Finally! I have started the long painting process for my home.
I started with the smallest room, the toilet area of the master bath.
Here is a sneak peek.....
And now, for the dreaded "before" photos.
Four years ago I went through a pink and brown phase.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?????
My office, the master bedroom and this room all got painted with this very dark brown.
I can only say that I wanted something cozy, it is sunny ALL THE TIME here in Colorado and being from Vermont I was sick of the brightness of it all.
I'm over it, I want my light colored house back!
I even decided to paint the cabinet, very daring for me. I am always thinking if we ever decide to move I may have just brought our resale value way down. Oh well! I love it here and never want to move!
And now on to the "after" photos. Because this room does not have a window I found it very challenging to show the true colors I used.
I wanted very pale gray for the walls and white for the cabinet.
I love, love, love how this turned out!
I can't wait to decorate it, you know, fluff it up some! Dry paint, dry!
I have a chippy, white board that I would like to paint a word on, any ideas? I would love it to be in French.
I need to repaint the ceiling, the brown had really seeped into the white and I had to cover it up.
It didn't work as you can see so back to Home Depot for some ceiling paint.
I painted the cabinet white and then added some of the gray and distressed it a bit.
I put these on magazines to raise them up but from this angle they still look sunken.
I am going to have to touch up the cabinet a bit because the sand paper took off more paint then I wanted.
TOTALLY the sand papers fault, it wasn't because the paint wasn't dry yet. :)
I even painted and distressed my mirror. This mirror has moved with me many times.
It's one of those "skinny" mirrors. You know what I mean, right? It makes you look a little taller and slimmer then you really are.
I LOVE IT.
Wouldn't trade it in for a regular mirror, no way!
It puts that extra skip in my step every day!
I am so excited to finally be starting this whole painting process, I hope to be doing a lot of this over the winter.
