Spring Break Bathroom Re-Do

Indentured servitude is certainly one good way to celebrate Spring Break. Just look at their joyful, paint-splattered faces -- they are having the time of their lives painting, er, transforming the bathroom!


Painting is tedious to be sure, but working around all the bathroom fixtures is really a pain. Now just add to that balancing on the edge of the tub with a cupful of paint and all kinds of hilarity could ensure. Luckily, no hilarity. Just a smooth even coat of color.

Years ago, the bathroom was wallpapered with a lovely floral motif. The floral went bye-bye and the walls become a lovely lavender with a matching shower curtain. Years later...the lavender was no longer lovely and a more lovely brown was taking it's place. Pardon the cell phone photograghy, but if you look very closely...you can see the brown really is lovely. Viking daughter is painting with the dark chocolate brown whilst Wildcat daughter is painting with the milk chocolate brown. Oooh. Aaah. Lovely. To the lovely brown, we added a lovely new shower curtain and some lovely red mats with matching towels. It's kind of like cherry chocolate now. Lovely!

p.s. So somehow the finished product picture loaded first and I don't know how to un-do. Oh well. Enjoy it first. It's kinda like knowing who did it before the end of the book.
