Half Bath Changes

The other day I was in the half bath and I just so happened to look up.
When I looked up this is what I saw. Can you see it? It is a shadow around the air vent! At first I started freaking thinking maybe the ceiling was damp from a leak  somewhere but after climbing up on the ladder I found out it was just that the ceiling was faded.
I knew that the shadow would bug me each and every time I went in there so I decided to paint the ceiling. First I tried Duck Egg and though I love the color it made the bathroom really dark. The entire reason the half bath got a semi remodel this past winter was because I was tired of how dark it was in the space seeing as there is no natural light.
After a few more attempts at mixing some blues and some grays and Littliest popping in every now and then telling me he preferred the white ceiling I finally mixed up a grey I liked. 
Unless you look at the before pic where you can still see some of the white showing on the ceiling before I cut it in you probably would not even notice that the ceiling is gray. I notice though and that is all that really matters!;)
After I painted the ceiling I decided to change things up on the shelves.
I brought in my vintage blue seltzer bottle that I purchased a few months back at The Houston Urban Market. I have always admired vintage seltzer bottles so I was super excited to finally find one of my own.
The cows were bumped up to the top shelf as well as the little clock from The Hubster's grandmother.
I brought in a few treasures that my friend Brenda gave to me. 
I had been trying to find the perfect spot for the wood bead rosary. 

I purchased this small boxwood wreath from Holly Mathis at The Houston Urban Market as well. I was thinking of getting two and had two in my hands but at the last minute put it back. I could have kicked myself when I got home and had the perfect spot for two. Oh well, till I find another one it looks perfect right here. 

It is always so funny how one change leads to another and another and another.

  13. I'm sorry, I had a small laugh at your expense...when you said "It would bug me"....cuz I'm the same way. We had some snow damming that happened on our old roof a couple of years ago, and it damaged the living room ceiling....its a huge dark shadow and it keeps me up at night because no one wants to help me repaint our 20 x 30 LR ceiling....LOL

    Love the color you chose and the tweaks you did. The shutters and seltzer bottle are my favorite!

  15. I love Duck Egg, too, Pamela, but I could never do the bathroom ceilings here that color, especially with no windows in these bathrooms. Love how the grey looks. Your shelves look great and it's always nice to fluff things up even in the bathroom.

  18. we just had our downstairs living room/ kitchen ceiling painted, due to the fact that a couple of months ago I left the bath tub running upstairs and got distracted by something else and so ended up with a flood through the ceiling vents and water stains. We tried to touch up the paint ourselves but of course all ceiling whites are slightly different, so we ended up getting it done professionally. Glad you didn't have a water leak like that.
    Your little bathroom looks so pretty!

  20. I love the new gray ceiling and if I was in there I would notice. I got three sizes of these same wreaths from Decor Steals and cut away the ribbon so I could improve upon it. But they are so cool so maybe you can get it through Decor Steals.

  24. I'm amazed, I have to say. Really hardly at any time do I experience a site that's the two educative and entertaining, and allow me tell you, you might have strike the nail on the head. Your concept is fantastic the issue is anything that not ample men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my find for anything referring to this.
