The Gynormus reveal......

I know that is not a word....I just made it up.  Blaa....blaa....busy day......bhlaa.....too tired to edit pictures......not very good at it anyway.  I mean really?  Can we be good at everything.  It all gets so complicated anyway....."complicated order"  ha ha.  Bon Qui Qui.

Alright Alright....pictures.
Do you need the reminder of what it looked like before?????
Ok...

And......ta da...in a small way.  Really it is not that much but very little $$$$ spent.
Shower curtain.  2 packages of bias tape.  $1.25 each.  Iron on.  I had the iron curtain rod in my basement.  Fo real.
A whole bunch of linens, some vintage...some not. Had.
Changed out the mirror.  Yes...I already had it in another room.  One Restoration Hardware mirror to be sold on CL.

Hung the bird pictures.  Had em.  The black box also.  Did buy the towels and 2 soaps from West Elm.  BUT....I had a $25.00 gift certificate.  So technically......nothing.

I actually had this vanity made 5 or 6 years ago when the wallpaper went up.
Vintage locker basket for towels.  Not new.
It literally all started with adding the black trim...you likey?
The trim color is a SW color called Dove.
Done...moving on now.  Wallpaper is staying for the time being.

Off to the beach tomorrow.

Don't forget about the giveaway.  It's still on.  Somebody wanted to know who makes that fabric.  It is Echo Design by Kravet and it is called Latika.  Not sure what colorway it is.

Sha Ray is going to pack now.

You just took a nice space to a GREAT one. Love all the subtle changes...and even more that it was cost friendly.

Lauren@BaylorSays... said...

Nice job!! Love all the changes and I can't even iron stuff on, so to me you are a DIY genius (doesn't that feel good?!). I just redid my powder room and after everything, I think those dang west elm towels are my favorite part. Seriously, love them.

Nancy Carey said...

I love how serene and textured-feeling this is. So fresh to do the beadboard gray and it all works so great together. Love it.

Emily A. Clark said...

So glad you nailed holes in the wallpaper--the birds were totally worth it! Love it. So "Sherry"!

Sha Ray...Nice job. I love seeing changes as I am doing that all the time...usually just moving stuff around. too. I did that last night, fact. FUN.

Cindy said...

Ok, if you can quote Bon Qui Qui we're soul mates!
The update is wonderful, the black mirror with the bird prints is sooo good, and then the black trim... perfect...what is it with black??? it always makes things look better. I love the S towel and the stripey towel, they really finish it off and so does that touch of green. I think it's funny that your soap is green fig lemon... what the hell scent is green fig lemon?
