We consider ourselves pretty fortunate to have two bathrooms in our house. Our first home only featured one, our second had three, our rental had one, and now we find ourselves with two. With three people vying to get ready in the mornings, having multiple showers/baths/etc. has become a necessity. That being said, the upstairs bathroom in our home was a tad dated (read: 80′s!) when we moved in. It featured the hollywood lights-style fixture, big vanity mirror, and boheameth of a vanity.
First things first, the mirror and light fixture had to go. I promptly put Aaron on the task and breathed a sigh of relief to have them tossed to the curb. The paint color on the walls was my next issue to remedy. It’s not that I didn’t like the color, but it was chipping in places, I didn’t know the brand or color so I could touch up, and it made the room feel small and dark. Solution? Paint!
I decided to use the same off-white (Valspar Honeymilk) as I used in the front entry. When this was done, there was still a major problem/eyesore that had to be dealt with. The vanity.
I didn’t feel like going to purchase more paint so opted to use random colors I already had on hand for a bohemian feel. After applying two coats and allowing ample time for drying, I scuffed up the finish for a distressed look.
The only thing left to do now is to get Aaron to make my driftwood drawer pulls and I will consider this room much improved. Nothing like a little paint to transform a room!
