{Pin}spired Copycat Week 7 = BATHROOM REVEAL!

This week's {Pin}spiration has been a work in progress for a while. It's actually a few pins mashed together into one big beautiful masterpiece!

 It all started out with THIS pin. Oooh, the colors were love at first sight. I wanted something bright and happy for our master bathroom. Aqua. *drool*

Because when we moved in, our bathroom looked like this.

I get depressed and grumpy just from looking at it. Dark...old lady...forest green...UGH!!! 

I saw THIS pin and knew that those were the colors I wanted. Teal, aqua and a bright cheery yellow!

SO, with the help of Glidden Paint with primer in shade Almost Aqua WGG27, I attacked the room with paint and great joy. And right away it looked SOOO much better! (The light in the bathroom made the colors all wonky in the pictures...the paint sample pictures are the actual colors!!!)

The stenciled part of the wall is Glidden Bermuda Bay WGB02

I didn't know what to do for wall decor. I knew I wanted something shabby chic...but what? So, back to Pinterest I went, and saw THIS pin of a cool shelf thing.

Oooh. I had seen something JUST like this at the local thrift store and contemplated buying it, but didn't. *smacking forehead* I rushed back to the thrift store and bought it....$7. It was spray painted gold, so I showed it who was boss and spray painted it white. I totally won.

I also found some random things at the thrift store and spray painted them Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze and Krylon Bauhaus Gold. Oh, and the vintage sconce things hanging on the stenciled wall? Thrift store, too! Spray painted them white with the same spray paint as the shelf thing. The butterflies are the same Bauhaus Gold.

And, that about covers it for now. I'll be adding more things, I'm sure. But for now, I'm content enough! SOOOO much better, don't you think? It's amazing what a little paint and imagination (and by that I mean Pinterest) can do!
