Happy 4th of July!
I finally finished painting our half-bath yesterday and wanted to post a quick photo. I love how the cherry red turned out. It's a happy color! I am not turned on at all by any bathroom towels or sets that I've found. I wanted something FUN and different. So of course....enter Anthropologie. Their dish towels are exactly what I had in mind. So I'm ordering a couple more in red patterns to mix and match in here. I love the one I already have with the birds and the green pom fringe! (you can see the photo closer by clicking on it) Oh....I put some Basic Grey rub-on swirls on the corner of the mirror. They were white, so I just put a little brown chalk ink on my finger and rubbed over them after they were on the mirror. Perfect shade!
Edited: The paint color is Behr's Ruby Ring in satin finish. I had to paint 3-4 coats, letting it dry between coats and I painted first with a tinted primer.
We are headed to my sister's in-laws' home today to celebrate the 4th. We'll be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers, swimming in their pool, jumping on the trampoline, and lighting fireworks. We are taking cream cheese stuffed/bacon-wrapped jalapenos, cornbread casserole, and some Texas beer. Can't wait!
And here is my favorite rendition of the Star Spangled Banner - Whitney Houston at the Superbowl! (I always cry when I hear it)
