Clean crisp white bathroom
You know the feeling you get when you climb into bed with fresh sheets? That’s the feeling I have in our bathroom ever since I re-painted it. It’s so fresh, so clean, so crisp….so lovely! And so very bright and white. All the things a small upstairs bathroom should be.
The bathroom was already white, but it wasn’t pretty. When we moved in, the room had white trim and bead board and the upper walls were a pale green I can only describe as Pepto-Bismal’s ugly green cousin. The only way my reflection didn’t look like I was close to being ill was with the lights off! So that was quickly (and hastily) remedied.
I found half a can of white kitchen/bathroom paint in the basement and painted it. Except, it wasn’t the same white as the rest of the room…and there wasn’t enough….leaving me with streaky ceilings and mis-matched whites. But we no longer looked ill, so it was an improvement. A hasty improvement.
Now, with two good coats of my favourite white (Jo Jo Whitewash PF17) on every single surface the room looks SO. MUCH. BETTER. Pictures really don’t do the transformation justice. However, standing in the shower looking up at a perfectly white non-streaky ceiling is pretty much the best thing ever.
A big change was the door. The impact the office door makes made me confident painting the bathroom door would be another great transformation. Because the door is at the end of a long hallway it definitely needed to be brighter, so it was obvious to keep the white theme going. What a difference it makes! The hallway seems brighter, with the door open and closed – which wasn’t the case before. And since I was on a roll (pun intended) I even painted the outside of the tub!
p.s. painting pretty much goes hand in hand with really loud music (for me at least!). So this painting project was brought to you by this:
Disclosure: I am SUPER pumped to part of the 2015 PARA Paints #ParaBlogCrew ! What this means is I receive paint for all my projects.. this is #awesome. I am not financially compensated for my time & all projects, ideas, and awesomeness is my own:)
