I had wanted to decorate my bathroom in a yellow-gray-white color scheme for a while, so when I moved into my current apartment, I knew this was the time to do it. I'm sure I saw this color combination in magazines before then and just didn't realize it, but I swear, since I decided to use these colors I have seen them together more and more. I guess it's like when you discover a new word- all of a sudden you see it everywhere.
I found these two designs I liked- one bedroom and one bathroom, on Pinterest (after I decorated my bathroom, of course):
I started with towels and a shower curtain, these items I knew would make the biggest impact.
On the wall opposite the towel bar, I have had problems with art... For 9 months I had three plates I bought at Goodwill and spray painted yellow, silver, and white hung on the wall. But when my dad and sister came to visit in April, my dad accidentally hit one with his head and it crashed to the ground in pieces.
So I replaced it with some diy art made out of an Ikea frame I purchased at Goodwill and paint chips.
I wasn't sure how I felt about it. It was a bit more angular and rigid than I thought it would be. Then I knew how I felt about it when one day I walked into the bathroom and found it on the ground- face up, with broken glass sitting in the frame. It was weird though, the hanger was completely on the back and the nail was in the wall...
But just a few days ago I drove by the dumpster and found this:
I pulled it out of the trash, put a screw in the bottom bar and wiped off the 1/8 inch of dust on it. I ended up having to take the bottom bar off to fit it behind the toilet and then screwed it back together once it was in place. But getting it into place took some maneuvering. As soon as I figured out how to get it behind the toilet this happened:
I ended up unscrewing the towel bar and putting it away to put back up when I move out.
I think it looks great! And it was FREE!
I used mirrors I took out of their frames that I had on hand from a failed diy project, and a yellow glass vase I had bought a while ago for the bathroom.
What do you think? How is your bathroom decorated, do you have a color scheme? Do you have any ideas for art for my bathroom?
