Master Bath Makeover

Hi all, happy Sunday!
Today I'm here to update you on the Hinson household.
I'll elaborate later but here's the short version.
Joseph played his first games this week.
James is loving life.
Andy's on his seven off.
Thursday he made a man-trip to Mississippi 
and enjoyed the Auburn vs. MSU game.

With life traveling at break neck speed,
I've found therapy in my projects.  
Last week was the garage sale.
This week?
A long overdue master bath makeover.

We've lived here for three years
and for three years this has been my bathroom.
I've seen worse but,
I've also seen better. 
You know how it works.
You buy a new house and your suddenly 
faced with a bazillion decisions.
Needless to say my bathroom was 
way down on the list of priorities.
It was clean and functioning
and for a while, that was enough.

Until this summer when I was designing the boys' room.
That was when I stumbled
across my first Polyvore creation.
I made this about a year ago and totally forgot about it.
Ahh, after finding it,
I knew a bathroom makeover was coming soon.

On Monday I ordered my shower curtain,
the shower curtain.
Thinking it would be next week before it arrived
I bought my paint samples.
I'd no more than got the paint on the walls
when my package from Pottery Barn arrived.
That was all it took.
I decided on the paint color and bought the paint 
all before picking up the kids from school.
I planned to have the first coat of Nantucket Fog
on the wall before Auburn kicked off that night,
but alas, it didn't happen.

So an Auburn victory and a CHS defeat later
this was what greeted me. 
Hello breath of fresh air!

As soon as I had the bathroom put back together
it was time to crown the queen.

I love how the bathroom is relaxing and calm
all with a sweet sunny smile. :)

It still needs the finishing touches
but even as is, I'm in LOVE!
Now I need your thoughts.
Do you think I should paint my cabinets black
like in the inspiration photo?
What type of window treatments should I go with??

Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoy your beautiful Sunday afternoon.
And by all means,
if you've got a project you've been procrastinating 
go tackle it now.
Still need more inspiration?

You'll be SO glad you did. :)

I might do a similar curtain. Still undecided on the cabinets...Thats a tough call.

Beautiful!! I've been seeing SO much yellow around the Internet lately, and I have NO yellow in my house right now. However, there's a first time for everything, and this is GORGEOUS!

I like the mixture of black and white so maybe leave the cabinets white (because that might be less trouble) and buy some black accent pieces! Maybe a black towel rack or black are so creative and talented! Love the new bathroom! I am in love with the shower curtain!!
