One room down...way too many to go!

So, we have now officially lived in our house for just over six months. As of last week, we still did not have one room in our house completely finished. I mean, we did have that whole wedding thing taking up a lot of our time, but all of the blame can't be placed there. The main reason that nothing has gotten finished is that I am the absolute most undecided person on the face of the planet. I am terrified to go through the hassle and work of painting a room and then hating it when it is finished. (Don't worry, this has already happened in our kitchen... and Ryan is just THRILLED at the prospect of repainting the whole kitchen!). This is also the reason that I refused to buy my wedding dress until the 11th hour, because otherwise I knew my mind would change.

But back to the finally finished room. I got this awesome monogrammed shower curtain as a Christmas gift from my sister last year, and I basically wanted to build the entire room around that curtain. Here are some pictures of the finished product:


The most expensive thing in this room is the shower curtain. I have to REALLY love something to buy it when it isn't on sale or when I don't have a coupon! I made the tiles on the wall because I really needed a splash of color on the dark walls. Those tiles are my mini rendition of the famous Ballard wall tiles that you see everywhere lately. My version cost $5 and took about 30 minutes to make. I will gladly do a tutorial if anyone is interested! I also rotate out my Domino Magazine (R.I.P.) collection in the magazine basket because they will never get old or outdated!

I would LOVE it if you wrote up a tutorial on how you made your bathroom wall tiles. I see them in almost every store, but they're always so much $$$! Can't wait to see how they were made :)
