After Pictures

July 25th, 2013 at 07:55 am

The painting did get done yesterday and it looks so much better. The girls wanted the same color that their bathroom was painted in our last house. A light blue, specifically Pale Flowers by Valspar available at Lowe's. I did not buy their primer based paint becdause it so expensive and not necessary for this paint job. Saved myself $10-$15 by making this choice.

The towels and shower curtain are the same too. The decorative mirror in the picture was purchased at an art fair for $25. I thought the message was worth the price for two teen girls. I hope to find a few cube shelves for above the toilet. I see they are available on Amazon for about $15, but I'll look for locally first and even consider a used set.

Sorry I don't have any before pictures. Although I probably do somewhere; from last year when we moved in. Just imagine builder white. Although most of our walls and ceiling are a buff cream color.

I sold another item on Ebay, likely netting about $8. I will put that in the mail today. I also was able to redeem Swagbucks for another $25 deposit in my PayPal account. I will add that to the Snowflakes for Equity once I have it in my account.

Do you know how to paint? Do you paint often or infrequently? Any one not know how to paint a room?

    Love it!

    I've painted before - outside of my family's house back in 1991? and the inside wall of my local church school's library back in 2010? It can be a lot of fun. Smile

    Nice! We painted our Living Room, but I'll admit I'm a bad painter. I'm better at furniture. Our 1960s bathroom cabinets came out nice, I thought.

    Every room in our 2200 sq ft house had to be painted last year when we bought the place. (And I mean HAD TO!!!) I used to like to paint, but after that...it will be a while before I paint again.

    Sure - you laboriously pick out paint colors with your neighbor, then you spent hours putting down inexpensive tarp and keeping your dogs away. You then put down inexpensive masking tape on the trim. Then you paint 1 and 1/2 walls, lock the room, wait two months and have your neighbor across the street finish the work and buy new blinds and take out the shelves you didn't want in there anyway, and then paint the inside of the closet and then have your nephew move in.

    That looks lovely. I love the message on the mirror.

    Catching up .. I like the mirror too. And it looks great with the blues and browns.
