What I’ve Been Up To – Powder Room

So, I’ve been wanting to paint the powder room for quite some time now, but have kept in on the back burner until some of the major projects have been taken care of (painting trim, new doors, etc). I finally tackled it when I needed a break from painting all of the windows. Which now that I think about it, I totally had a nightmare last night that all of our windows needed to be replaced because they were all rotting out, and there were like 5 in. gaps between the windows and the walls! Eeeeek!!! Hmmm… wonder what a dream expert would have to say about that. Anyways, I’ve always wanted to paint stripes and thought this would be the perfect place to do it. I freaked out a little bit at first thinking I had made a mistake, but it’s a good thing I decided to just finish it up because I love it! Turns out Izzy loves it too. She walked in, gasped and said, “pretty!”. Totally made my day 🙂

BTW – The first few after pictures make the paint look really weird and yellowy (totally a word – hehe). The color shows up well in the last one, although, the streaks in the mirror drive me up the wall!
