Hall Bathroom - Starting Over & Re-Grouping

Ok, some of the things that I thought were going to be fabulous about the bathroom redo havn't worked out so great.

First - paint has been a real trial.  Well, I finally have a nice off white that doesn't look pink, green or anything in-between.  Now that is 6 different times of painting this room.  I am more than done painting for a white.  The Ikat fabric that I used for the shower curtain is very nice, just not me, so I am giving it to a friend.  It will be perfect for her.

I havn't found a mirror that I like, so I am still using the old one I had.  I did get a fabulous birthday gift that is going to be wonderful, and that is the beautiful tissue holder and the tray holding the drink glass and soap pump.  Aren't they gorgeous.  Stunning black and gold Le Bain.  I love them.

I found one piece of art that I absolutely love and you can see just a tiny corner of a fabric that I think will really give me the look that I am wanting.

Here's another sneak peak too.  

Finally found a faucet that I like and it is being shipped asap, so hopefully it is perfect when it gets here.

Ok, I am on a roll now, so stay tuned, the final reveal is coming soon.

Also, don't forget, mark your calendars for the 2015 Welcome To Fall Home Tours.  (Here's a little sneak peak)

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:

                     I'd love to have you follow me on any of the following.

  9. I applaud you for all the effort you're giving this room. Sometimes what we plan doesn't work out. My cabinet I painted in our dining room is mine. If it ever cools a bit repainting will take it place. Can't wait to see your bath

    Be a sweetie,

  13. Hi Marty,
    I know what you mean about whites. They take on so many different hues at certain times of the day and night and how the light comes in a room too. I have found that if I chose a white with gray tones it does really well in my house. Whites with cream tones always were pink or green for me too. Love the fabric for the shower curtian it is gorgeous. Love the yellow and gray being added in. Your vanity set is gorgeous.

  14. They say, no pain-no gain so I know in time and with all the Pain you've been through with this room, a beautiful end result will be your Gain...
    I'll be watching :) rooting for you too.

  15. Can't wait to see it all finished! I know it will be beautiful. You always do such an amazing job. xxx Maria

  18. Marty, it looks like it is going to be a beautiful transformation! Can't wait to see the final photos…so inspiring. Lidy

  19. I'm sorry to hear you wound up doing another transformation on the bathroom, Marty, but I know how it can just drive you up a wall when you just aren't happy with a look. I love the colors in the new fabric - is that a paisley pattern? Love those accessories on your sink.

  20. Marty I love the new artwork you found and the pretty sink accessories you got for your birthday! Looking forward to seeing the new shower curtain...I'm sure your friend is super thrilled to get that beautiful black and white one!

  21. Love those accessories! Very glam and luxe. I hope now that you have the paint perfected things will go a bit better. I love that faucet- can't wait to see it installed.
