Bathroom Plans

Yep... I'm going to ALMOST finish the bathroom this week.  Well, most of the painting, that is.  The vanity and the mirror will be done.

But the door.  Oh, the door.

I mean, who really wants to take the bathroom door off?  It's just so...ewwww.  Bathrooms need a door.  It's just how it is, you know?  I have a curtain I can put up with a tension rod.....but, I've been really avoiding this.  PLUS, the door needs to be sanded.  Outside.  And we are getting another snowstorm overnight, so outdoor sanding may not be happening anytime soon.  I'll talk to the Zudster and see how he feels about sanding a door today.  I'm thinking since it's his only day off he'll nix it.

Anyhoo.....I will be priming tomorrow and Tuesday and then Wednesday I will pick up a quart of paint.  I still haven't decided yet.  I've been looking at peacock blue, but I can't seem to find one that floats my boat, man.  So I'm going to pick up a sample of Hale Navy (Benjamin Moore) and see if that's the color I want:

Here are a couple of photos I found on Google of things and rooms painted Hale Navy:

Here's the blind I will get:

 And the shower curtain:

Also, I need new knobs and other bathroom hardware.  Here are some examples of things I like:

Here's a reminder of how the room looks right now:

Boy, I sure wish we could replace that medicine cabinet, but we're afraid it would open a can of worms that we want to stay closed :) I'm hoping painting it will take away from some of it's "eightiness".....kind of high hopes, but hopefully, it will do for now.

The wall color will be Valspar's Sesame, just like the hallway and all of the woodwork will be painted Swiss Coffee by Behr

Here's something else I'd like to mention:  Who cares about home rehab when little kids are in pain?  Please go to Sarah's blog and send little Molly some love.  My heart is breaking for her.  She is a beautiful, strong little girl who is enduring way too much right now.  I'm praying for her speedy recovery from her pain and some much needed relief.

I love your choices! Is the dark blue going on the cabinet?

Oh, Man! I forgot to mention that, Kim! Yes...the Navy is going on the sink cabinet and the mirror will be painted the same color as the trim :)

I love that blue--can't wait to see how it turns out! And your hall looks amazing in the after shot.

I like it. Looks just like the picture. The colors are more vibrant in person. It filled the empty space in the wall perfectly. 3d oil painting on canvas
