So, is it French Country or Country French? Do you know? Is there a difference?
I mean, I don’t want to be going around saying the wrong thing! It would be like all those years I was singing along to certain Aerosmith songs and didn’t know (or understand) the lyrics until one day it was pointed out to me that I had been singing them wrong.
How embarrassing! And eye-opening! 😉
Yesterday I shared with you how I made my peace with burlap when I added this Burlap Vanity Skirt to our downstairs bathroom.
And now I’m thrilled to be sharing with you the rest of this space.
It’s come a long way!
Wallpaper in a small, dark room like this can have such a dramatic impact.
Unless it’s ugly. Then it’s dramatic for all the wrong reasons.
This room had very ugly wallpaper in it when we first moved in. When we attempted to take it down, we realized that it had been attached to walls which had never been properly finished and the walls started peeling right along with the ugly wallpaper.
It wasn’t in our budget to have someone come in and re-finish the walls so we did the next best thing. Put up more wallpaper!
I love my yellow damask wallpaper. I know it’s not for everyone but everyone doesn’t live here.
This leads me to my next question for you.
Do you say “damask” with the emphasis on the “da” or the “mask”?
I never know so I tend to alternate between the two. Although if I alternate between the two within the same sentence the person I’m talking with will look at me like I’m a crazy person.
I get that a lot.
Since my daughter still can’t quite reach the faucet a stool is a necessity in this bathroom. I gave a basic white wooden stool a makeover with paint and a darling graphic courtesy of The Graphics Fairy.
It looks very French Country, don’t you think? Or does it look very Country French? 😉
Having a full bathroom downstairs is truly a blessing since we often have guests staying with us and the adjoining office often does double duty as a guest room. The bathroom also connects to a hallway off the family room in a “Jack and Jill” style.
I can never find shower curtains that I really like so I always end up using regular curtains. These were yet another great TJ Maxx find!
Oh wait! See that magazine peeking out from the basket?? Does that answer my first question? I mean, this is my most favorite magazine so shouldn’t I go by what it says?
Now, I’m even more confused!
Oh well, I guess it really doesn’t matter whether it’s Country French or French Country, right?
I mean, when I look back at how far this bathroom has come all that matters is that it doesn’t look like this anymore!
This is the only Before picture I could find of this space. It was taken when we first toured the house.
Can you see the reflection of the rest of the bathroom in the mirror?
I guess whether it’s French Country or Country French isn’t that important after all.
All that matters is that it is much improved and I LOVE it!
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me At the Picket Fence today,
