Thank you to Susan for hosting Metamorphosis Monday. Peeking into other bloggers homes has been an inspiration! Since I haven't completed any major or minor projects in the last few weeks, here is a project we finished a couple years ago. It was lots of fun to pull out the before pictures (taken over 20 years ago).
Just to show you what a brave person I am ...here is our upstairs bathroom. This is the way it looked for the first year or so we were in our house. It is the only bath upstairs. It has two entries. One from the master bedroom and one from the hallway. I want you to imagine what a busy room this was with all six of us squeezing in front of the mirror when our children were growing up! (We do have another full bath and a half bath downstairs but this is the room we all crowded into.)
This is a view of our shower and bath.
We put up Waverly wallpaper in the late 80's. And yes, I sponge pained the outside of the clawfoot tub in pink!
A few years ago I decided I needed another change....
We added bead board and a shelf above it. We also painted the walls a dark blue. (Oh, and I repainted the outside of the tub too.)
For those of you with old homes I imagine you have noticed all the brass. Yes, I am constantly polishing it!
This wall is opposite the tub. I love artwork everywhere including the bathroom!
We painted the woodwork under the sink to match the bead board. The mirror and all the fixtures were here when we moved in with the exception of the lights beside the mirror. We added those. They are old. I found them at a salvage shop in Berkeley.
So there you have it - A tour of my upstairs bathroom.
A close up of the "new" brass light fixtures.
The ceiling light. (That is a shadow. The ceiling really is clean.)
The room is fairly large so I used a large carpet for the center of the room.
This tub has been on this hardwood floor for years!
Thanks for stopping by!
