Art Gallery Bathroom
An Art Gallery Bathroom… How many people do you know that have an art gallery in their bathroom? None? Well, now you know at least one – me! After showing you our new kitchen, I’m so excited to show you our newly finished Art Gallery Bathroom. Who would have thought that this boring bathroom would become the room I’m most proud of?
From the moment I walked in the house, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
- Black walls.
- Black and white marble floors.
Check. Check. Check.
Rarely do I ever finish a project exactly how I pictured it, but this is the one time I can say it’s exactly how I dreamed it could be.
When I first told my husband about my idea for a black bathroom, he wasn’t completely on board. In fact, I don’t think he took me seriously. I texted him one day while he was working to tell him I was painting the bathroom black, and he just said “okay”… When he came home, and walked past it, he called me in from the other room and said “I thought you were joking”…
Silly man, haven’t you learned yet? 🙂
Any way, the bathroom walls were the only thing that changed for quite a long time while we waited for the floors to be finished, and the plumbing to be done. Then we had crown moulding added, and it was finally ready for the art to be hung. I have to admit that it looked kinda like a dungeon in there before it got all dressed up.
Except for about 4 pictures that I recently had to purchase to finish the gallery walls up to the top, we had all the artwork from the other house. You can see in the picture above that I even used the alcohol ink pictures we made a few years ago. That convex ship’s wheel mirror is one of my favorite thrift store finds, but I could never find a place where it could really live until this room.
I’m not going to lie, that magazine rack usually is overflowing with random coffee table type books along with the magazines. And sudoku books… But I’ve been told that people love to just look at all the different pictures while they are in there. 😛
I use the little black trunk to hold extra toilet paper and other items that might be useful in a bathroom, like extra soap, towels and female products. And the little tray on top holds the poo-pourie (love that stuff!) and flushable wet wipes.
I’m hoping and praying that the rest of the house will be exactly as I envision it too, but in the meantime, when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed by the tasks ahead of me, I just need to visit the loo to remind myself that it can, and will, happen.
So, would you paint black walls in your house? How about putting an Art Gallery in your bathroom? Do it! 🙂
If you love how it turned out, I’d be happy if you shared this post with your friends!
