Yellow and Grey

It's been a long time coming (see here and here) but our guest bath is finally complete (well at least the walls are painted).

  1. We removed wallpaper only to unveil a beautiful forest green-colored paint (can you sense the sarcasm?)
  2. After covering everything and taping all the edges, the priming began 
  3. The green paint was so dark that it needed not one,
  4. but two, coats of primer

After many hours of work stretched over several months, I'm so happy with the result; a much more modern bathroom that appears cleaner, larger and brighter than its former version.

The details:
The shower curtain and bath mat are from West Elm. 

There are certainly some more details I'd like to add, like wall hangings and new bath towels, but for the time being I love it and I have confidence that our guests will be comfortable in our new redesigned bathroom. 

Now onto our next home project - the deck! 

Be blessed,

  1. Hi there, I came across your blog randomly on BlogSpot and wanted to say I love what you did with the bathroom! The yellow and grey combo is very chic. :) I am a baby blogger and I like getting inspiration from others. Nice to meet you!

    1. Jami, thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to check out your blog, I'm always looking for great new blogs to add to my reading list. When you get a chance can you send me the URL?

  2. Looks great Brittany. It deffinatly feels cleaner and calmer. The wall paper before was just too much; color, texture, and pattern for the space. FEELS GREAT NOW! I can't wait to visit and see it.
    PS working on the living room a little. A few pictures are on Facebook.

  3. Way to go Brittany! It looks so great!

    1. Thanks so much Sarah, it was a loooooong time coming!

    Don't you wish the work was as quick as posting the photos?

    I've nominated you for the Liebster Award! http://www.effiegirl.com

    1. Hi pretty lady! Thanks so much. I am seriously rethinking DIY projects, this one took so much time! Thanks so much for the nomination! You're so sweet!

  5. Hi Brittany! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I LOVE your bathroom! The paint color adds such depth, and I guessed as soon as I saw your linens that they were west elm. Love that place!

    1. Thanks so much Erica! I love West Elm too, it's one of those really "dangerous" stores where I love to shop but always spend too much!

  6. I am in love with that bathroom!
