Painting on a Whim

So our main guest bathroom has been sitting untouched for a while.  Meaning that there were tons of extra nail holes in the wall, not to mention various stains and smudges and general yuck.

I decided I needed to change that this weekend, and I wanted to change it immediately (and for free).  Enter the extra paint from our downstairs bathroom.  It wasn’t exactly the color I wanted for the upstairs bathroom, but it was in the right color family–the family called “tone down the avocado bathtub and toilet.”

So, with leftover paint and a few hours, we went from dirty, tired walls to a fresh blue bathroom.

Ta da!  I even kind of like it now, avocado and all.

The artwork ties in the fabulously 70’s countertop.  Which makes for a very happy painter.

The gold frame even looks nice next to all of that fresh blue paint.  Yay!  Three cheers for leftover paint and a free afternoon!  Three cheers for a bathroom that is no longer yucky!!

P.S.  Found a before picture somewhere on the vast interwebs, so for the sake of comparison:

  1. Love the yellow with the paint colour, but did you mean to have all the pics sideways? An artistic bent, perhaps?

    1. While I would love to be that artsy, I think it’s a technical glitch. They’re showing up the “right” direction on my screen, but if I click through, they’re sideways as you said. Not sure how to fix it, since they’re show up correctly at my end. Sorry for the krink in your neck!

      1. Haha gotta love technology! And they were worth the krink 😉

    I just did this a few weekends ago, I love having a nicer looking bathroom.

    1. Yes, I found myself just hanging out in the doorway of the bathroom last night. Weird behavior for sure, but it’s such a nice change to want to see that room!
