Not only did I not like it but as you can see this one piece above was applied upside down. For years no-one noticed -- till one day my daughter who was about two and being potty trained asked why the fish were upside down.
Recently, something moved me to tear it down. Maybe it was that one corner that seemed to be lifting.
So now the wallpaper is gone but the walls need work before painting. The adhesive needs to be stripped and rough spots need repairing. I bought some spackling and there it sits in my kitchen waiting for me to get to work while here I sit at my computer looking and looking and looking at more and more pictures and ideas. Did I say this was going to take a while?
The hard part seems to be picking out the right colors to paint the walls and cabinets. You can see I purchased a new shower curtain to help with colors. Of course, if you are familiar with my Etsy shop -- you know I am interested in a beach theme. I've been looking on line -- and looking and looking. I had fun visiting Houzz.com and Pinterest for ideas. Do you know there is an endless supply of ideas and colors on the internet? That can be a bad thing. I found lots of great bathroom photos and pinned them to my "decorating my bathroom" pinterest board. I tried the Sherwin Williams on-line site and after trying to narrow down my choice I went and purchased a sample of Drizzle SW 6479 - Blue Paint Color - Sherwin-Williams I determined the color was too dark and planned to pick up one of the lighter shades. It's Possible Tidewater SW 6477 would be a better choice.

Then just as I thought I had decided, I saw some colors I liked on line at Benjamin Moore Paints. Maybe I should visit the BM store (or maybe not). If you are looking for painting ideas - both the Benjamin Moore and the Sherwin Williams sites have lots of pictures and helpful tools to help you choose from their colors. Pinterest has lots of ideas too. Just be careful - there are so many choices that it's overwhelming, also when I got to the store I realized some colors that I thought would go -- were really too green toned.
As you can see my tile is a almond/lt peachy tone. I wish there was money to replace tile but that's not going to happen. Not sure if I should go with a white, canvas or tan for the cabinets.
I hope I haven't bored you with all my bathroom design decisions. Of course, please share with me any ideas or suggestions for colors or paints. I need all the help I can get.
