The Bland Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Well, the bathroom is finally made over! And to say it’s brighter and livelier would be an understatement.
Let’s look back at the before photo.

The owners’ sand color didn’t work with our existing gold shower curtain. And with a neutral basket, flowers, and picture, the colors were all very boring. The rest of the home has great colors, from grays to dusty blues, so the sandy bathroom looked neglected and sad.
I found the shower curtain that I loved at Target and used the Chip It! tool to find the perfect paint color to spruce up the bathroom. Of all the colors that were “chipped,” I liked the yellow the best. It was bright and definitely bold enough for a small room like a bathroom.
And so painting began. There was lots of tape and detailing, but the paint went on nicely. My husband and I had plenty of laughs trying to get around each other in there. And after two coats, we were left with a bright little bathroom!

See how the yellow walls pick up the yellow in the shower curtain? That’s exactly what I wanted to happen.
I kept the towels white so as to not have too many colors going on in one small room.

I also stuck with neutral and light accessories. The shower curtain faces the doorway, so that acts as “art.” It’s a busy enough pattern that I didn’t need to fill the walls with coordinating artwork. I did need to fill in the space between the mirrors and the toilet, so I went with a tall vase with some big flowers.
Slipping a little placemat on the top of the toilet is another way to ground the items without using a basket (like I had done before).

A lot of the accessories came from World Market, one of my favorite stores. The hand towel holder came from Target, as well as the towel it’s holding!
I’m so glad that we brightened up this bathroom!

    I’d really like to redo my mother’s bedroom. The walls had suffered some water damage, so that needs to be be repaired. They are also overdue for a coat of paint, and she could use some new furniture. My mother spends so much of her life doing things for others, but she rarely takes the time to do things for herself. Having a budget to redo her room would be great for her.

    I’ve dabbled with Chip It! before and love how it pulls the colors from photos to create a cohesive look. You can contact me here: jlizettg (at) gmail (dot) com

    I am in the planning process for an office re-do and would so love a little help! I haven’t tried “Chip it” just yet as I am still deciding on the decor. My vision at the moment…striped walls with splashes of color throughout the room (this would be quite a courageous move for this “beige” girl). By the way…love the bathroom update!

    That shower curtain is gorgeous! I would love to re-do my daughters bedroom. I would like it to be something not to child like but kind of something in between; something she can grow into it. She is only 4 but I think I can find something that would work with her favorite color green! :) jdaviaux03(at)yahoo(dot)com

    You’re right, the bathroom looks so bright and cheerful now! We’ve already redone most of our house during our year long remodel, but I have yet to touch my office – and so would love to use chip-it to find a fun yet coordinating color for that room.

    I would love to be able to redo my little brothers room. Although I have my own place, his room is fairly bland for a 11 year old boy. He moved into a new house and then got diagnosed with Fanconi Anemia and had a bone marrow transplant a year ago. I would love to surprise him and using Chip It to match his posters and Make a Wish pictures!

    I have too many rooms that need to be done but I’m thinking my son’s bathroom really needs a makeover first even though he’s leaving for college in the fall, its kinda grody. [Not because he's dirty but from the previous owners and their lack of doing anything with it]

    I would love to redo my kitchen. It’s a color left behind from the previous owners, and it’s not bright enough to be exciting, but not pale enough to be a neutral, so I just feel STUCK in between and haven’t known where to go with it since moving in!

    Love your new bathroom! Our half-bath is a delicious dark gold, and I would swear it’s part of the reason I bought the house! :)

    In an instant, we’d be greedy and pick our bedroom. I guess I made the “mistake” of painting our entire house brown because the outside is brown and we have dark wood trim and doors. I really wanted gray, but I feel like we can’t do the gray because of the dark stuff. And then after all this paint talk (thanks, Kate) we painted the living room and hallway blue (still can’t do gray, we have this brown/yellow brick fireplace). It looks amazing. So now we want to repaint everything–the kitchen is spared, I believe. Of course, I bet (look how I am… sneaky) with that kind of money, we could redo our daughter’s room, PLUS our bedroom. So that’s what we’d do. But we’d do our room first. I have no idea what color. We seriously went to buy containers for our closet organization and came home with $100 of paint. So. We’re spontaneous like that. gondo99@hotmail.com

    By far, the most used room in our house is our fmaily room… and, as you might imagine, with all the time spent in there… it is really showing much wear, and could certainly use a make-over. Thank you for the opportunity to win! Your bathroom looks great! I love the shower curtain you chose!

    I desperately NEED to redo our guest bathroom! The owner’s before us used an arsenal of painting techniques that just dont work. The walls are sponge painted an ugly olive green color and the trim and cabinets are antiqued which really just created an equally ugly green-brown finish. Even the accesories (cabinet knobs, towel holders, etc) are hideous. I also bought a shower curtain that I loved and plan to use it as inspiration for the rest of the room so the Chip It tool will be really useful. Thanks Kate!

