I finally painted the bathroom! Hallelujah! It's been so sad and pitiful, when everything else has a fresh coat of paint. I debated back and forth about how to paint it (color above or below the chair rail?), what color to paint it (Juniper Ash or Elephant Skin), and how to treat the peeling walls.

Here's the before picture:

You might remember that wallpaper. Marcia had the task of peeling that off on our workday prior to moving in and the bathroom sat like that for almost 4 months (?), with the peeling remnants of old paint.

So this week, snowbound by the Snowpocalypse 2010, I bit the bullet. Elephant Skin, above the rail. White paint we already had below. So far, so good - til we got to the white paint. It was frozen. And destroyed. :( I hate wasting money! Anyway, since Byron's away for the week, I decided to git 'er done! (ahem, sorry. What just happend there?)

Here's the results:

Much more calm and serene. I need some art on the walls and perhaps a new rug, but I love it. Our own little spa.


  1. Ahhhh.... Spa Fruit. Serene and chic!

  2. Very nice! Can you post more pictures of the table to the right of the vanity? Is that an enamel-top table?

  3. Linz- I'm working on that for ya! :)
