Bathroom Update

Now that school is out for the summer, it is feeling like it's taking an eternity to finish my little cleaning painting project. But really, I guess it's taking me no longer than anything else lately. 

If you follow me on Facebook (Whaaaaa? You didn't know I was on Facebook!! Whatcha waiting for?! Freckle Face Girl)
then you saw my sneak peek.
I've got almost the whole bathroom painted - yay! The little toilet closet is next, but I'm putting off painting it right now, because it's too small to use the roller on a pole, which is my favorite thing. 

I didn't really take a real before picture. Why? I didn't really plan on painting the just sort of happened when I really planned on cleaning. SO, it was a complete dirty mess when I started painting and I certainly was NOT going to advertise that all over the place. I have some dignity. 

Before. Errrr....during.

The original color was Benjamin Moore - and I cannot remember the name of the color at all right now...but it doesn't matter, cuz it was buggin' me and looking dirty and all that other business you tell yourself when you're ready for a new color.

In Progress

The new color is Repose Gray by SW. I used it in my master closet, so I had some left over...which is how everything starts around here. 

And of course, if  you give a girl a paintbrush...she's going to want to paint the vanity. Which I hinted to anyway. So, may as well make good on my hints. 

The box on the wall is an antique table grape box. It's old and rusty and awesome. I had a incredible thrifting/yard sale-ing day last Friday...and this was one of my finds. 

Next up are new light globes and hopefully convincing Mister to cut some wood to frame out that mirror. Because I've proven I can do many things, but miter cuts is NOT one of them.

  1. White is always a good choice! It never fails to give a lasting good impression. By the way, is there a window on the side of your bath tub? It seems very bright in that area. Anyway, add some decors or accessories to your bathroom to give it a little twist.

  2. Yeah. White is always a good shade. Do you plan to keep it plain or do you have a twist brewing in mind? If you'd do it as spontaneous as you did with painting the room, keep in mind to avoid design confusion. The bathroom is a good place to relax; ergo, we should keep it as pleasant an environment as we can. :) Lida @Waddle Exteriors
