But who wants them on wallpaper in their bathroom all year-long? Not this girl, just saying. As many of you are already aware if you read this blog post that in our only full bathroom we have Christmas tree wallpaper as shown below.
Underneath the Christmas tree wall paper is another layer, which it looks like the previous owners tried to paint unsuccessfully. Anyway, I’m sure you might be asking yourselves what coordinates so well with Christmas tree wallpaper, that’s right sea shells.
Oh, the cherry on top of that combination is the yellowed marble print panelling and white linoleum sticky tiles.
Anyway, I’m bringing all of this up because Max so lovingly signed my permission slip to add an affordable bathroom redo to the list of items on the agenda next week. When we found out the paneling isn’t hiding tile earlier this week too, that was all I needed and my mind started whirling. The plan is to replace the current paneling with more modern paneling like shown here. I can’t wait. The state of the bathroom has really pushed the limitations of my tolerance, and I’m really excited for all the upcoming changes.
The game plan right now is to keep the vanity. Also, the lighting is covered because when we moved in we bought a new light fixture for the bathroom. Awesome. The only thing we’re going to have to work into the budget is paneling, new flooring (most likely a better linoleum tile), and well the anticipated big money grip – the new sink top. We’ve been debating checking out some of the reuse/recycle shops around here such as Second Chance of Baltimore. We’re planning to taking our measurements and our searching gloves and getting our dig on before heading to Lowes or Home Depot to check out new sink tops – again like I already said I can’t wait.
