Carol sent us an email with photos of her bathroom renovation. She says, "We live in a small old house in a small town outside of Ann Arbor, MI. Our bathroom is a work in progress. We started out with horrible purple floral wall paper and a landlord light strip...

We've added some bead board and plan to extend that around the room. Someday we hope to replace the tiny nearly square tub with a footed tub and the vanity with a repurposed dresser. The hoosier doesn't fit in our kitchen but works great in this bathroom. It's a nice block so that the toilet doesn't really show from the door. The aluminum holders on the wall were used in one of the U of M dorm cafeterias in the steam table. We just screwed them into the wall. Thanks for looking! Carol"

We always love the look of "real" furniture, such as the hoosier cabinet, in bathrooms - a great look and excellent for storage. We think the color of the "blue heaven" walls (to use Carol's term) is just right with the white beadboard.

Thanks to Carol for sharing the photos - good ideas and inspiration for bathroom month!