    I will be moving away for graduate school and will be renting a room from a great roommate/landlord who is giving me pretty much total freedom in sprucing up the space! The basement room is big, but awkwardly proportioned. It still has cement floors, minimal natural light, and it’s sponge-painted a dreary gray-blue that makes it feel like a cave. I won’t have to pay for the carpeting, but making the space feel cozy and warm will be a challenge for my student-sized budget! I would be absolutely thrilled if I could get help in making this happen!!!

    We moved into our home nearly 5 years ago and have literally painted EVERY WALL because the prior owners’ color choices were so hideous. Now we’re in the process of going back and fixing some hastily-made color choices. I like nearly all of our walls now, but our guest room could use a little bit bolder of a color. I guess I’ll have to go with that room!

    We moved in to our house a year ago and every single room is the same color! All of our rooms need attention here, but the living room takes top priority since that is where our family gathers!

    I can’t even say that I would re-do the master, because that would imply that something is already there. I would love to put the money and paint towards making our master bedroom really special.

    I would really love to redo my closet/craft room. It needs some pizazz big time! I’d love the chance to spice up the wall color, add some better lighting and give the room some character.

    I had a baby almost two months ago. Ms. Addison Jayne. Her room is currently an office/guest bedroom. Totally not baby ready but needs to be soon! She is staying in our room in a bassinet along with her changing table, clothes, diapers, etc. It would be an understatement to say it is a little cramped. It’s a lot cramped! $1200 to makeover our office/guest bedroom into her nursery would be such a blessing!

    I would love to do any room in our tiny apartment! We moved a year and a half ago, and just haven’t had the money/time/etc to do anything to our blank canvas. I think if I have to pick one room though, it would be the kitchen. It’s my favorite room and has the least amount of art and personality.

    Both my kitchen and master bedroom need help. Probably the master bedroom more so because the mustardy-gold walls just don’t go with my plum comforter. And it’s a lot of paint to redo.

    My husband and I have flipped our house that we bought in 2009 with the exception of the master bath. I love the shower curtain, but it’s the only appealing thing about that room! It does have potential. . . This is where the Visa gift card and Sherman Williams “chip it” service come in handy. We would love the opportunity to show off our “Bathroom Makeover” skills on your site, Kate! Please pick us!

    LOVE what you’ve done to that bathroom!!! I’m in the same boat, except with OUR bathroom (not the guest bathroom)… It is just hideous and even as I tried with a new shower curtain, it just needs a COMPLETE re-model, even down to the mirrors and light fixtures…. This is going to be one LONGGGGGG project, but glad to have chip it for when we go to paint now that the ewwwy wallpaper is off! :)

    Your bathroom looks so pretty! I love how the new wall color works with the shower curtain and the pop of black from the frames! I have a finished basement that has absolutely nothing on the walls – it’s completely a blank canvas except for some old furniture that is crying for a makeover. I’ll have to try Chip It to pull it together! Thanks for the chance.

    The bathroom looks great Kate! I really love the happy yellow color that you chose! It definitely brightens things up and seems to fit better with your style :)

    I would absolutely love to re-do my living room and possibly my office! I just moved into a new apartment. While the details are starting to come together, the walls have lots of patches from where the previous renter had hung pictures. (She had pictures on the walls literally from ceiling to floor!!) I’m on a tight budget, so painting has had to wait for now. In the meantime, I’m brainstorming ideas… maybe a nice, soft grey in the living room to make my white couch and teal and green accents pop? :)

    My husband and I were married in June and just moved into our first apartment. We love it but a few rooms still need a little TLC. I am a full time student so money is a little tight, but if I could redo any room it would have to be the master bedroom. It’s pretty empty and isn’t very cozy or inviting. We’d love a place to unwind and relax at the end of the day! My email is hannah(dot)groombridge(at)gmail(dot)com, hannah.groombridge@gmail.com

    This is embarrassing but our master bathroom has sat unused for the 4 years that we’ve lived in our home because my husband and I have not had the time or money to paint it (it is currently dark brown), install a new floor (there is a large gap between the linoleum floor and the shower), and seal the shower due to a micro crack that leaked water straight through to our living room ceiling! We are both full time students in intense graduate school programs, and after we saved up and fixed the crack, we did not get around to doing these repairs that would enable us to use and enjoy this vital room in our house. Winning this giveaway would allow me to completely repair and upgrade our master bathroom complete with paint and accessories!

    I too would like to makeover my bland bathroom! I moved into my apartment last Fall (my first “grown up” home away from my parents :) ) and spent weeks painting and decorating to make it feel like home. By the time I got to the bathroom, I had run out of money and the desire to paint! My main living area looks great with gray and turquoise accent walls, but my little bathroom is still the pukey beige color that it was when I moved in :( I would love to get some new accent pieces and wall art for the bathroom and use the Chip It! tool to find the perfect paint color that does not make me feel nauseous to look at!
