A dark color in a small room may feel scary, but it’s worth it! I went bold with our dark gray bathroom and love how it turned out!
You know what feels good? Getting stuff done. I love nothing more than to accomplish things on my to do list, especially my house to do list. This weekend I finally finished painting our dark gray bathroom and I love it! (Forgive the pictures, it’s hard to photograph a bathroom at dusk!)
This was definitely one of those colors that by the time I had all areas around the trim painted I was worried that it would be too dark and wouldn’t look good, I was wrong. The color is so moody and sophisticated, it really helps give the bathroom a completely new and updated look.
Yes, the frames on the wall are still empty. I have plans to put a few pictures from Europe in them, so they’ll probably be empty for another two months. And the paint around the top of the sink looks awful. I ran into an issue with the previous owners getting non-paintable caulk all over the wall over there. If you have any tips on how I can fix that issue I’d love to hear them! But let’s not focus on the negative today…
I’m seriously in love with this color! It’s a muddy grey, kind of a dark greige if you will. It looks great with the white bathroom tiles, and the white curtains in the room. I even love the way it looks against the wood trim! What’s the name of this really great color you may be asking, well… I don’t remember. I know, blogger fail. I’ll have to track down my sample to find out since I got paint all over the sticker where they write the name of the paint. (I’m a really messy painter).
Another change we made in here was flipping the mirror from vertical to horizontal. I have no idea why they hung the mirrors this way, but after we flipped it in the guest bath, we knew it needed to be done in here too. Eventually I’d love to get a bigger mirror for above the sink, or two mirrors and install double sinks. I’ll be painting the cabinets in here eventually and replacing all the hardware. Heck, we may do a complete overhaul in the next few years (fingers crossed!) But for now I’ll just enjoy my new shiny paint color! (I say shiny because I used a semi-gloss paint. The previous owners used flat paint in this room and you could literally see the moisture on the walls, not the case with the semi-gloss).
Who else is obsessed with greige right now? Or has been painting? Any ideas on what to do about my caulk issue?
