Purple Board & Batten Bathroom

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.board & batten purple bathroom


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.   Do you love my Dollar Tree birdy?

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.
