When we first moved into the house, the bathroom looked like this:
Don’t let the picture fool you- the walls were FAR too dark for the space, the tile was cracked, the floor grout was permanently stained, and there was a curtain where the vanity door should be.
Recently, we replaced the vanity and I painted the tile:
But I’ve yet to talk to you about the walls and the floor!
Painting geometric walls was crazy easy.
Because it’s a bathroom, I used mold and mildew resistant primer on both the walls and the ceiling. Then I rolled on 1 coat of Fountain, paced anxiously as it dried, then randomly Frog Tape-d the walls to look like my inspiration picture. Once done I rolled on two coats of City Nights by Clark + Kensington (Ace Hardware brand paint) and carefully peeled off all the tape.
I freaking love these walls. They are so modern and funky, and because it’s only 1/4 of the wall space it’s not overwhelming.
Next up- grout paint! This is simple- you get Polyrenew grout paint for like $12 dollars and an old toothbrush and just paint it right on:
Wipe up the excess as you go with a damp rag, then let it dry for 72 hours. And BAM! New grout color! You can see a much more detailed how to over on Domestic Imperfection’s blog .
So finally, here’s where the bathroom is today:
A million times lighter and brighter, and lots of personality!!
Still a bit left to do, like fill the space where the vanity ends and the wall begins, and maybe add a glass shelf above the toilet? I’m not sure about that yet though.
