Oh, that bathroom

In a nice bit of procrastination, this week we picked up on remodeling the bathroom that we abandoned nineteen months ago. That’s the thing about having a baby; suddenly you’ve got time to work, time to take care of the baby, and that’s about it. So if you’re trying to remodel your house, you’re not going to get a lot done. That’s why our master bathroom has been without a sink, toilet, or floor for over a year and a half now.

The drywall work was done, but there was no paint.

The first step was painting. The problem was that those tiny little swatches you get at Home Depot don’t give you much of an idea what the color is actually going to look like when it’s on the wall. So, of course, I painted the whole room, and now we’re not happy with the color, so we’re going to have to get more paint in a different shade of blue and repaint the whole thing.

The interim paint color. Just the wrong shade of blue.

Figures, doesn’t it? I’ll get back to you when we’re happier with the color.

    Ever Onward. Here is a tip. Paint it a warm color. Blue will make mama look unhealthy, regardless of the lighting.

    and if she feels bad, this rolls downhill and yes you are at the bottom of the slope.

    Paint it white, a little darker shade than the tub surround. makes it look cleaner, and the room will be brighter.

    If you are using one of those multi light fixtures above the vanity get some of those Phillips ‘Natural’ bulbs and experiment with on or two instead of all soft white bulbs.

    It will make she who must be obeyed feel better.
