Love That Blue

I have been working on my spare bathroom trying to lighten it up a bit.  I had a burgundy, yellow, and cream striped shower curtain in there, which I really liked when I put it in but it was time for a change.  I found this little hand towel hanger in a shop in Salt Lake at that time.  I really liked it and it fit the color scheme perfectly.  Well time marchs on and I have been wanting to put some aqua blue, green, and tan in there.  I found "Thee" shower curtain  at Kolh's that I love!  Later I found the rug that matches the shower curtains color, yeahhh!  So I decided to give this little towel hanger an update as well.  I bought one of those sample sized cans of paint (which I love, that Lowe's offers, because usually that's the paint I need).

I primed it to cover up the dark burgundy and then tried a cream color on it.  It was too light for my walls so I then went for blue but, Oops, wrong color of blue.  It really looked bad.  Back to Lowe's for the right color.

I love the new color, it's just what I wanted.  Since the bathroom is used mostly by my grand kids I decided to make it a little whimsical.  The saying says "Just when a caterpillar thinks the world is over, he turns into a butterfly".  They love it, so I have received the highest stamp of approval as possible.
