time for some change


Last weekend we decided it was time for some change. After living in the house for a year and not making any changes to it we decided it’s time to put away some money and start small: one room at a time. We decided to spruce up the guest bathroom first since it doesn’t need much changing and it is the smallest room in the house.

We didn’t do much actually but it made a world of difference. In three Target trips and one Bed Bath and Beyond trip we bought new towels, bought a matching set of bathroom accessories, and bought new drawer pulls for the cabinet, and a new shower curtain. I bought a can of white paint  and went to town on our bathroom. I am a one-woman painting outfit. I love painting walls. I am in no way a creative painter but painting houses… love it!


Here is what it looked like when I moved in (1 year ago).


As you can see it’s not white but it’s a lovely shade of drab (mauve)…


And this is what it looks like now!








Adam picked everything himself. We went with a grey and white theme and everything else was up to him.  He did a really nice job picking out his accessories. I really like the look of everything. Here’s the breakdown of what is new to the bathroom and where it came from…


  • Drawer pulls
  • Bath mat
  • Towels
  • Accessories
  • Garbage


Bed Bath and Beyond:

  • Shower curtain



  • Lowe’s – Valspar Swiss Coffee


Those blue bottles of man stuff:

  • Sephora- Jack Black skincare line (All Adam’s stuff. He LOVES it.)


I’m really happy with the way everything turned out. Love the small changes we can make to freshen up the house and make it our own.
