Green gecko.

We JD recently painted our bathroom green. It was supposed to be a couple's project, but JD surprised me and it did it while I was at work! Although I love bright, happy walls and have been dying to paint forever. . . it turns out painting isn't as easy or fun as HGTV makes it look. So a BIG thank you goes to the hubby! After a few trips to hardware stores and some disagreements about what greens look good on walls, we finally agreed on Gecko Green by Valspar. It's so happy and we're both super pleased with the results.

I realized after these pictures were taken that they might've looked better without the towel on the toilet or red toilet brush by the tub... but I was too lazy to take the pictures again. Please ignore. :)
And while you're busy ignoring the poor staging, don't mind the burnt out lightbulb. . .

JD and I have been working hard to get our little home in tip top shape for when my family gets here in a week (!!) Although we know they'd love us no matter what our place looks like, it's good motivation to get these projects tackled. More updates and projects in the days to come :)

Ps. I'll do a tutorial for that black framed jewelry holder someday. It was JD's idea and I loveeee it.
