|boooorrriiing renters white with stained wood cupboards|
|you can see the old electric water heater in the lower right;|
it was never operational, so I had the electrician remove it
I had been going around and around on colors, every few months bringing home different paint chips inspired by bathrooms I'd seen online or in magazines. I initially got serious about picking colors last November when break crept up on me and I realized I had some impending student-free daylight hours. Of course I got distracted by other things and before I knew it, November break and Christmas break had come and gone. Fast-forward to the near-end of spring break (yes, this past April. . .) and I decided the time had come.
|there was a piece of trim attached to the wall here for no|
particular reason. and apparently the bathroom was light blue at one point
|or maybe it was yellow?|
I also grabbed some grey paint for the trim. There is a household debate about whether the grey is more lavender then grey which brought the cupboard painting to a halt. And here it is December. And the cupboards are still the stained wood. Eventually I'll get them done, but probably not this winter - I don't like doing that big of a painting job without being able to open windows to lessen the smell of paint. I'm still partial to the grey, and since I have a whole gallon of it, I may as well use it. I can always paint over it, right? I plan to give the hardware the same treatment as the kitchen hardware - a little black matte spray paint and they will be good as new!
|yay! new lights over the sink|
and can we all take a moment to admire my kick-a** shower curtain?
best birthday gift :)
