The guestroom and hall bath were previously, hmmm, no nice way to say it - horrific! The guestroom was a workout room for the previous owner and the ceilings had black streaks (why? no clue) and the walls were baby blue. Since this room was secluded from the other bedrooms, near the hall bath, and had a nice vaulted ceiling I decided to create the guest suite in here.
Here's my color inspiration (loosely):
|Design Seeds Teal Doors|
|The Previous Owners Work Out Room|
|The Little Mermaid Hall Bath|
Unfortunately I did not take a picture of the light switch plate before my husband broke it and threw it away. However, it was a more elaborate version of this one:
All these things are well and good for the right person, in the right home, in the right situation. None of those apply here, so after taking all the towel bars down, taking the blue cover off the shower curtain rod (yes, more blue) and applying a primer and three coats of paint to the ceiling (luckily only one coat to the walls) we are almost to a happy point. To be honest, the ceiling needs another coat, but I'm about over it right now.
Oh one last thing - had to show you how these towel bars were mounted. I mean gee whiz! Are we swinging from it or what? Two huge anchors and three screws PER END. Perhaps it doubled as a bar for pull-ups... after all, it was next to the workout room. That reminds me...I should do something that resembles a workout...
