March Madness: Guest Bath II

For my March Before and After project I've been working on the guest bathroom. This bathroom is shared by both of my roommates so it requires some smart choices and a bit of neutrality. The first thing that had to go was the awful blue paint color. Truly terrible choice on my part.

I decided to use the left over grey from my bathroom because I am a poor college student and a $30 dollar gallon of paint has to be justifiable. 

Here's the painting in progress...

I won't lie to any of you.... painting over baby blue was hard.



and terrible.

And not advised.


I feel like every roll of the brush made the room brighter and bigger. Plus it became far more updated and lovely.


It's interesting that the grey took on a slightly blue hue. Perhaps that's just my eyes seeing blue through all the paint. Hoofta. I spent roughly 3 hours trying to cover that.


The next thing that I did was paint the beat up looking corner round that surrounds the shower and is along the floor. Of course I went white.



It made a huge difference! Plus if you look in the mirror you can see the cabinet that I hung up on ONE TRY! Yeah. I am that awesome! It's been working out really well. Yay me!


Here's a closer shot of the new cabinet...



My roommates love it already which I think is a positive sign of a job well done! I'm pretty excited by it myself. What do you think? Does it look more grown up with the gray?
