My bathroom re-do, re-do!

This bathroom has been a long time coming. After spending a whole afternoon painting my guest bathroom, and finally realizing that the nasty ugly brown color that was showing up on my walls was actually going to stay that nasty ugly brown color...I just felt like throwing my hands in the air and giving up. I did something like that, cause my bathroom stayed this disgustingly poopy orange brown color for about 3 months. Gross.

I promise I had a vision. This was definately not it!

I was going for a beachy look, but I guess I was smokin' something when I picked this color out. I think the lighting in my bathroom made it look so nasty.

To make a long story short, I finally got the motivation after that huge let-down, to start over. I'm so glad I did cause it turned out to be EXACTLY what I was looking for.
(Ignore my nastiness in the mirror)

I love my "swim" sign. It is super cute! I wish that I could say, that I made it but I didn't. I am going to try and make one sort of like it that says "beach" on it. Or something like that. So we'll see how that goes!

I still need to find something to put on the second shelf of my towel rack! I was going to put my cute picture frame there but it didn't fit! Sea shells will do for now!
Let me know what you think!
As for me...I love it! It's my favorite room in the house!
