I‘ve been feeling under the weather and haven’t accomplished much theses past 2 days! Yesterday I spent almost all day in bed. Today I did manage to get a few things done, so here’s what’s done so far.
This is BEFORE….I tried a blue color even though I’m not a big fan of blue on walls. I lived with it for a while thinking it would grow on me, but no…..I just couldn’t get into this shade, so………
onto something new.
The shower curtain did have great colors , blues, brown & olive green. We trimmed out all the bath mirrors in our home. It’s just moulding and glue, a really easy project.
Here’s a glimpse of the over the toilet rack. It’s pretty, but was not sturdy at all! The old color, below, was Stream by Duron.
I mentioned in my previous post that I had a bit of a problem while painting. I got paint on the ceiling by accident. I got off as much as I could & thought I’d go over it later since I have all my paints labeled as to where they were used. Wouldn’t you know that I didn’t have any more of that paint! I had to paint the whole ceiling & I used some other paint that I had on hand. No use buying paint just for that when there is so much all ready!
The paint stash where I searched frantically for the ceiling paint. Do you have this much paint?
The new color is still blue, but a green blue. It’s Icing on the Cake, from an old Benjamin Moore paint deck . This color is more my style because it has green in it. This shelf was a yardsale find. It was in bad shape when I bought it. I added trim & paint & voila! It’s real wood, big & heavy, I’m likin it! The huge coral piece & the FAITH piece are also YS finds.
The towel rack, shower rod & tp holder were painted with Sophisticated Finishes in Bronzed black. It took primer & a couple coats but they turned out great. I decided to paint the tp holder where it was because I had such a hard time getting the towel rack back on the wall after I took it off to paint. The vanity knobs will get painted too.

So that’s it so far. It’s still blue, but a blue I love. Choosing paint is hard for me. I always seem to pick a too dark or too deep color. I understand the color wheel & undertones……….paint companies need to make BIGGER paint samples. From all my painting disasters I’ve learned quite a bit……… it’s only paint!
I hope to get sewing tomorrow on the shower curtain & window treatment. I managed to get to a sale at Hancock’s and found some nice fabric.
