I am calling this collateral damage.
After spending weeks working on the storage space across from the bathroom I got it in my head that our bathroom was all wrong and needed a bright, clean new look. So I decided to say Bye-Bye to my little birdies and their trees.
Now, Don’t get me wrong. I loved my little trees, especially since they were a labor of love (check out Making Mistakes Work). But, we have been living with them for almost 2 years, and I just felt the bathroom was just screaming out -white, I want to be white.
I have been having this back and forth struggle with trying to go very pale or adding color to my space. Latley, I am being seduced more by the very pale look of the Scandinavian country styles that I so love. So it was an easy choice when it came to changing our bathroom.
Since it is such a small space I felt I could try it out.
I also, wanted to try my had at the faux board and batten.
I think I love it!.
It took me a weeks worth of time to do the work, and around $50 in materials.
I pretty much stripped it down and let the natural elements do their jobs. The shelf I ended up using was re-purposed from the basement. I still have 3 of them down there. I love the way it looks so much that the remaining shelves may show up in other places.
And the best response I got was from my daughter who told me it was so beautiful, it brought tears to her eyes.
