I know I'm Doing This Backwards

My bathroom makeover is proceeding in sort of a backwards way.  I know exactly what color scheme I want, but I haven't been able to commit to a color for the walls yet.
I started the project by refinishing the cabinet in the bathroom.  I used Anne Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg.
Next I painted a mirror I had in the closet as I was inspired by a Pierre Deux mirror.  Again I used chalk paint...this time in Old White.  I still wasn't sure what color I wanted on the wall so I decided to go to Home Goods (where else?) and see if there were any accessories that would help me move this project along.  It was a good day at Home Goods.
I found the right size rug with the perfect colors.
I found some awesome towels to add the color I am looking for.
I combined two different hand towels to add more of the colors and feel I am after.
I'm getting rid of my sea of beige and adding color all over the bathroom with new towels in the basket and an actual wastepaper basket in the bathroom.  Don't ask me why we never had one before.  I don't have a good answer.
I even added more color to my freshly painted cabinet.  I had many choices in the color scheme of aqua, chocolate and cream.  I will add some color to the glass jar as well.
The best thing that came out of my trip to Home Goods is that I think I finally settled on a color...Benjamin Moore Glacier Lake.  I'll be going to buy a gallon today.  Hopefully by the end of the weekend, this bathroom will be painted.  Then I can focus on the last touches like artwork.  I'm excited to have a clearer vision for the bathroom.  Let me know what you think.

Have a great day.

I love all your accessories and color choices. Sometimes going at a redo project backwards is the BEST way. The wall color will look gorgeous!

Hi Judy, It seems to be working for you the room looks great. You have many different ways I'm sure to go with paint but I like your choice very much. .and if you change your mind, Hey, it's only a little paint you can do it over. I love oriental rugs in the bathroom. I have 2 matching ones in mine.

Can't wait to see it all with the new wall color. So far, I'm really liking the lift that your new accessories bring to the room.

My biggest recommendation to all of my friends is to buy the sample, paint it on a painter's canvas that is at least 12 x 15 and hang it on the wall. Move it to other walls and live with it for a day or so. The accessories a lovely. I don't think it is backwards at all what you are doing. Enjoy!

Thank you for dropping in and becoming a follower!I like how your bathroom has progressed. Sometimes going at things backward is best when a clear vision doesn't come through right away...seems that is how I tend to function in my decorating endeavors!! LOL! I know I get lots of inspiration from all my blogging friends! You have a new follower too! Hugs!
