Guess what?! All (well almost all) of the painting in our house is DUNZO!!! When I say all, I mean all of the big vertical walls. I still need to paint our 100% empty master closet, a walk-in pantry, the beadboard in the master bathroom, the built-ins in the front bathroom, and a slew of doors; however, all of the rooms that we will be living in are done… except the guest bedroom. We still haven’t touched it. So, I guess I’m not done after all. How about this?! I’m done for now 🙂
I took off on a Monday and had the next Tuesday off for a holiday and got lots of work done. I only had one more room to paint… the master bathroom. Ya’ll… it’s so awesome. If you haven’t seen it in person, you need to get to our house ASAP. It’s locked and all but go to the back, smoosh your face up against the window, and look at how fabulous our master bathroom is becoming.
If you’ll remember, I’ve shared lots of plans, ideas, and before and afters of our master bathroom:
Yeah… so… that’s a lot of posts about one single room. I may have issues 🙂
Anyways, before I got started painting, I had to do a little damage control- aka- clean up the HUGE mess that relocating the bathtub drain created. Here’s just some of the evidence.
Yes, that is basically mud on our newly painted bathroom ceilings. Yay! Ok I wasn’t actually excited (for once) but it was pretty easy to clean up. I just used equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle and some hefty paper towels. Then I cleaned off the walls, dusted the top ledge of the chair rail, and got my paint ready.
I figured since we were using such a dark color on top of the white beadboard (which isn’t painted yet), we would need REALLY crisp lines. So, I got the Frog Tape out and ran it across the top of the chair rail.
If you’ve forgotten, the color that is on top is Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams. It’s so awesome. Love it! And here’s the process…
As I said the other day, this room has no lighting right now… which means these pictures aren’t of great quality. Even so, doesn’t it look SO good?! And the tile in this room is completely done. He (the tile guy) laid it and grouted it all in less than 2 whole days. I can’t wait to show you! J.C. sealed the grout the other day, so now we are ready for a toilet (hallelujah), sink/vanity, and tub. It won’t be too long before we move back in.
So, have you ever been brave enough to use such a dark color in your home? This is a first for us and we’re so glad we went with it. The walls and flooring look amazing together! Talk to you guys and gals soon!
