Blue Monday - Blue Bath

It's Blue Monday! To participate: just click here for BLUE MONDAY INSTRUCTIONS or check out the instructions in my sidebar.

Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links.

We are in our new home and because of the hours and hours of help from our wonderful children and grandchildren, we are "up and functioning." (Left to our own devices, Johnny and I would have needed months to get this far!)

We still have plenty to do, but the big push is over.

In our new master bath, we've used two colors from Sherwin Williams. One is 6115 Totally Tan, and the accent wall is 6478 Watery, an aqua blue! That is a temporary curtain you see covering the window. Remember, we only moved in Thursday.

One bedroom wall and the connecting hallway is the same 6478 Watery while the other three bedroom walls are the same 6115 Totally Tan. Because it's Blue Monday, I'm showing you much more of the 6478 Watery.

I'm including this picture so that you can see the arches that lead into the master bath. The doors on either side are closets.

Happy Blue Monday!

Thank you for sharing your new home with us...I'm looking forward to seeing more!!!

Also, thank you so much for hosting Blue Monday! Its been awhile since I've participated...mainly because I'm short on the color blue! Hehe! But I really do appreciate you, Sally...I know that it must be difficult juggling all that you have on your plate right now...and to continue to maintain this fun filled Tuesday party for us...well, it's so sweet of you!!!

And...somehow I just KNEW you would have some blue walls around!!

Oooh, I love that "Watery" color. I would have been tempted to do the whole house in that! It was really nice of your children and grandchildren to help out, but then I guess that's what children and grandchildren are for!

Shirl said...

Hi Sally, stopping by to wish you a Merry Christmas in your new home. Our school still calls it Christmas Break! I guess I've had the news on too much lately and mis-spoke calling it Winter Break. Must be careful about that, it can rub of easily! LOL
Christmas Blessing to you and your!
