A Beastly Bathroom Makeover

See this beastly wallpaper? We call it the "Elk Wallpaper". It has lived in our master bathroom for about as long as I've been alive. NOT kidding. My year of birth-1976. It's year of being hung-1977. So, I finally put it out of its misery. Well, me and my best friend, Birdie did, anyway. Birdie said it looks like the elk has its behind stuck between the trees and is struggling to free itself. There could be many interpretations of that analogy in a bathroom but for Heaven's sake, let's not go there.

So here is the new "spa like" bathroom. I think it is a vast improvement!


While I was at it, I even cleaned out and organized the linen closet!



Now we can use the facilities in peace without millions of struggling elks staring us down!

Thanks to Birdie for the help and encouragement! She is a life saver because I am an "ideas" person, a starter of projects. She's a finisher, a follow througher! So, thanks Birdie! You rock!

Melissa, at the The Inspired Room, has set up a Mr. Linky with all sorts of projects for inspiration! Go forth and be inspired!

Funny post! I glad you have a finisher. I need one of those. Both hubby & I are starters, but not finishers. Bathroom looks better.

Oh my! What a wonderful difference! That wallpaper was unusual in the extreme. You must save the photo because no one would believe it.
