The Big Reveal

We just finished our redo of the master bath (really, the half-bath and laundry, but part of the master bedroom)

This is a totally DIY project—I designed, and painted, Timmy did the floor and the plumbing/heavy lifting. (muscle power also provided by Joe and David)

The wall color is called Blue Shock. The entire theme came about from a poster with rubber ducks a la Andy Warhol. There are no bubbles anywhere in the room….

New floor (vinyl tile, but the only thing I could find that was exactly what I had in my head as the right stuff.) New toilet, new over toilet cabinet, refinished laminate vanity countertop with new faucet, a painted cabinet and new hardware.

New art: Pop Art ducks, photo and mirror. Old Art: My great aunt Edith painted these ducks and farmhouse.

VERY Happy with the results!
