|Here's our bathroom as it looked before last weekend when I decided to 'get busy' on this bathroom update.|
After doing the cabinets and countertop, I hit the walls with paint. This was a challenge due to the vaulted ceilings.
|Another view of the 'before! On that wall at the end next to the toilet is a black shelf. I didn't get it in any of the photos.|
I lugged the step stool and the ladder into the bathroom and got my paint ready to go. I had painted the lower halves of most of the walls prior to this point. Second coats were completed where needed.... then... I climbed the ladder and simply moved up the walls until I was standing on the rung next to the top to reach the peak of the ceilings.
NOT. MY. FAVORITE. THING. TO. DO!!
|The walls above the 'yellow tile' in the tub/shower are also|
the green like the rest of the room.
Doing a second coat was on my least favorite list of things to do, but... you do what'cha gotta do, right?
The funniest site was probably me on a ladder that was half in and half out of the bathtub.
The strange things one does for home improvement.
While the walls dried, I used a hammered brown spray paint on all the hinges, handles, bath accessories, and light switch plate.
|You can see some of the |
'hammered brown metal' hinges/handles etc.

(The back wall by the toilet it still 'wet paint'.
I don't think that big 'streak' will be there once it dries
On Saturday morning I began reassembling the hinges, doors, handles, drawers, accessories, etc then began removing the plastic and painters tape around the sink. Let's just say that step could have gone better. Fortunately the caulk will cover the tape I couldn't get out of the resin. LOL!
I also put the cabinet on the countertop and filled it.

I vacuumed the floors; put down the runners to keep the floors a bit warmer until we put down our flooring; then took a few pics.
I still need to scorch the barn wood boards with a torch and stain them; then cut and hang them. Then I SHOULD take down the dated light fixture and paint it until it's replaced and do the same to the faucets. But.... at this point, the barn wood frame and flooring would make me So... SO.... HAPPY!
Eventually I may also tackle painting the lovely yellow tile, but... again, for now... I"m thrilled with how it's turned out.
It'll be nice that the girls can use their bathroom again too.
Leave me a comment and tell me what you think. What would you add? Or change? What would you do to the faucets or the light fixture? Do you think it is it fine as is?
|The sinks/cabinets/countertop all 'finished' except for caulking around the sinks, wall, and mirror.|
And of course minus the barn wood frame around the mirror -- I really can't wait to see how that looks.
