This morning, I woke up and decided I would procrastinate no more. The bathroom project has to be done before the holidays. It just has to! I'm tired of it hanging over my head.
I was sure I was going to paint the white walls with the very light, barely there purple called Amethyst Cream. In all honesty, this color wasn't much of a change from the sterile white that was already there. It was white with a teeny, tiny hint of lavender. I didn't think that would make the room look much different.
It was time for me to face the truth about what I wanted the bathroom to be. I had to embrace the purple!
I ran to Home Depot first thing in the morning to buy a gallon of February Frost, an obvious lavender color. It's a close match to the lavender bathtub.

Tomorrow, I'll put a second coat on the walls and pull the tape off when everything is dry. I can't wait!
I've been casually looking for a matching shower curtain and window curtains for the room since February. I haven't found anything I like yet. And, I'm kind of shocked at how impossible it seems to be to find matching shower and window curtains. Am I the only one that's noticed that? Is it that unusual for a bathroom to have a window? Or maybe it's unusual for someone to want to match the shower curtain to the window curtain.
Anyway, I've decided the only way I'm going to find something I like is to sew it myself. I just ordered this pattern from eBay. As soon as I get it, I'll make a trip to the fabric store.
The end of the bathroom project is finally in sight!
