A whole lot of painting went on today! I had just enough paint for it too! I used up the last of my master bath paint and FINALLY (after over a year) fixed all the light spots! Woo! Well, hopefully all the light spots. I’m sure I’ll inevitably find another somewhere. If I do I’ll just save it/them until I replace the lights in there. I’m sure I’ll need touch up paint for that project, so I’ll buy a little more paint when that time comes.
I also finished phase 1 of the hallway! Hooray! It is fully painted. I call it phase 1 because I’ve decided I need stripes in the hall. Just on the one side and they’re going to be super subtle and shiny. This shiny stripe idea has been a gateway to suddenly being ready to do something to my front bath…
It all started harmlessly as “whatever color I pick for the stripes I should just get a gallon and paint the front bath.” So I vacillated through some color swatches and finally decided to just do the same natural linen that is everywhere else. But since it’s the bath I would opt for semi gloss over eggshell which would result in the awesome subtle shiny stripe idea. Then it turned into “well if I’m going to paint the bath I may as well hurry up and replace that light in there since I should have done that when I first moved it (it has bulb blowing problems). Hmm, and while I’m at it I should just take that mirror down too so I won’t have to re-paint that area in the future. ” And now suddenly I know what light fixture I want in there. I know I want shelves and a smaller framed mirror. I also want a white shower curtain (probably waffle texture) and light blue (or maybe light green depending on the store options) towels. PHEW! The only thing I’m not in a rush to take care of is the faucet.
So while I’m ready to do it all RIGHT NOW, I’m not sure how quick I’ll really get through it. I have a feeling that taping out the stripes is going to take much longer than I want. So maybe I’ll start in the bath first. At least take that mirror down. Hmm.
Pics whenever I’m done!
