Bathroom updates

Another installment of House Tour Tuesday! Last fall I finally nailed down a major culprit as to why I never looked great in the bathroom mirror. The color reflecting off of the bright green walls (a color I loved eight years ago) and the yellow light was doing nothing for me. So paint!

IMG_5262My mom visited in October and we painted together. I chose a cool gray color for the walls and we decided to paint the ceiling the same color. We got a new shower curtain. Something about upgrading to a fabric curtain instead of vinyl feels grown-up. We got a new bath mat and wash clothes that match the curtain.
