There’s just nothing like that new paint smell. Ahhhh. I hate the new car smell, but paint I can handle. We painted the main-level bathroom. We felt like this was just the thing the room needed. Something inside me said, “Silver.” And so it was. I have an unusual infatuation with the color gray. I wanted to find just the right one and ended on this Pittsburg version called “Antique Silver.” Come have a look!
Much deliberation took place. Actually, we just looked at the options and went with our gut. Joe was worried that it wouldn’t match the brown hardware and counter, but this particular shade of silver had some brown tones to it.
After doing this lovely knockdown ceiling treatment, we had half the room finished.
So we mixed her up and got to work on the walls!
Joe did the rolling while I did the edge work.
Fin! Or non?
Making Pretty the Access Points
Joe had a couple accesses in the bathroom that he wanted to make, well, more accessible. Previously, to get to the breaker box or main water shutoff, we needed to unscrew the panels. Joe thought it would be smart to add some cupboard panels instead. I’m all about fashion meeting function.
So we conveniently have two access panels in here. I’ll visually walk you through the cupboards we put over the holes in the wall. Above is Thing One, below is Thing Two.
So that’s it. Granted, it looked great when Joe first moved in, but we had some repainting to do anyway. I think it looks really polished in there. It’s almost like a real guest bathroom!
