Bathroom Re-Do

Remember how Knit Knots lived in our great room?
Yeah, he lived in our Master Bathroom too.
Cream walls,
Beige tiles,
White fixtures, you get the idea.
So we decided on a re-do! First we painted a color called "Weimaraner" by Benjamin Moore. We wanted to pull in the greyish tones from the border tile without going too grey, but also tie in with the grey in our bedding. And here is the finished look:
I made these 'His and Hers' chalkboard frames using an 8x10 frame and some black paint. I actually just painted the glass with two coats and put it back in the frame. I'm not sure this would hold up to daily chalkboard use, but I'm not planning to erase the words anytime soon!
In the water closet we put up two shelves for storage, and I added these white vases. These five vases are just plain glass florist vases that we all have in our basements and garages. I spray painted them with high gloss white paint and they took on a great look!
This is the best shot to see that the paint color pulled in the colors in the border tile while remaining greyish enough to tie in with our bedding.
Finally I used a credit to Pottery Barn and bought these three jars to store bathroom necessities.
While the bathroom is still very neutral, I think we warmed it up quite a bit. It makes me happy to get ready in the morning now, and ties in with the bedroom nicely. Eventually I may end up adding some slate blue towels (which is the color of our bedroom) and I'm always on the lookout for new accessories, but for now I'm thrilled with the results!
