I didn't take true before photos because I'm a bad blogger.
BUT? Here is a photo after a coat of primer is on the trim.
There used to be a wood blind with black ladder tape. I think that was one of mine and Zuddy's many early marital disagreements because I spent $200 on a bathroom blind and that was a lot of money for us back then.....actually, it still kind of is. But I know better now. I'm going to go to Lowe's and get some bamboo shades this time. I got some for the kitchen and I love them! Plus, did you know that you can get them cut to order? That saves a lot of money for us because all of our windows are special-order sizes.
A word about this room....we are dying to gut it, but we don't have another bathroom and neither of us can imagine having it under construction without a backup bathroom. And given our track record of finishing our home projects.......let's just say it: we aren't Young House Love over here. So.....facelift it is. But it's kind of like putting lipstick on a pig because of the walls. You see, the previous owner did a DIY stucco job. We once had a drywall guy working on our attic bedroom and he very accurately said that it looked like he gave his 5 year old a quarter to stucco our bathroom for us. Here's a photo where you can kind of see it:
So this is my latest project. I started it in October and then had to start my part time job, so It's waiting for me to finish it. Here's what I have left to do:
- Prime and paint the vanity (deep Navy blue, I think).
- Prime and paint the medicine cabinet (Behr Swiss Coffee, like the trim)
- Paint the walls (Valspar Sesame, like the walls in the hallway)
- New bamboo roman shades.
- New cabinet hardware (not sure what yet)
- New shower curtain....something plain.
- More plain white towels....I've been getting them at Sam's Club.
