It was a year ago...

It was a year ago June that we remodeled the upstairs bathroom. When I say remodeled, perhaps I should say that we didn't completely re-gut it, but rather update it. Some of you may remember this post of when we were taking down that wallpaper.

Just last week it dawned on me that I never shared the "after" pictures here on the blog, so I grabbed my camera and took a few to share.

We went with a blue-gray paint, though it turned out more blue than what it looked like on the card. It worked out well though since the flooring has blue in it, and blue is practically the Cross family color!

On the long wall we put up some beadboard, wainscoting, or whatever you wish to call it. We heard at least three different names for the same wood paneling. :) We like the coastal/cottage feel it gives. We said goodbye to the ugly towel racks, and put up this functional one with hooks for the towels, washcloth's, or as one sister uses: a shower cap. 

The factory mirror that extended to the edge of the counter was replaced with two squared beveled mirrors over each sink. It took some getting used to, but now everyone loves them.
And on a different note, if you haven't entered the giveaway, you have until Tuesday at midnight to enter!

Your bathroom is beautiful. I love that you have different colored towels, somehow they just bring it all together, you know?

Thankyou, Hannah. Having different colored towels is something that is new to us, but it's fun. Not to mention helpful in knowing whose towel is whose in a larger family!
