I love the combination of bright green & chocolate brown so I used that as the inspiration for our bathroom makeover. I've never chosen a paint color without Mike's opinion before, so this was a first for me since I hit Home Depot on my way home from work on Friday. Unlike some women, I normally rely on Mike's opinion when it comes to decorating since we have very similar taste & he actually shows interest in how our house is decorated.
Anyway, Mike was a tad surprised when he saw the preview dollop of green on the top of the paint can as I pulled in from Home Depot. Luckily he's easy going & went with my plan!
These are the BEFORE pictures of our bathroom; like I said, very safe & somewhat dull.
And this is the absolutely, positively hideous light fixture I've been living with for years. I despise it & I'm thrilled to see it where it belongs -- in the trash.
And here is our new light fixture! And the very BOLD shade of green I chose!
We also painted the vanity a dark chocolate color & added hardware to freshen things up. This also happens to be the same color we painted our kitchen cabinets about two years ago.
All the accessories were purchased at Target. I had to keep the towel with the monkey on it since Cam loves it. He typically sits in his bath, notices it & starts saying, "ahh, ahh!" which is his interpretation of a monkey.
And that's our new bathroom! I'm sure many won't like the color I chose; I can only imagine what my mom will say. I'm guessing, wow, this is an interesting color.... And by interesting, she'll be thinking, Holy hell, this is hideous!
But, that's okay! We love it & we're the ones who live here, after all!
