Painting the Master Bathroom

12:00:00 PM

Ughhhh is all I can say about this bathroom.
It had some awesome storage solutions...
but it needed a paint job in the worst way...
powdered makeup and hairspray 
destroyed the paint in this room!

So I put him to work again...

 You may remember Jim from the ever popular
fire pit build.  Well this time he has a paintbrush
in hand, not a ton of pea gravel.  I try to tell him how
lucky his is to be painting rather than hauling gravel.

This bathroom really needed a make-over!

We decided to go with Behr Ultra on top, the color is Tide Pool
and it is the perfect shade of turquoise... not too green or blue.

On the bottom we chose Bright White in egg shell finish.
Both paints contain primer.

And this time since it is a small bathroom we are opting
to paint the ceiling the same color...

I did this in my daughter's bathroom and it just works.
(and it is much easier than trying to get a straight line along the top)

We are also changing out all the shiny fixtures in the bathroom
while we are at it... I would love to know why fixtures that are meant for the bathroom rust... can anyone answer that for me?

I reused many of the bathroom solutions 
I had in the before room...  

I removed the fabric from this cubbie shelf so the 
wall color shows through.

A black and white striped shower curtain adds great 
graphics to the room...

And wire baskets were changed out for dark gray 
canvas bags with rope handles...

They are not only easier to grab, 
but they don't scratch the shelves!

Together my husband and I learned how to change a light fixture
and the new one looks great over the mirror.

The bathroom now looks
clean and bright!

A successful make-over and no hauling involved!

  1. Your paint job and newly decorated bathroom look so pretty. I like the ceiling painted the same color.

  2. Nice storage. looks great and is functional. If you would, please address the matchstick they offer privacy at night? Thanks for your feedback.

    1. Hi Sarah Your settings are no-reply so I hope you get this response. Truthfully the matchstick blinds do more for good looks on the inside than for privacy. On my window I have a frosted contact paper so the light will come in and there is still privacy.

  3. Susan! I know you said that your bathroom has some similarities to mine - and you were right! But, ah, there are a couple more things (in my house) I need to show you photos of... a little spooky!

  4. Hope this doesn't submit twice...sorry . It looks great! Don't you just love it when you fall in love with some part of your house all over again! Love it!

  5. Love the new fresh looking! I see you have a painter "on staff" too...what lucky girls we are :)

  6. I love the new color and the room turned out beautifully!


  8. It's beautiful Susan. I'm especially find of those rope handled baskets.

  9. The bathroom looks great! I love that you painted the ceiling the same color--I may end up doing the same in one of ours, and in a similar color, too!

  10. Susan, your bathroom looks amazing! And I always have the same question whenever I take down an old bathroom fixture...why can't they make them rustproof? Behr Tide Pool looks SO good in here and I would love to feature this on my paint color blog, Involving Color. Let me know if you're interested!

  11. Youre bathroom looks lovely! What a crisp and fresh color! I think it is very interesting that you desided to paint the ceiling in the same color as the walls! I thought that would give an impression of a small room being even smaller? If thats not the case, than I am seriously thinking of doing the same in my kids bedroom. The ceiling has no natural start and end, because of a slight "tilting" on one side (not quite loft ceiling, but a little, if you know what I mean) Righ now the ceiling is white and the walls are green, but maybe I should try painting it all an same, light color?
    Anywho.... when I found youre blog and read "Repourposed & Reloved", I instantly knew that this was the right kind of blog reading for me! I allso have a blog where I wright about repourposed, thrifted and vintage things. Would love to have you stop by sometime:)
    Looking forward to reading more:)


Thank you for stopping by, I love your comments and I will do my best to reply to all your questions and comments. Please make sure your settings will accept emails so I can get back to you...
Have a nice day.
