I have mentioned before how I go about things backwards, I often take the round-about way to get to a solution versus the most logical, straight forward route. This is not restricted to my decorating, but to life in general. I am usually all over the map in my thinking. It is just how I am put together.
But sometimes, even my random routes throw me for a loop. Specifically, I am talking about my bathroom project. The bathroom that has been sporting a big hole since January.
The Hole came out of my curiosity. The curiosity of what was behind the wall and wondering if there was enough room to carve out some additional storage. Clearly there is space that can be added, but that is where I stopped. I had no idea how I was going to go about creating the new storage space and, in fact, had no immediate plans to figure it out. Also, I was at a lack of inspiration for this room, and if I have learned anything (especially with this bathroom) it is not worth going forward until you are inspired! So there it sat.
It sat waiting for any kind of inspiration to come: Inspiration for an over all look, feel, color, idea....Really anything. Well, then I had a spark, a kernel of an idea, a way to keep this room fun for the kids and yet mature enough for guest. It is our main bathroom after all. But I was not completely sure if it would work.
I let the kids pick a color, and surprisingly, they both agreed on one. They both loved a Tiffany Blue-like color. Great, but I wanted the right fabric to help, which I stumbled across in a quilt shop in Minnesota- Yay! (still had no idea how they would look or if I bought enough, but I will worry about that later).
That was how the bathroom project got started, by sheer dumb luck and circumstances. I wish I could tell you it is completed, but, nope, it is still in a half finished state. And, Yes,the hole is still in the wall.
