We’ve been doing a lot of painting the last few months, and I’m pretty excited about this latest one. Here’s what the bathroom looked like yesterday:
The gray/blue splotch was our test paint for the new color.
Looking in from the hallway. Seriously – red trim?? Ugh.
More paint splotches and horrible red trim.
Lots of red and lots of brown.
The previous owner seriously liked brown – she painted the majority of the house with it. I’m not against it or anything, but we’ve been surrounded by brown for a year now, and I am very excited to finally change big portions of it!
Here’s how the bathroom looked tonight:
The lamp is NOT there to stay. It was the only way we could see. :-)
THAT is the reason we needed the lamp. We took everything off the walls. I do mean everything.
No more red trim!!!
It’s going to look brighter once we get the real light fixture put in and pretty decorations on the walls, but we love the contrast between the color (called Sharkfin) and the bright white trim. Not that I have any clue what we’re going to put in there yet, but I’m determined that it will look pretty! Ha! We had just finished painting when I snapped these pictures, so that’s why it looks blotchy in places.
In addition to the red trim, I absolutely cannot figure out why the builders would make the light sit off-center from the sink. It’s so bad that it’s obvious there’s wasn’t a slight miscalculation (at least in person). Come on now – they’re totally messing with my symmetrical tendencies!
We love making the house our own. We’re slowly transforming it, bit by bit, and David and I work great as a team. I am so excited to include Genevieve in projects like this. She’ll love it!
