I realized that I haven’t posted any good pictures of the second floor bathroom. Yes the bathroom is very pink! Instead of trying to hide the pink we decided to embrace it and go a step further, with the mint green walls. Since my earlier post I have been working on little things on the bathroom. We had to re-grout the tub, replace the stems of the faucet and do a few other not so exciting things. I have added more pictures all in black frames which I think was necessary to minimize the pinkness of the room. The only thing left for us to do in the bathroom is remove the old sink and install a new sink, faucet and cabinet.
This is what you see when you open the bathroom door:
The pictures are vintage prints that I framed. The light fixture and towel rod are from Restoration Hardware. The shelf is from Ikea. The flowers are from my stoop.
To the left of the nook we installed a magnifying mirror which we found at a yard sale (below).
This picture below shows the main wall in the bathroom. To the right is the bath and to the left is a huge window which faces south. I keep rotating my plants in here. I love succulents but the humidity is a little too much for them. I think that I have finally found the right plants for this spot.
I have a bunch of vintage candle holders over the heater cover (below). The heater cover was in pretty bad condition but we primed and painted it white and it is really convenient and hides the ugly radiator. To the right of this picture is our linen closet. I love my petite chandelier which was a total score on eBay.
This is what you see when you leave the bathroom (below). The sink nook is to the left and the bathroom leads out to the second floor hallway.
The bathroom, like the rest of the house, has a strange layout but we’ve made the space work for us.
