I have been spring cleaning this week. It is my favorite time of year to clean since I can open the windows and let fresh air back into the house after it has been closed up all winter. While I was at it, I decided to give my guest bathroom a new color scheme.
It took less than 30 minutes!
It was quick and easy because the room has neutral walls and fixtures. All I had to do to change it up was to replace the fabric on the valance, hang a new shower curtain, and hang new towels in vibrant colors.
You may remember when I posted about how I made over the bathroom for $265 three years ago. (above) I liked it this way, but a few weeks ago I noticed the shower curtain was getting faded in spots. I had a new one on hand and got to work.
A few months ago, I had bought a white shower curtain at a thrift store. It was brand new and only $2. I figured I would use in someday. Well that someday became yesterday. It became my inspiration for the rooms new whiter and brighter color scheme.
Many readers have asked me how the $10 floor makeover I did in the room has held up. The diamonds on the floor used to be green. I changed them to black using craft and wall art vinyl. After 3 + years, it has held up perfectly. I use a Bona Mop to clean it.
I shopped my house to find something new to place on the toilet tank.
I found a few items, but am not sure if I like any of them. I am envisioning something wider and not as tall. I think a trip to the thrift store is on order again. If I don’t find anything there, I will check out HomeGoods, IKEA, and Marshalls. If I don’t find anything, I will put something decorative on the counter between the sinks and leave the toilet alone.
Now that I cleaned and updated the room, I have one more task to do before I can call this room spring clean. This task is going to take a little bit longer than 30 minutes though. It is the last space in my house left to declutter. It is this…
I haven’t cleaned it out in years. It is way past due for a good purging and reorganization. I also have to figure out how I am going to fix the floor. The brown spots are where rubber backed bath mats were stored when we first moved into the house. I found out the hard way that rubber discolors vinyl.
I will show you the “after” of this linen closet purge and makeover next week. I am excited to get started.
