Master Bathroom makeover

The pale blue with lots of brass before bathroom.

We do not have many pictures of this room because after a year of living here we still had not decorated it. Everything was brass and baby blue. But we kept the vanity but took out the brass faucets, brass light fixture and builders mirror.

We painted the room teal. Also ungraded the doors and put on chrome light plates.

This is the start of my English theme showing up in the room.

The before half wall for towels
Now the towel wall with his and her pictures of each of us in a phone booth in London.

The shower stall was plastic and we had it ripped out and tiled along with the floor.
All the brass is gone and this added to the room we had in the shower stall.
Bath tub area before.
I added picture of some of the things we saw while in England. Changed the faucet to chrome and built a faux build it tub front to the tub.

The shelves have sand from Wales, Ireland, rocks from the shores of the English Channel in Dover, and from The English Chann…

Subway Vinyl Art

With the first subway art. I just painted and old out of style wood sign that I had. I used all our birthdays, wedding anniversary date, and all the addresses that we have lived since my husband and I started living together.

This sign is a 24inch by 24inch plywood board. I spray painted black. I put the names of all the places in England that my husband and I visited when we were there last year. It hangs in our London themed master bathroom
This picture was taken before the room was decorated.

Tree branch wall art

This was the very first tree branch wall art. It is a 4ft by 2 ft piece of plywood. I super glued a 2 foot long 1.5 inches wide flat piece of wood to the back so I would have a way to hang it off the wall. I spray painted it then my husband used craft paint and painted the branch shape. Then I glues scrape book flowers on it.

This is our silver one. but was done the same way.

These were made on 2ft by 2ft plywood.

In the dining room I decided to do the branches on canvases instead.
Now our new living room tree branch art work.
This wall makes me crazy because if I center it on the wall then it is off center of the couch. It I center it with the couch it is off centered on the wall. So I feel have 2 is the only answer.
