Bathroom reno stage #1 part #2

The theme for my old bathroom was out houses which I still love the idea of but I wanted to switch things up. I am going to save my out house stuff incase we get another house with a 2nd bathroom (which is kinda in the plans in the next year or so). The new theme is just white, black & gray with just a little tiny, tiny pop of red. My husband and I have always loved Ansel Adams, but he is a bit out of our price range LOL I definalty wanted a nature feel to the room , we found a really cool big canvas print of a broken up wooden dock for the big wall, I am excitted to see it up. Then I found a cute little 5x7 black and white pic of an old claw tub with just a little red border, for little wall by light switch. For above the mirror,I bought a black and gray wall sticker that is a quote about being yourself and has a small owl and some branches,which was an awesome deal for only .99 cents! I bought a red towel to hang for my pop of red to go with the red in the border of the tub pic. The picture above I put together and had printed out 8x10 I think it is going to go on the wall between the big over the sink mirror and the over the toilet cabinet we are putting up. All the pics in the collage I took and most are from one of our favorite places to visit and even lived there once which is about three hundred miles north of where we live. Oh and the quote with the collage is from Shakespeare... luv him. I got the prettiest shower curtain it is black with white vines and leafs, black toilet seat cover, rugs and trash can. I found the handiest shower curtain liner, it is clear plastic and has mesh pockest of various sizes on the inside of it for storage, whoever thought that up is great, lol I get happy about lil things! The walls will be a medium gray, not to dark not to light. Which the tile that surrounds the tub and shower are gray bordered by thinner black tiles. The hardware is all new and white and chrome and we have a black and clear storage unit that has replaced the vanity now that we have a pedastol sink. We also got a new chrome light fixture which is very pretty. We even are doing the small stuff like, new towel bars, new toilet paper holder (which I still need to pick one up) and new switches and switch plates. In place of the old medicine cabinet we have a big mirror with a white frame, which was a freebie from the nieghbor that she was going to throw away and there is nothing wrong with it, thank you very much :) and we bought a white cabinet and shelf unit for storage to go above the toilet. I helped pick out the accessories and the hubby picked out the hardware, I think we did a good job and cant wait to see it all come together! I know this is a tease with so little pictures LOL but I'm working on building your anticipation LOL More pitures will come soon I promise......
