White Wednesday

Every Wednesday, Kathleen at Faded Charm has what is called White Wednesday. I have seen lots of participants, and wanted to be one myself, but had a hard time finding white things in my home. I have lots of pink....lots of green...lots of flowers....but not much white.

Then ~~~ I walked into my bathroom ~~~ and there it was! All kinds of white! I don't know why I didn't see it before!

When we first moved into our home, the bathroom was my LEAST favorite room. The cabinets were brown, the tile was bright blue and gray, and the fixtures were country blue (they DID NOT match the tile). Not my idea of pretty! The only thing going for it was the white medicine cabinet mirror, which you will see shortly. Right away the cabinets were painted white with new knobs (oval shaped to match the mirror!). But I didn't know what to do about the tile....so it stayed bright blue and gray.

Eventually I got up the nerve to paint the tile. I've heard of people doing it before, but was scared to try it myself. Now I wish I had done it sooner! It will do, and do well, until we are able to make more permanent changes.

So, without further a-do, here are my White Wednesday photos.

Thanks for stopping in! I will try to open my eyes a little more and participate again!

I am wanting your bath room. Everything in it! The mirror, the toilet paper holder, the shower curtains. Everything! I wonder how long it took you to find it all. It is beautiful.

Your bathroom is really beautiful! I love the white painted tiles and that lovely floral shower curtain! Would you mind telling me how you painted your tiles, and how they are holding up?
