The bathroom is something I've been wanting to re-do since, oh, the day we moved in. :) The previous owners had painted it yellow...which wouldn't have been so bad except that, well, it just was bad. Too bright a color for too small a space, I think. You walked in and went "whoa, YELLOW!" So last October (yes, you read that right) I did my research, chose my colors, and bought paint and a brand new lovely shower curtain. All of which sat in a corner in the bedroom for the next many, many months.
I am slightly ecstatic to report that our bathroom is no longer YELLOW! :)
One thing the previous owners did was to paint semi-gloss over semi-gloss...with no prep. The result was peeling paint. Lovely. As soon as we tried to sand anything, we'd end up with sheets of paint in our hands.
They also (evidently) super-glued the towel racks to the walls as well as screwing them on. So when we removed them, a good chunk of drywall came too. Christopher patched them up as best he could, and the results actually look pretty good, considering what happened!
Gabe's mom helped paint, and gave me a break from the paint fumes. :)
And...the result! It actually isn't coming out well in the photos on blogger, but the color is now a very pretty, very light blue. I believe it is called "blue rain" and it really does give that impression. I love it.
Also please note our brand new and beautiful towel ring, etc. which match the sink faucet, and the lovely shower curtain (with nary a smidge of yellow in it. :)
