I can’t hold out any longer on showing you my purple board & batten bathroom. I am absolutely over the moon with how it turned out. I took a huge risk on painting it purple and I couldn’t be more pleased! It is bold – but the cream board & batten softens the color and they look awesome together. The shower curtain was perfection. I looked at about ten different stores before I landed on this beauty.
I also ended up painting my bathroom mirror the same cream color as the board and batten. I left the vanity black. I am glad I did. I like the contrast of it against all the cream.
I added a new towel ring and purchased some new hand towels.
I still have to spray paint the door knobs but I will do that before we go on vacation in May so it has some time to cure.
Click here if you missed my post on the interchangeable faucet words. I totally smile every time I wash my hands.
I replaced the Hollywood light bar with a new modern light fixture I found at Lowes.

Thank you to my dear friend Annie for taking pictures. It is so hard to photograph a bathroom with no natural light. You rock!
