This picture doesn't do justice to the cave-like feel of this bathroom, but it's the only "before" shot that I have. It didn't take long for me to start going through paint chips to select a new color. I finally decided on Behr's Frost Wind.
Ah...it's like a breath of fresh air!
I love this bathroom now! I painted the entire thing, trim and all, in one day. I used the Behr Premium Plus Ultra for the first time. (This is the one that is a dual paint and primer.) Would you believe that I was able to cover that horrid dark green in only 2 coats? True story. This bathroom is no longer a cave and I could not be more pleased with the light, fresh color.
I still want to recover the boxes on this little shelf.
I found these towels at T.J. Maxx and was thrilled with how they complemented the wall color.
The frames were very inexpensive clearance items. I sprayed them in a glossy black to unify them.
I found the mats on clearance at a craft store. The outer mats were some other color, so I painted them with the wall color.
The prints are all pictures that I took on trips to France.
Do you like my artsy mirror shot here?
It's amazing what a difference a one-gallon can of paint can make! And...this little project has served as a springboard for me to tackle other rooms around the house. I'm looking forward to sharing them here on Handmade Homebody.
