Step 2

Back in December I took my boring half bath from blah to fun by painting it green. Before I painted it, here's how it was looking (except with hardwood floors).


So boring, right? And here's the room after a coat of paint.


My next step was to add a new mirror. The builder mirror was not doing it for me at all - bye bye mirror! I had bought a mirror at Target quite some time back with the intention to use it in this bathroom, but it sat unused for the longest time. No more! The mirror now has a home. =)

I also used my friend Meredith's directions to make a no-sew roman shade for this room. I actually made one back in December, but then I hated my fabric choice and decided to start over. I hope I'm not the only one that happens to and I also hope that I will find a use for that shade somewhere else.

After my fabric choice fail, I selected some from fabric.com and started the project once more.


Meredith's instructions were awesome and the shade ended up looking amazing! I was so proud I had done it myself. =)

Here's how the shade looks when it's down.



Here it is up as well.


I love how it turned out and I love the color it brings to the room. And of course here's the new mirror looking pretty - so much better then the builder mirror, right?


Now onto Step 3!
