Bathroom MINI makeover

Rick thought I was nuts to want to waste any time on our bathroom since he has plans to completely remodel it soon, but I just HAD to pull that wallpaper down (I know you wanted to do it so bad Traci!!). Well I did, and it was easy as pie. It took me all of 5 min. It just pretty much fell off the wall, and when it did.....
I got a big laugh!! The ocean scene was so detailed, it was a trip. I got so tickled. So I got out the primer and attempted to cover it with one coat, then another, then the basic white paint, and you can still see a tiny bit of the aqua but only if you look real hard. I decided not to do a 4th coat of paint since it is only temporary. I hung a few of my Walter Anderson prints (a FABULOUS artist from my hometown, click HERE to see or purchase his art), and added a simple white rug from Target, and BAM! we have a new bathroom. I was so impressed at what a difference this all made, Rick.....not so much. Not bad for a day's work.
