This room started out with an animal print border as well - this time a bath tub theme!
We ripped out the peeling fiberglass surround, linoleum and laminate flooring, and plastic fixtures and replaced them with subway and hex tile and a new shiny chrome faucet, handle, and showerhead.
After the bones of the room were complete, we started to focus on the decor. I came up with an idea board for the space:

And added a few finishing touches:
Still to do:
- A few pieces of trim still need to be installed
- More art
- Some sort of window treatment
- A rug?

Here's to more steady progress in 2012!
