Because you can see it from our entry way, I have to worry about clean toilets AND keeping laundry baskets off the floor. I check for toilet paper rolls AND underclothes hanging out of the laundry chute.
I wanted to update the walls, the mirror, the lighting, and have a place to hide all my laundry junk. I also wanted to try a dark color. I fell in love with a curtain I saw last spring from Target. A trusted girlfriend encouraged me to try and paint the room a color from the curtain....my favorite color was best described as a bright pumpkin. I love dark colors, and only a few rooms in my house get enough sun to pull off such a color. The paint is called "fall leaves" and the Lowe's lady actually had to remind me that the color was not returnable. Oh ye of little faith.....
So here it is. I figured the pictures can tell a better story. I do love it. I realize it's different, but.. again. Whose blog are you reading?
And to answer the question of at least two of my family members...No. I will not be changing the color when winter arrives. I'm not that motivated! ...but now that I think of it, I've ALWAYS loved a nice Icy Blue....

Old lighting and mirror. Paint chips were so intimidating!
New lighting (Costco). We're economical (cheap, people)!
Do you like it? Is orange a ridiculous color for a restroom? How about a laundry room?
Happy Friday, friends :)
