Powder Your Nose, Just a Snippet

We have a little powder bath just off our kitchen and garage entrance.  It's actually a pass-through to the laundry room and it sees a lot of, um, action

Just to give you an idea. 

 Sometime after I painted my new kitchen rug, I got a wild hair and decided that I needed more pattern in my life. Also, I had a lot of left over paint. And why let a perfectly good, only-used-once poster board pattern go to waste?  So I broke it out and went a little wild on a wall of the bathroom.  The same pattern in the same color might be overkill for some people.  Luckily,  not so for me.  It possibly might not even be enough for me.  Take that.

 I kept it kind of reminiscent of wall paper and went floor to ceiling, wall to wall,  even under the mirror and behind the toilet-which was no small feat, let me tell you.  I really like how it accentuates the ceiling height.   I kept it to just one wall because a) I wasn't sure this tiny space could handle it on every wall-maybe if I was  hipper, and b) I'm just a little lazy. Again, I swear the pictures don't do it justice.

 As a side note, the glaring light drives me nuts, but even with the laundry window there is absolutely no natural light here.  This is what I got when I tried to take pics with the lights off:

My  editing skills can't hack that.

Just the same snippet of wall in several angles.  There's no real way to stand back and take a good picture in here, although now I'm realizing I probably could have branched out my photos to show a little more.  Oh well.  Maybe I'll do that again later.   Probably on the same day that I accessorize the rest of it.  Ha.

I may be the only person who will ever really notice or appreciate it, but I don't care. I love it. Its just what this little hallway/pass-through powder needed. It makes me happy every time I change a load of laundry. And that's not just a few times.
