PROGRESS ON THE BATHROOM

It’s been a while since I gave you a bathroom update. It’s taken me a lot longer than I thought it would to get the painting done. The curing time on the primer was really long and I applied 3 coats. I then applied 3 coats of the paint. I also caulked around the toilet and the sink and in all the grouted areas that had hollowed out around the edges of the wall over time. I am so happy with the way it looks so far!

A piece of advice if you attempt this yourself…..Wear a hat and tuck ALL of your hair into it. I cannot tell you how many times I painted over a piece of hair.. ewww… and you could eat off the floor before I started, it was so clean. It’s also helpful to have soft socks that you put on right before you step in. I figured this out day two after having to rag up little black specks from my bare feet.

The color I chose was White Dove, a color from Benjamin Moore, but I used Behr Paint from Home Depot in a premium semi gloss so that it would be really washable. This color is white but it’s not stark white. There is no glare and it’s very soft and soothing.
I’ve been on the hunt for fabrics and accessories and have a pretty good idea of what I am going to do! Obviously I will be making a sink skirt….I am still iffy on that fabric. The mirror and the light fixture will be replaced, I will have new art work and a new shower curtain! I can’t wait to get it done and show you the final result…
In case you forgot the before picture and all of it’s hideousness….
Here ya go…
Ahhh…it’s so much cleaner and brighter in there!

So what do you think??

  19. Kelli it looks so amazing! You have saved yourself a bundle by doing this yourself and not hiring a contractor to do this work. Plus, you will have so much satisfaction every time you enter this bathroom, knowing you did all this work yourself. Just gorgeous! Want to come visit SF and help me with my bathrooms?
