bathroom progress...

Before.  I didn't like how dark it looked.








Well I have been making a lot of progress on our bathroom refresh.  As you can see from the before photo, our bathroom was very dark with the brown curtain and blue rug. We don't have any windows in our bathroom, so it's naturally a lot darker in there.

As part of the January Cure, my goal project for this month was doing a simple bathroom refresh.  We ended up going with a bath mat and curtain from West Elm (love that store!) since they were having a bath sale last weekend.  As we compared the two mats we liked the most in the store, Landon and I both landed on the Horizon Stripe Bath Mat in clearwater.  Then, we splurged a bit on a quality Waffle shower curtain since we really wanted something that could last for years and go with any color scheme we end up with.  It all ended up being like a late Christmas gift, since we used our leftover gift cash to pay for most of it.

So far, we love how the look is turning out.  The bathroom seems so much brighter now, and I love how it feels more spa-ish when I walk in.  While I am still hunting for something to place above the toilet in a bare spot, if I end up not figuring that out this month, I am still so happy with what we've done.

Yesterday, I cleaned out and organized our sink vanity.  That thing was filled up with tons of junk and leftover toiletries, and now it's stream-lined and there's a spot for everything.  I love a clean bathroom!

Now, we'll be spending a lot more time in this room as we're potty training Finn this weekend.  Perfect timing. :)

Wow! What a difference in brightness! It's so fun to change things up every once in a while--it makes the normal things (like taking a shower) feel special and luxurious! I also love where you hung your necklace hooks--perfect!
