It has been a minute. You’d think I’d be done with jerseys – not yet. And you’d think I’d be further along with the bathroom, but again, you’d be wrong. I did happen to have a VERY nice birthday (I’m staring down the barrel of 4-0) and I finally met my goal of having 200 items for sale on Chairish!! Yay!! I think I actually hit 204 one day, but then some stuff sold, and it’s been varying around 195-200 every since.
Anyhoo, shall we dive in? I totally need your help picking a paint color.
I took the side part of the granite off! It actually wasn’t all that difficult and the wall damage is fixable. A definite score, in my book.
My little one bought me a heat gun for Christmas and mama finally put that sucker to use. It. is. fun. I love new toys that I get to play with.
I heated the stone up and then used that gigantor screw driver as a wedge to pry it from the wall. Then with a razor blade, I sliced the silicone bonding the two pieces together and bam, stone was buh-bye.
I was able to get the glue remnants off using a spackling knife and my trusty heat gun.
I even took off the old bamboo decals from the shower glass…
Since then, I’ve been patching holes, testing paint and procrastinating. My next step is to paint the ceiling and upper part of the wall gray. I think I’m just going to use a gray that I already have to keep it simple and not have to add another color to the list of things to keep track of in the house. My plan is to do the walls a green, but leave about 10-12″ of the top gray. I’m even thinking that the trim and door will be green too…
Here’s where I’m stuck…
- Should I paint the window trim green too?
- Both sides of the door?
- Which green? The top color is Cameroon Green, bottom is Juniper Ash
- The finish… I want the look of a matte paint, but is that too risky in a bathroom with this many boys?? On a door?
That right there, is the door and it leads out to the triple bunk room. Here’s an old photo I just dug up, (I don’t have the strength to tidy it up right now… or ever…. hahahha)
There’s actually furniture in there now and bedding, but at least you can get an idea of the wall color.
I’m kinda leaning towards one, so fingers crossed you are too!!
Smell ya later!
