In this bathroom I chose I soothing green (to match the guest bedroom- for another post) with black accents. Everybody questioned my use of black, especially for the shower curtain, but I love how it turned out. This bathroom also had a brass light fixture, which I removed, spray-painted black, and put back up. It was my first spray-painting adventure and I loved it!
I shopped in my basement and found the perfect artwork in black frames. One is a boat in water (photograph). This was a card with a photograph on it that I purchased years ago in New Hampshire and framed. The other (pictured below) was also a card that I purchased in Duluth and framed.
This was a really inexpensive and easy makeover. I don't have the exact cost, but it was definitely under $100 total. It amounted to about $9 for primer and spray-paint; paint (shared cost with guest bedroom re-do), about $20 for the shower curtain and another about $40 for towels, hand towels and washcloths for guests. I bought black hand towels to match the shower curtain, and found guest towels and washcloths at TJ Maxx that match the paint color exactly. I LOVE that store!!
Here is the light fixture before:

End result: a bathroom I love! Good luck with your next home improvement project. Post a comment about how it goes!
Until next time...
