my master bath< pink >re-do

hi friends,
so- i haven't posted in a couple of days or so, because i've been working on my master bathroom. it was a kinda terra cotta pink and that was from 7-8 years ago! so you can imagine how badly it needed painting. i've wanted to do it for a couple of years now, ever since i bought these curtains and shower curtain in this pretty shabby chic fabric. i got them all at marshall's for a steal! love that store! anyway, i got out some bubble gum pink i previously used in my girls room(big color mistake!) and mixed it w/ plain white. so it turned out to be a lovely light pink that i like to call laura ashley pink. because it matches this towel that i got at home goods that is by l.a. the picture below is the pretty light fixture i got 7 yrs ago at lamps plus. discounted because it was missing the crystals, so i just made my own beaded danglie's for it for about $13! see how dark that other terra cotta pink made the bathroom? it's MUCH brighter now! i also painted the cabs( they used to be green)
in a creamy white that is called "tiramisu". i had these beadboard panels that my hubby cut out for these cabs a long time ago, so i painted them the same color as the walls. i kept the curtains and shower curtain and the hardware the same, gotta be cheap or free! but i painted the frames w/ pics of my girls in them and hung a vintage hankie framed in an oval frame above the cab over the loo. i also took this mirror and hung it in there. i like how it's distressed from time and the silvering on the mirror is chipping off the back a little too. now all i have left to do is paint the ceiling and the crown moulding (and maybe add a few more mirrors to the one i told you about here). i have something special in mind for the ceiling- but you'll have to check back in a couple days to see that! i hope it turns out!!!! thanks for stopping by the cottage to visit my almost done re-done in another pink bathroom! come back to see the rest! i will be linking to these lovely parties; met monday
tip me tuesday
toot your horn tuesday


  1. Oh, how precious! I can't wait to see what the ceiling surprise will be! My fave is definitely the light fixture. Only $13 for those little crystals? It's GREAT when you get to do things on the cheap that turn out fabulous, isn't it? Love it!

  6. YOur bathroom is looking so shabby chic. I love it. I love the light fixture. Adding the crystals made it even prettier. The beadboared panels gave the cabinet a vintage feel. I'm in the process of re-doing 2 bathrooms right now and it is so hard. I'm having to put a new floor in one of them. I can't wait to get to the decorating stage. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Oh my, I love it. I want your shower curtain! Such a cute space! Oh! I just noticed my little button up there in your side bar. Thank you so much! You just made my night! I'm following you now...thought I already was.

    Have a great Sunday,
