Guest Bathroom Makeover....Deployment Project #5

Recently, I gave my guest bath a little makeover. 

I am trying to do away with patterns and multiple colors in my house...going for a more simple, clean, fresh look.

So, I decided it was time I got my hands on my guest bath....

Here it was before....

...and here is the after...

(The shower curtain was $12 at Target. I cut off the bottom, sewed on some burlap and a chocolate colored ribbon to match)

I put up the chair rail and shadow boxes myself. The shadow boxes are pre-made and were purchased at Lowe's. This was VERY easy to do!!!

A plain $3 towel from Wal Mart.... I monogrammed it and sewed on chocolate ribbon on the bottom.
The color is Eddie Bauer's "Limestone" purchased at Lowe's.

I am learning that LESS is better when it comes to home decor....even in a bathroom....

What do you think??

I love this before and after. I found you from the Reinvented blog and since I've been debating about what to do with my bathroom this was great. I love the framing under the chair rail. Thanks for letting me sneak a peak at your ideas.
