My Boring Bathroom!

I recently moved into a new apartment and its really so difficult to decorate without the ability to change anything permanent or major like fixtures or wall color.  My project would be so easy if I could paint the walls and change the cabinets and the light fixtures and the mirror and faucets and take down the shower doors…ok well maybe not easy 😉

Yea thats not my bathroom just a little pinterest inspiration I got from a bing.com/images/blackandwhitebathroom search. A girl can dream right?Bthrm3

 

This is my original inspiration. Its not really this right shade of pink but its much closer then most modern pinks which are to put it plainly too pink!

I really like the bathroom, its large and fairly well lite. I just don’t like the boring beige walls and the heinous greige particle board cabinets.  They look so cheap.

I have a vision of a gorgeous Black and Pink Mid-Century retro powder room, which is odd because I am not a pink kinda girl, red is more my speed, or at least orange. Guess my tastes are changing.  But I have found some reds and even purples are making their way into the room now whether they will stay is still in question.

I have a few pieces I am working on and have acquired but have been kinda stuck recently and have made no progress… heres what I have to start with.
