When I painted the bathroom brown I did so with the intention of swapping out the accessories with any number of brown-friendly coordinates, so when I came across this "FOR LIKE EVER" poster I immediately thought that my next bathroom theme would be brown and PINK:
Santa brought it for me for Christmas that year and I searched and searched for the right color pink towels. They had to be bubble gum pink...NOT baby pink. You know how many companies make bubble gum pink towels?
Answer: NOT MANY. It took me a few weeks of intense searching but I finally found them.
And then I got laid off.
Plenty of bathroom redecorating time, right?
Except that girls who've lost their jobs have no business spending money on little things like getting giant, odd-sized posters framed.
So that poor poster sat in my closet for months.
And even after I got a job I was too busy trying to keep my head above water to worry about silly things like bathroom decor. Then FINALLY, when my hero the CPA/Fireman told me I was getting a kick ass tax refund, I decided that my poster (and a couple others I'd accumulated) could finally get bumped up to the top of my priority list.
I picked it up from the framer on Monday (after all that I ended up just getting it mounted on foam core -- I didn't like the look of any of the non-million-dollar frame options -- less is best...and yes, I know that it's not protected from all the dangerous elements in my bathroom [read: excessive amounts of AquaNet], but I have a couple other non-OMGSAFE pieces of art in there and they're FINE, so r-lax Internet!) and last night I took down all the orange and went about the business of sassifying.
Except now that it's mostly done (I still need more art, but I have some cheap ideas) I don't really like it. While the poster's background is bubble gum pink, the orange-red of the design is definitely the bolder, more dominant color and I'm thinking I need to ditch the pink.
Besides, the pink and brown? Is very reminiscent of Baskin Robbins uniforms circa my childhood.
So now I'm on the hunt for the correct orangey-red towels.
