I love before and after shots. Like on those home make over shows where they show you what the room looked like before and then after all the painting and work is done. Maybe it's because I know how much work it takes to make the transformation a success, but I find looking at how the room started and then the finished product brings a lot satisfaction.
As I've mentioned before when we bought out house it was very; stuck in the 80's. The guest bathroom had a floral wallpaper on one wall while the other walls were painted beige. There were also these retro lights that hung on chains from the ceiling. So, after peeling wallpaper, changing the light fixture, changing out the towel rods and playing around with some paint, the guest bathroom is probably my 2nd favorite room in the house. It's so bright and cheery. (almost a little girly, but without going over the top.)
So keeping the the theme of before and after shots; here are mine. This is the way the bathroom looked when we bought it. (See what I mean about the retro 80 look?!?!)
And now for the "After" shot. As you can see I selected a light blue color. This color actually compliments the liners in my Longaberger baskets that I used to decorate the bathroom with. I also selected black wrought iron towel hangers to coordinate with the Longaberger wrought iron. And then if you look closely you'll see a sunflower hook. (Of course I had to incorporate some sunflowers in the room, after all this is my house we're talking about.)
