When we first moved in six years ago, we were
extremely happy to have an ensuite bathroom.
We didn't love the tile choice the builder/flipper had made, however.
We got estimates for a redo—new tiles on the backsplash and floor,
new cabinet, and bead board on the walls.
If memory serves the cost would've been $6,000.
Reality check, anyone?
We have children to educate.
Money doesn't grow on trees!
We were going to redo a recently redone (not hideous) bathroom.
Instead, I opted for a redon't.
I tried painting the walls the same color as our master bedroom.
I tried repainting the walls...
something vibrant and daring and…
As it turns out, the third time really is the charm,
or it's charming enough for now.
First, I selected new fabric for the custom shower curtain.
Next, I took pictures of the tile
and headed to our trusted Benjamin Moore store.
A consultant helped me select a shade to complement the gray.
Next Day Blinds made a custom shade.
I wanted dark to contrast the light walls and match the shades in our bedroom.
To add color I used a few red accents.
It's not our dream ensuite bath, but I'm happy with it.
And I'm very glad not to have to think about it any longer!
