Check out my before and after! I added darker colors for a stunning contrast.
My bathroom suffered from “beigness.” When I was offered the opportunity to redecorate my bathroom with Better Homes & Gardens products from Wal-Mart I jumped at the chance!
If you know me, you know I don’t enjoy shopping at Wal-Mart. But thankfully, I can shop online. I don’t mind that store as a whole, it is the parking lot, massive store that takes 5 days to walk through and the long lines (and frustrating clerks) that keep me away. I shopped online for all of the products you see and really enjoyed the “site to store free shipping” option. I sent somebody to pick up those items, I didn’t have to worry about him getting the wrong ones.
This is one of my before photos. Yes, we have a small bathroom but that is no excuse for not decorating it in a way that is cheery and fun. I love the blue walls – at least with that paint I was trying to invoke life into the small space. But when I chose the carpets or rugs, towels and curtain, I mistakenly thought going “light” would be a nice contrast to the bright blue walls. Nope, all it did was make the room pretty boring.
The biggest thing in our bathroom is the tub, so picking a shower curtain that had some personality was important to me. Isn’t it amazing what a difference that one change made? I also put up matching towels, hand towels, wash clothes, and added a holder for our toothbrushes to keep them organized and pretty. And the rugs like these carpets vintage wool rugs are a huge change too! I love the new rugs! But when is it time to clean your carpet and when should you simply replace it?

thank you!! Good luck! It is not a votes thing, thank goodness!
We gave our bathroom a much needed makeover at the end of July, so I’m not entering, but I do love Better Homes & Gardens products. I just used some of their products in my laundry room makeover last week!
Annie @ Mama Dweeb says
OMG I saw that post! I loved the decorative boxes you used! I really should link to you so people can see the products in use in another room. Thanks Whitney!
Samantha @ Mama Notes says
OK I think your bathroom was beautiful before but that curtain really does make it look even better.
Liz@Toddler Beds says
The curtain does make a big difference just from the picture above. Before, it was too plain and the “beigness” of it all doesn’t make it stand out. Now, it looks better because there is a darker shade to magnify things a bit with the color contrast.
