Guest Bathroom

I know that I have been MIA for a week and half, but things got crazy again.  We moved into our new house and I am finally able to see the light from unpacking and and organizing.  In the middle of everything my parents came into town for memorial day weekend and I have been interviewing for jobs.  So, even though I am not working I am so busy!

Anyway, I would like to share the one room that is ‘done’ for now.  The previous owner painted the room a nice neutral color that matched my new shower curtain that I had purchased for staging my old house.  There was no hand towel or bath towel hook or rack, which was really strange.  I think that the previous owners did not have children using that bathroom, because I don’t know how you have a bathroom with out towel racks.  (Also strange was that there was no toilet paper holder in the master bathroom.)  So we went to Homegoods and bought some nice holders for very reasonable prices and installed them.  Seriously it took only about an hour to install all three.

Here are the new Pics:

I like that this bathroom has a window in it, when we were looking at houses this was one of the pluses of this house.  Even the nail on the wall for the picture was in a decent spot, so I used the picture that I had in my family room bathroom from the old house.  The thing that I don’t understand from this bathroom are all the builder grade features.  The rest of the house has granite and cherry cabinets, and upgrade light fixtures.   Actually it is probably difficult to see in the pictures but the floor has a very standard almost dated, pink tile that continues through to the back of the tub, which is weird since the house was just built 5 years ago.  Anyway there plans for this bathroom, but for the present it is good.

This picture shows off my new towel holders.  There really wasn’t a place for a bath towel rack, and since for right now this is just a guest bathroom, we installed a towel hook.  This picture also shows off my bathroom closet, which I love.  Although with 4 bathrooms in the house and three of them full, I am a little short on towels.  So, I guess the closet isn’t very full, but we have lots of storage when we need it.

I know not all that exciting, since I didn’t do much in here, but it is a start.  It is great to have one room organized.  I am currently working on the office, but it is a diaster.  I found a color that I love, but I ran out of paint, so I had it mixed again and I waited a couple of days before I had time to paint again.  I stirred the paint and painted a second coat, but it was too dark, which upset me since I had the can from Lowe’s and gave it to the paint lady and she mixed it exactly to the previous formula.  So after a day or two of grumpiness, I sucked it up and touched it up, but the color was too light.  So now I think it was my fault for not stirring the paint properly.  I hope that is the problem.  I have painted soooooo many rooms before and never run into this problem. Look:

It is a little difficult to see in the picture, but it looks bad!  So FRUSTRATING!!!  Anyway I guess the plan is to get another gallon of paint and paint immediately after it is mixed in the store.  Anyone else have this happen to them?  What did you do?
