I’m still making gradual progress with the bathroom renovation. I’ve put in about 6 or 7 more hours over the last two weekends painting the ceiling and upper walls. To everyone else, it probably looks exactly the same:
But to me it looks AWESOME. No more shiny, glossy, yellow-ass walls!
I used Behr ceiling white, and Sherwin Williams Toque White, both of which I had on hand from other rooms. (I’ve still only spent about $30 total on this project so far.)
Now I really can’t wait to get the sickly pea green color off of the bottom walls. Next week I hope to get through all of the trim painting and lower wall repair. So maybe in two weeks we can get to the fun part.
This is the color I’m thinking about for the lower walls. It’s Sherwin Williams Deep Sea Dive. I’ve had it in mind for a while, but I’m not 100% decided. I definitely want a dark color, but I’m wondering if I should just go for a straight navy blue shade. Deep Sea Dive definitely has a lot of green in it, it’s more of a dark teal. What do you think would look better?
I love lists. Lists lists lists. So much fun to cross things off:
