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
