Before and After: Kid's Bathroom

As another testament to the miracle of paint, here's a before and after of my middle daughter's jack-and-jill bathroom, which connects her new bedroom with the playroom.

Before: Lots of wallpaper and dingy cabinets.

After: Light, bright, and airy, thanks to Benjamin Moore's Barely Teal (which is one shade lighter than the playroom's Jamaican Aqua) on the walls and Atrium White on the cabinets and trim:

Eventually, the countertops and fixtures will need to be updated, but for now, wallpaper removal and fresh paint has brightened the room tremendously.  We finished the space with crisp white bath linens, clean white shades on the three windows, and charming prints from thewheatfield.

From tired to fresh, quite a nice change!
