How is it freaking February already?! Uck.
January has ffllloowwwnnnn by and I’ve not done too much. Remember, when I had this goal of filling up my Chairish shop with 200+ items? Well, I’ve been hunting and photographing (cleaning and fixing) like a beast, but I’m still a few short. As of this morning I have 190 items for sale with 6 pending approval. I’M SO CLOSE!!
But what that has meant, is that I haven’t been keeping up on anything in the house. Mostly I’ve been doing maintenance which is the most boringest, tedious-est crap in the world. You try keeping up with the stuff my 4 boys break/ruin and tell me if you don’t notice more grays popping in!! The thing is, lately I’ve been feeling like I’m missing something…. selling and buying is REALLY fun, but I think it’s about time I got my hands dirty again.
Insert the room I try to avoid at all costs.
My boys bathroom. Dun, dun, ddduuuunnnn!
Why do I avoid it? As if you’re even asking me that… BECAUSE 5 GROSS DUDES USE IT!! Regularly… If you know what I’m sayin’. Very Regularly.
With that in mind, I want to update it but not put anything too precious in it. You see that teal Ikea bath mat that was probably like $5? That is the perfect thing in here… They can ruin it and mama won’t even care. For the last year or so I’ve been hoarding things that could work. I have a few mirrors that I didn’t use in the powder room, a new light, a toilet paper holder, etc… My goal is to update it for less than $100.
I will give you all the juicy details – Promise!!
The tile in the room is a chocolate brown with gray grout – it’s not the fanciest, but I really love it in here. I’ll get a shot of the shower for next time, since I forgot to take one – duh. Right now it has these bamboo decals on it, which were fun for baby stuff, but now that the boys are older, those will go.
Here’s what’s in my head…
I have it in my mind to paint the room the green color you have seen 100 times already. I could do a blue… but green would nicely with the room. We’ll see, it’ll be fun. I’ve picked up a few samples to make sure that it won’t be too dark with the brown floors and the teal vanity and black granite. The ceiling will stay gray, but a new coat will go up… For the life of me, I can’t find the original gray that I used in here and I need to do a bunch of touch ups. Painting ceilings. My favorite.
I picked up some sample pots last week, so I’ll snap a few photos of ’em to see what y’all think.
Any ideas on how to remove that granite? Seemed like a good idea at the time… Oopsie.
I think that’s it for now! I’m off to patch!!
