Did you know it’s March? Maybe it looks like spring where you are but here in Boston there’s still a good foot of snow covering my lawn. Driving to work yesterday morning it was 6 degrees and my poor students haven’t been allowed outside for recess in over a week. I’m in such desperate need of some warmth and sunshine…SO I impulsively booked a trip to Miami for April vacation and it cannot come soon enough. Brian has never been before so I’m excited to introduce him to the madness of South Beach! I guess that means the bikini diet starts now too!
Over the weekend I bit the bullet and started painting the master half-bath. I’ve known for some time exactly how I want this bathroom to look and since I had a half gallon of paint left over from a previous project, I was able to get right to work. You gotta love a project that costs nothing (for now, anyway!).
The bathroom transformed from this terracotta terror…
…to a much softer space
The paint color is Behr’s Reflecting Pool, the same grayish-blue that we used in our main bathroom. I used the paint and primer in one option and I was amazed at how easily the orange walls were covered with just two coats of this paint.
Next step: Remove the white tiles and replace with a fresh glass tile backsplash (yes, it would have been easier to do this first, but whatever!). I’m planning on painting my laminate countertop, which I’ve never attempted before, and then swapping out the sink, faucet and medicine cabinet for something a little more modern. Eventually I’ve got plans to build some drawers for some added storage too.
I’ll keep you updated as I make more progress!
