Well it’s out with the old bathroom…. and in with the new bathroom… Can you believe the difference?? I have been living with the change for about a month now and really love it. Everyone who sees it says wow! I know I love it and that’s what is most important. Sadly the bathroom is so small I can’t get in to take lots of different angles for a real show and tell. I think the two pictures that I do have tell it all though…frumpy and kiddish to a great farmhouse bathroom. I was really nervous about this whole bathroom redo because I am absolutely AWFUL at making decisions. In fact, I told our daughter Kalissa I was going to town to pick out paint and asked if she wanted to come with and she said no way Mom. It will take forever. Little did she know that I had already done my homework. I used Glidden® paint’s awesome new program called My Image Inspiration. I took a picture of our bathroom flooring hoping for some inspiration and I got it. I could see the colors that I was aiming for. Armed with that, I headed to the wallpaper store first. Wallpaper in not my favorite, but the walls in the bathroom need it to hide some not so good walls. So I just needed it for half the wall space. Determined to not drive myself crazy with indecision, I walked into the store, grabbed two books that looked most likely, and started paging through. About ten pages into the first book I found something I really loved. I knew I could easily live with it but I finished paging through the book. I swayed…did I really need to look through more books…No! I felt confident with the wallpaper because it matched the color scheme that Glidden paint’s My Image Inspiration had suggested. I didn’t even page through any other books. It was the fastest decorating decision I had ever made. I waited for the wallpaper to come in the mail and then went back to town. Again I was impressed with Glidden paint. There wasn’t chip after chip after chip to choose from. There were just a few, and for people like me who have trouble with decision making, that was perfect. Again I was in and out of the store in no time. Shower curtain selection, curtain selection, soap dispenser, even towel selection was so easy. I felt confident because I had the My Image Inspiration colors in mind. Working in a space that is as small as my bathroom was a bit of a challenge but very do-able. In two days time, I was completely finished with the whole project including wallpaper removal, ceiling painting, tile painting, trim painting and wallpaper application. I was very happy with the paint. I loved the ceiling paint. It goes on pink and dries white. It made ceiling painting a breeze. If you are a regular blog reader, you know that we recently bought a new house and I am going to have to leave this bathroom behind. I won’t be leaving that paint behind though. I think one of the bathrooms in the new house will be sporting some of these same colors…I love it that much.
