Goodbye, Purple

About 9 years ago, I wanted to paint our bedroom. I wanted Victorian Garnet and Skippy wanted purple. I WON! Then we painted our family room. I wanted a tan color and Skippy wanted purple. I WON! Next was the living room. I wanted eggshell and he wanted....purple. Again, I WON! But then, it was time to repaint the bathroom. I wanted sage green and Skippy wanted purple. As you can see from the next few pics........SKIPPY WON! lol

I have to say at first that I liked it. We had a pretty dragonfly shower curtain with matching shower hooks and bath mat. I accessorized with purple and tan towels that
matched the curtain.

But after awhile, I could no longer see
the dragonflies.
All I could see when I stepped into the bathroom was BARNEY! NOOOOO! lol

I was very thankful that Bean helped me. Even though she only painted a little bit before she ditched me to celebrate her husband's birthday with him. Sheesh.....what's up with that? lol

For my birthday back in February, my sister surprised me with a box full of things for when I painted the bathroom. She was so sweet and gave me a bath
room set in my favorite theme. . . . . OUTHOUSES!

The last time we redid the bathroom it took a few days. Thank the Lord, this time, it has only taken one day so far. All that's left to do is the wood floor! WOO HOO!

I do have to say, that even though I detest painting......I am so glad I did it. I am really happy with the results!

I love it, it is so cute and country looking. Love the shower curtain.

Love it Laura! Such a pretty country look! I like the shower curtain. Wow-it did not take long at all to get it finished! I really dislike painting too.
Enjoy your day.
Blessings and hugs.

It's beautiful! I love the wainscoting on your walls. I do agree, the purple was a bit too Barney-like. LOL!

It's absolutely gorgeous... we've been painting, too. Must be the season.

Love the green much more than the purple! Love the outhouses too!

At first I was in love with the purple until I saw the color you painted it and truly fell in love with it. Well done!
