A Brief Interlude

When Inspiration Strikes

I've already talked about this . . . my bathroom renovation project . . . that included removing old (and really stuck-on, I might add) wallpaper.  Well.  The project took awhile!  I got a good start, and then there was spring - and the garden needed a lot of attention.  And then we went on a trip to Wyoming and Colorado.  And then Tom started heading up north every week for some fishing.  (You know.  Life.)  And the project just . . . crawled along.

But that was kinda okay.

Because while I knew what I didn't want the bathroom to look like (Busy), I really had no idea what I DID want it to look like!  So we just kept plugging along.  Removing the wallpaper.  Preparing the walls.  Painting the ceiling.  Telling each other that it would "look great when it was finished."

And then inspiration struck . . . in the form of an inexpensive (bonus!) shower curtain at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Once I had that shower curtain, everything fell into place!  I had my color palette.  I could choose a paint color.  A rug.  Towels.

It all came together last weekend, when Tom installed the hardware (new towel bars, etc.).  
And I am so pleased!

I love the shower curtain, but my favorite thing is the orange rug. . .

(I never can resist a pop of color.)

Anyway.
I'm happy.  Tom's happy.  (JoJo's happy.)  
And my timing couldn't be better. . .  because I have a guest arriving today!
(Any guesses?)

What did the bathroom look like before, you ask?  Ah. . . here's a "before" shot . . .
