What a Gorgeous Bathroom.....





I just had to show you this bathroom... No, it is not mine, but I sure can dream about it! Ha ha, that sounds so funny...dreaming about a bathroom? Oh well, you know me! It is from a local antique shop here in town. They had moved into a new building, the owner is so creative! She had this old "french" print and got the idea to have a million copies of it made! She wallpapered the entire bathroom!
Each copy is pretty large, around 16" x 20". I just can't tell you how wonderful it looks!
You would think, it might be overkill, but it really looks Nice! There is a border going around the top of the room, with word sayings and crown molding above that. Well, I think you get the idea...
I hope this is as inspiring for you as it was for me! I wanted to march right home and do it!
There was only one problem... I would have to sand all the walls from floor to ceiling to get them nice and smooth. Well, it still isn't done, but maybe someday?? I will add it to my 5 year list of projects, that I am staying on top of!
