because I had a lime green bathroom. With bright brass fixtures. Because it is lime green no more.
I do still have the bright brass fixtures, though.
This one my sweet sister tackled with me. I mean, who wants to paint in such cramped quarters with moi? And a boys’ bathroom?
She’s a saint as far as I’m concerned.
We started at about 9:00 AM and finished up about 13 hours later with some breaks for food, controlling the chaos and one significant middle-of-the-project paint color change (and resulting trip to Home Depot).
Considering we were the only 2 adults present, with 11 kids running wild, I think we did okay.
My boys love it. They *almost* shrieked like girls when we brought them in to see the final result. Then they flexed their muscles and grunted because all that black and grey made them feel so manly.
Made every stinky bit of it worthwhile.
Thanks, sis. I owe ya.
P.S. For anyone interested, we used Martha Stewart Cement on the walls. A yardstick, pencil and Frog Tape for all the taping (love this stuff) and some left behind semi-gloss black paint for the striping and cabinet. Total cost about $60.
P.P.S. Sorry about the iPhone pics. Didn’t feel like pulling out my big camera for before pics, but wishing now I had. The lime green was truly something to behold.
