Question
We moved into a house where a full bath had been added to the basement. The walls are bright yellow, I can't stand it, and I don't have the time (or the fumes) to paint over. I stuck up a nice earth-color shower curtain to help neutralize the yellow, at least a little. Any more suggestions?

Also, we have a deep 14 inch width empty space between the shower and the wall, the height goes from the floor to the ceiling (about 6 feet) (Like a space where two people can squeeze in and stand up.) Any suggestions for this space?

Thanks!

Answer
Hi Ross
Nice to hear from you.
The shower curtain color will help (good call), also I would add lots of mirrors.
Goodwill stores etc will carry them cheaply or Walmart carries different sizes cheap too.
A suggestion is two of those long narrow closet door mirrors hung side by side on the largest wall.
A large towel bar with earth tone towels on it, and lots of pictures.
Once again Goodwill or Walmart is where I'd go.
Get as much wall space covered as you can..it will look good.
The space between shower and wall sounds an ideal spot to slide in a 12 inch wide shelf unit.
This would look great with more of your towels, soaps tissues etc.
Great question. Hope this helps

If you are decorating your home on a budget I can answer most questions about what to look for when buying "good old stuff" at garage sales, yard sales or auctions. I can answer most questions about the refinishing, and repairing of wood items. I have had lots of experience in this area and made lots of mistakes over the years which I may help you avoid.

Experience

I have been haunting auction sales,flea markets etc. for 30 yrs. I have worked extensively at refinishing, and repairing all the old stuff I bring home. I also work for other people, and do repairs and refinishing for several antique stores.
