I should have taken more before pictures of this farmhouse bathroom.
You see, a marketing genius and I were talking recently and she told me I need “before pictures”.
Why oh why…..didn’t I take more?
Before I lifted a paint brush or a roller or a sander, I should have lifted my camera.
I have a few pictures. They don’t really do the farmhouse bathroom justice.
Why didn’t I zoom in on that shell toilet seat?
Why didn’t I know that I would have a blog and that before pictures were essential?
I mean you barely see the wallpaper….and the sink….and the faux brass towel rings. This is not an accurate representation.
I feel like I have let us all down.
Why didn’t I take more time with the before?
Maybe because I was too focused on the after.
I a wanted clean and light and bright farmhouse bathroom.
So instead of photographing terrible before shots……
…..I painted the walls.
Instead of photographing the process and journey….I hunted high and low for the perfect baskets on clearance and filled them with tea-stained flowers.
Next time I will know.
Next time I won’t be so unbelievably careless.
You can count on me.
NOTE TO SELF: When starting a project…..
Take a plenty of before pictures of the farmhouse bathroom when it looked like this….
…..before it turns into this.
