From Bees to Birds~A MAJOR Decluttering....

First I want to say that I LOVED my
Bee bathroom....for 10 yrs!
But, after awhile sometimes,
you grow tired of certain styles. 
 I'm sure you know what I mean.
So, grab a cup of somethin' somethin'
and see the transformation. 
I am loving it!


 ~Before~
Nicely done I thought!
With wall magic in the green. You know
that two roller tray thing....
late 80's early 90's.  Looked great
compared to the bright lavender that
was here when we bought the house.
I had it crammed full of anything
bee related.
 I had the perfect border

 But it was time to go and morph into
something a LOT less cluttered
and dated looking!

 So the painting began

 We did keep the red in the ceiling area though.
And of course those,
what do you do with them, pipes.

 I chose Sueded Leather
for the walls. It's a Valspar signature color.
Love this paint!

 Added a new use to be Amanda's makeup mirror.
 Decided to paint it black instead

 Painted the little white lamp black also.
Brought in my TJ Maxx bird plate.

 Hubby made a nice maple bench top.
Purchased these great baskets from
TJ Maxx to store the pool towels and
reading material.

 Brought in the bird pictures
the mate is over the bench.
So this is the end result!
It is much cleaner looking and feeling.
Not much we can do about the darn pipes
without making the room way smaller.
And they're really not that bad!
Way more grown-up updated feeling!

Then it was on to the cabinet in the room....
It's just a prefab press board cabinet.
Dark and unorganized on the inside.

So I cleared it out and cleaned it up.

Painted it a bright white semi-gloss
for easy cleanup.
Added some baskets for organization.
Purchased from Kohl's clearanced
one BIG basket and one small basket
for $8.90 from $29.99!
And we're finished!

It's funny how a fresh coat of paint and some
major decluttering can make you
Fall in Love with your Home again!
Thanks for taking time out to see my
bathroom transformation...
Next up Mal's bedroom!

  5. Yes, sometimes it is time to go out with the old and in with the new. There are so many beautiful little birdie things out right now too. Can't wait to see the finished product. I am having a giveaway over at my Gloryfeathers blog if you are interested.

  10. Lisa, I love your RE-DO! It's very NOW....which I think by "now" I mean simple and serene....I think so many of us are done with the excess of the 80's and 90's and we are craving a more simple style.
