Lettered Cottage Guest Bathroom Challenge



Mr. LC's birthday is coming up (June 28...he's turning 35 too!), and since he said he doesn't want any gifts, I've decided to do a low-cost, room re-do for him instead. The room I've chosen to re-do is a room that makes him shudder every time he peers into it. And I say "peers into it" because he would never actually step foot into it. He dislikes it that much. I'll post some "before" photos tomorrow, so that you can see just how bad it really is. (Those with weak stomachs, may not want to visit tomorrow)

And with this particular re-do, I think it's time to mix things up a bit! Since I'm the one who is usually giving out design inspiration, I thought it would be fun to ask you for some this time!
Send me one photo of the bathroom you're most inspired by to LaylaPalmer@aol.com. I'll pick my three favorite photos, and use them as inpiration when re-doing my bathroom. I'll shoot lots of photos and blog about my ideas and techniques all along the way.

Then in about two weeks I'll video tape his reaction to the makeover, and post it here on my blog, so you can see how it all turns out!
Thanks in advance everybody. This is going to be great!

Aw, aren't you the best? :)
I'd show you my fave bathroom, but it's SO not manly. I just posted it on my blog yesterday so if you're interested.
It's all about vintage, clawfoot tub, vintage linens... a mustard orange and red stripe floor... mmmmm.... it's lovely.

Sarah said...

I love when you post pics of your husband, Layla...he's just so cute;)

What a great idea...plus the new bathroom will be like a gift to yourself too... a win win!!

I'll have to scour my inspiration pics for something worthy of submitting. I can't wait to see it, and I'm a little amazed that that you're going to get all this done in just a few weeks!!!

Cheryl said...

Layla, this sounds fun. We get to help you out with inspiration for a change. How sweet of you to do this so your hubby want have to.
Happy Birthday to him!
I will be sending you an email with inspriation later.
