Day 37 – A Change is as Good as a Rest

We moved into our first home that we (i.e. the bank) own in early August 2009.  I promised myself that we’d live here for a year before doing any major redecorating.   There just doesn’t seem to be any point in drastically changing things until they’ve been given a chance.  That, and we can’t afford it because we just “bought” a house.

But my hubby and I couldn’t help but notice that certain rooms were, to put it mildly, getting us down.  They just weren’t comfortable and/or functional.

So we decided to take matters into our own hands.  With a few bucks for paint and simple accessories, we transformed our downstairs bathroom.

Our lower level bathroom has no windows, is very dark and is barely bigger than a closet.  Not at all pleasant.  So we took a risk and painted it an orangy-white.  The pictures don’t do it justice, but I think  it’s beautiful.  Every day, when I walk into that room now, I smile.  A simple color change has made all the difference.  Or maybe that’s the aromatherapy candle?  Either way, I like it.

P.S. Stay tuned for the next transformation… dark-green spare bedroom will magically change into a sunny office… a work still in progress
