Knowing we’ll have several rounds of visitors over the summer (and in the next few weeks) we’ve pushed to get more done in the main bathroom. Despite the vanity needing a few details, I put the first coat of Chicago Blues on.
I love it. The swatch looked a little nuts, but in the space, it reads as a brighter navy.
A second coat will follow once Ben installs the top trim pieces, but the change and progress is welcome. You might notice I painted the walls and ceilings. Well, everything that I could around the patched areas. In my mood board, I used Stone White from Ben Moore, but it looked too blue in person. Eventually, I’ll paint the main areas Wood Smoke by Glidden, so I had the paint guy at Home Depot give me a 25% tint to flow with the rest of the house. I figure getting a first coat on the majority will help. Then I can prime and paint the patched areas, go over the entire room again for a seamless paint job.
Handy Sammy’s family stopped in to stay with us, so I added a few accessories to pretty it up a bit.
We’ve got more trim work to do, grouting in the shower, and painting, but we do have a functional toilet complete with toilet paper holder.
Fingers crossed Ben has time to grout the shower to get it functional for our guests.
How was your weekend? Did you do any painting? Maybe you installed a toilet? We had fun chatting with family and eating dinner on the deck.
