Finishing Touches on the Guest Bathroom

David did a great job on the second coat of Farrow & Ball Hound Lemon in the guest bathroom upstairs!DSC_0306


Accessories for Bathroom!

We found this super cute shower curtain and hand towel from Target to accompany the yellow:

Art for Above the Toilet

I decided I wanted to pick up the green from those in something on the walls, so we spray painted some picture frames green to match!


Cheap Art: Postcards

I got these frames back in Alexandria at Michael’s for buy one get one free, and framed some of the postcards I had sent to David back when I did my Fulbright grant in Germany (in 2009-2010).



Spray Painting Picture Frames

We removed the backings and set the frames out on contractor paper.



David did all the spraying and I stayed back because of the fumes.



Looking good so far!



All green!


This is the spray can we used.  Easy to spray according to David.  We ended up doing two coats because we missed a lot of angles the first time, so I recommend one coat then shifting all the frames around before the second coat so you can see them better.

Deciding Where to Hang the Photos On the Wall: Contractor Paper

Anyway, we used contractor paper again to make shapes of the frames and tape them on the bathroom walls to see how we liked it.




After the paper was taped up and we liked how it looked, David hung the frames!




We made a list minute decision to move one of the frames around after I thought there were too many above the toilet– making it look kind of cluttered.

So there you have it, folks!  Our decorated bathroom!

Except…. now I think it has too much going on. bright green colorful framed art hung on yellow wall above toilet in bathroom


I would really value everyone’s opinions: too much green/ stuff on the walls?  Just enough for a future kid’s bathroom?  Not enough?  I’m toying with the idea of repainting all the frames Capitol White (the same color as the beadboard/ trim) because that might make it look less busy… Please let me know what you think!DSC_0322

  1. Having stayed overnight and used said bathroom, I feel fully qualified to comment. ^_^ NO, I don’t think there is too much going on! I think the room is balanced, and the pictures are fun–they are especially cool knowing the sentimental history behind them =)

  2. It looks very nice! You spend so much time in thinking about all the details!
    (I especially like the photo of the cows as you may remember I love cows very much!)

  4. Love love love that dry basin. What a find! I’m with you on the Capitol white frames. The green frames command quite a bit of attention when it should go to that beautiful sink.

    1. You hit it dead on– that’s what my problem has been in the bathroom! Your attention is diverted instantly and I want it to be pretty focused on the sink or shower… not the walls! Thanks for verbalizing something that was bothering me that I couldn’t put my finger on.
