Finished room #2!!!
(I feel on a roll!) This bathroom, is so different from the murder closet it started off as! Looking at it now, it's hard to believe it was the red, purple, green, yellow, and almond mess it was before! We asked the homeowner to have her painter get rid of the red before moving in, which made a huge difference, but I still wasn't in love with the purple vanity, or the yellow mirror; so we took the mirror down and put it in the basement (it weighed an absolute TON) and we replaced it with a simple frameless beveled mirror from IKEA. The purple of the vanity took some thinking about, the homeowner said I could paint it the trim green color if I wanted, but I decided that while I can live with the green, I didn't really want to add more. I came to the conclusion that contact paper would be a perfect 1 year solution, that was still wipeable and waterproof, but would come off after the year without damaging the vanity. I was able to find an expresso brown photographic wood one, that I thought would be perfect for the vanity, and I think it really was. I had to do some piecing for the width, but you can't even see it because of the wood grain and color, so it worked out perfectly. The basket on the bottom shelf was in the kitchen in Korea, and the guest bedroom in Ohio, and now its current life is as a toilet paper and new hand towels holder in spain. Oh! And we installed the toilet paper holder, (there was nothing here before.) I've covered things with contact paper before, and it really does come off residue free, and stays in place while you want it there, especially in a minimal use space like the guest half bathroom.) The paintings and lithographs are all vintage originals, and the brushes are from Korea. It's nice to be able to shop our already owned stuff to get rooms finished! (The deer head is a hand carved wood one from the Philippines, that I painted.) #airforcefamily #airforcelife #airforcewife #militaryfamily #militarylife #militarywife #moving #movingin #movingishard #madrid #maker #makersgonnamake #spain #pcslife #pcsproblems #rentalhouse #homedecor #budgetdecor #rentersolutions #thegreatgriffithmigration2017
