...on Friday. Remember when I said I bought a couple of paint samples. Well, I loved them. So I decided that it would be good idea to just jump in and paint the upstairs bathroom. This weekend. Oh and did I mention that the appraiser was coming on Monday. Hee hee.
I just couldn't help it. That bathroom was so boring and blah. And the new colors looked so good.
So Friday night I used up all the paint in my little sample pots. Then I decided to remove the side pieces of the countertop. They were put on all wonky - like the caulk was laid down first and then the pieces were resting on top of the caulk. I also wanted to take down the awful towel bar that was on the wall above the toilet (you can kinda see it in the picture above) which is just a ridiculous spot since it is just asking a child to drop a towel in an open bowl - not that that has happened at our house but I'm just saying. Of course, both the counter pieces and the towel bar were stuck with adhesive so it made for some largish unsightly holes when I pulled them off.
No problem. I still had 2 days before the appraiser.
So I hightailed it back to Home Depot on Saturday for more paint. And then I painted. And patched. And painted some more.
In the meantime, I did get my husband to install a new faucet. The old one was a cheapo plastic handle version.
Well, by Sunday night I had managed to finish the vanity and get the new hardware on that. Plus I was able to get one coat of paint on all the walls. I purposely did not paint above the mirror because I ordered a new light fixture so I'll finish that when we install the new light.
However, I have not had a chance to paint any of the molding or the doors my favorite white and it really needs a 2nd coat of wall color but it was almost 8pm and Downton Abbey was starting.
So this morning I stashed all my supplies in the tub and pulled the curtain closed. The appraiser never even batted an eye or asked me why one wall was missing paint.
Yep. So now I am waiting on the new light because, of course, I hated all the in-stock ones at both the Home Depot and Lowes. My hope is that it will arrive just as I am finishing up the trim.
Stay tuned for a real before and after post.
