mini bathroom makeover...

the other day, i came home from work (painting), settled in with my computer for a little while, then got a second wind and decided to paint my bathroom. i've actually been wanting to paint it for a little while, but somehow the energy to do it came wednesday evening. it started out like this:

i had painted the walls to this greyish-blue when we first moved in, then freehanded the white vine pattern going up the walls.

i decided to just use some paint i already had, so i grabbed 3 shades of grey that were similar, and mixed those babies up! (the big one was from our bedroom, and the two smaller ones were "oops" paint cans i had picked up. i always pick up oops paint if i think that i can use it, because it's such a great deal!)

i dumped one of the lighter greys into the large grey, and realized that'd definitely be enough for our small bathroom. no need for 3 cans. i mixed them up, and got to work.

i realized that i needed to clean the baseboards in the bathroom. why are they always so dirty in there? ugh! so gross. i swear i clean them everytime i clean the bathroom.

  7. would love to see what you do. I've been thinking of painting our powder room charcoal but wanted some feature to it aswell... unsure of what though. So looking forward to what you come up with.

  9. Great way to use up old paint! The color looks dark in the pictures which I think will be super cool. I have a navy blue half bath and love it - thinking about doing some accent painting though.
