Master Bath gets a new look

Posted by: Paulette
When we moved into this house almost all of the rooms were painted the same peachy beige. At first I liked it, but as the years have gone by, I've tired of it, and have wanted a cooler feeling atmosphere in our Arizona home. A few months ago I picked up some paint for some furniture repaint projects as well as a can of oops paint. For the color in my bathroom, I mixed a robin's egg blue, with some of the oops paint, which was a builder beige, and some antique white. The color I got was exactly what I was looking for. A very soft aqua.
In the above picture you can see the peachy beige in the next room. That's my bedroom, and if I have enough of this paint left, I will be doing that room the same color as this one. I still have to remove the (evil) wallpaper border first. There's also a smaller room you don't see to the right of the silk that is the W.C. More wallpaper border to remove there too. As if painting isn't bad enough!

That lovely distressed white mirror used to hide a HUGE hole in the wall. I had to cut a piece of stud to replace the one that was missing, and then inserted it in the hole, attaching it to the stud top and bottom that remained, by sinking the screws in at a diagonal, and then cut the drywall to fit, screwed that to the stud, and taped it to the existing drywall with drywall tape and then used drywall compound to patch all of that up. Too bad home improvement projects can't be easier and faster.
This is the facing wall and the shower curtain made from a sheet. I love the new color, and now all of my accessories pop!
