Project Complete

We finally finished painting the downstairs bathroom! It only took me two years to decide what color to paint it. Of course, the project took a lot longer that I thought it would. I even tried to plan in extra time when thinking about how long it would take, but we overshot that too. At least it’s finally finished!

Here is what the bathroom looked like before…


The green square is there because at one point I thought I wanted green. After seeing it on the wall, I was sure I did not want green anymore.

Jesse worked so hard on getting this bathroom done. Didn’t he do a fabulous job??

And here is what the bathroom looks like now…


The hardest, most time consuming part was taping off walls to make sure out strips turned out straight. Even with the level it is very tricky to get the tape down perfectly. They make it look so easy on HGTV.

My inspiration for this bathroom came from this website a friend showed me, Young House Love. They completely re-did every room in their house. I saw the bathroom project and knew that would look great in our bathroom.
