Some of you may remember my post regarding the guest bath in our 70s home. I like earthy, warm tones and the bath fixtures all function fine, so I wanted to work with the avocado colors and update on a budget. Well, I finished most of the work a few months ago, but since weÂre using the bath, I had to wait until my husband went out of town to complete the counter tops. I finally did, and hereÂs what I have so far. We havenÂt decided what to do about the floor yet, so I left the quarter round on the vanity white, but that will change eventually. I donÂt have many accessories and I havenÂt finished the matching window valance, but I was eager to take photos while everything was clean and tidy.
The walls are SW Ecru; the photos don't show it well, but it made a huge difference and I really love this shade. I primed and base coated the laminate counter with SW Harmonic Tan and sponged on various acrylic paints for a faux granite look. The fabric is Waverly Indienne on the bottom and just something I found to match at Hobby Lobby for the top. The curtain rod is a bamboo pole I cut to fit, and I have another matching one for the future window valance. I've since added trim to the shower curtain and may use the same trim on the paper shades I bought at the thrift store for $1 each. I'm still considering different sconces, but these look nice for now (one needs to be rewired, hence the unlit bulb). All in all, I've only spent about $75 since I repurposed several things, like the mirrors from another bath, leftover grasscloth wallpaper and paint, etc. The faucets will be changed out for brushed nickel, which will be the biggest expense.
