Bathroom redo

Today I am going to take you on a tour of our small bathroom. This was one of our first redos. For some reason I did not take any before pictures...I know...what was I thinking? This is the sign on the door. I loved it when I saw it. It is iron and is very heavy and primitive looking.
This picture is from me standing in the tub and looking out into the hall. Don't ya love the wall color? Ken (my husband) picked it out and we both love it.
So, really no explanation needed for this one...tis the throne. Check out the little basket on the wall above it. This is where I keep the wash clothes. The toilet paper holder I picked up on and Amish shopping trip.
Across from the potty is where I keep the towels, on top an old crock in a basket. Of course there is a little magazine selection...even my little man likes to read in there. Notice the wainscoting along the wall...it was actually flooring that we got for sale cheap because the store was closing it out. There wasn't enough to actually do a floor, so it became our wall.
My cabinets are one of my favorite things in the bath. This is the only room I have ever decorated and actually liked it. Now if I could continue this one through out the rest of the house I'd be happy.
And finally the shower curtain. Believe it or not this was the hardest thing to pick out. We looked at so many curtains before choosing this one. The only other one I really, really liked, was in the Amish Country and it was 75.00. I could not bring myself to pay that much for a shower curtain, even though it was beautiful...still...
So that is my little bath. Hope you enjoyed the tour. Let me hear what you think...my feelings won't be hurt if you don't care for it.

Fantastic! I love it! My hubby and I bought an old farmhouse 5 years ago, and have been remodeling ever since. We are done with every room except the living and dining rooms. Very cool bathroom! Love the shower curtain, and your magazine area.

Very pretty!!I like the warm color. Seems like our tastes are going back to the 60's with the golds, oranges and greens!
