Home Tour – Hall Bath {and Plans}

The home tour continues! Today I’m showing you a room that I’ve never blogged about before – our second bathroom. It’s mainly gone unseen because we haven’t done much since slapping some paint on the wall shortly after moving in. Aside from that, it is by far the hardest room in the house to photograph. The bathroom is long, narrow, window-less and green. So, consider that a disclaimer for what is to come in the photography department. ;)

Like the rest of the house, this room was a blank slate when we moved in. Everything was original from the orangey oak cabinets to the linoleum floors. Oh yes, and a lovely wooden toilet seat.

We’ve painted the walls twice now. Our first green {Sassy Green by SW} was a big ol’ mistake. It looked like Shrek exploded on our walls. It was just much too yellow for such a small space under yellow lighting.

We repainted it with Leapfrog, also by Sherwin Williams, that has more blue undertones an is a bit grayer. {Although, these photos make it look much brighter than it is in person}.

I recently added an extra-long white, waffle weave shower curtain and it has made this small room feel so much bigger and brighter. I love using white linens and bath mats since they’re easy to keep looking clean and new with the help of bleach. 

We have also replaced the 20+ year old linoleum with tile. It’s the same greige tile in the master bath

On the to-do list for this room is updating the light fixture and adding a frame to the builder grade mirror. The major to-do will be updating the cabinets. I’m still debating about whether I’d like to stain them darker or paint them. What would you do? Either way, the orange oak has gotta go!
