Powder Bath Progress

21 Jun

When I was 11 or so, my bedroom was yellow. Not a pale, creamy yellow, not a mustard yellow, it was canary yellow, or YELLOW! as my mom called it. I picked it, and I liked it (at the time).  The theme song to my bedroom quickly became Corey Hart’s Sunglasses at Night. Fast-forward a few years, and my parents were thrilled to help me repaint my bedroom blue.

When I had the paint chip in my hand at the home improvement store, I was confident I’d like dark walls in our powder bathroom (all because I noticed a trend on my Pinterest board). When I saw the mixed can of near black liquid, I questioned my own judgment. My thoughts were, “What will my mother say about this color?” and, “Will the powder bathroom have a theme song?”

Hesitantly, I brought the paint home, and started covering the walls. Hoping my husband wouldn’t hate it, uncertain I’d like it myself, I felt daring.

Before

Before I moved in, before Anthony and I were even engaged, I took down the builder grade mirror, and replaced it with the one pictured above, which was (flipped horizontally) above my headboard at home. Small improvement.

After

After

I love the black walls and the progress, but the room is still lacking decor. I’m on the hunt for:

Black and Gold

Why didn’t anyone tell me how difficult it is to paint behind a toilet? Are there tricks? Any suggestions for a theme song?
