Happy First Day of Fall, friends!
We had glorious weather over the weekend and ended with my favorite way to spend
a Sunday ~ a family get-together to celebrate September birthdays, eat, and watch football.
I also fit in time to finish up our dark moody bathroom, I'm loving the warm, cozy vibe
for fall and winter.
I've been smitten with Behr's Mined Coal, charcoal colored paint, since using it in one of
my all-time favorite makeovers, Detail Boy's bedroom redo. I found some leftover, so I
went with it on a whim one day. I envisioned a quick afternoon paint job, but after getting
the first coat on I noticed the tape lines from the previous stripes were visible, so I had to
go back and sand them all down...ugh!
Awhile back I found this lion's head door knocker at Homegoods, I thought it would be
a unique towel ring, and added some gold gilding to the ring. Of course, a new towel
ring calls for a new towel, a rich color with stripes and tassels, yes please. They have
a great collection at World Market right now.
On the opposite side of our DIY dresser turned vanity I hung one of my simply framed
flamingo prints. It had been in the dining room but made its way back to the bathroom
to change things up.
I still love our Hampton Bay Swing Arm wall sconces from Home Depot.
I gave them a custom look with a simple narrow gross grain ribbon in dark charcoal
when we first got them. They give off a beautiful glow in the evening.
As you can tell, our painted vanity and painted fixtures are still holding up great after
a year and a half.
More fall tweaking is on the way, are you in the mood for any changes yet?
