New Paint in the Guest Bath

Hi, everyone.   I had the best time seeing Diane Keaton speak at the Nashville Antique and Garden show on Friday.  I can’t wait to tell you about it.  Meanwhile, last fall Jordan and I both painted our guest bedrooms the same color on the same day.  You can read about that here and here.  Well, since our guest bedroom is an en suite, I still needed to paint the attached bath.  Finally, after a boat load of procrastination, I got around to it last week.  The change is subtle since the only things that changed are the wall color and the shower curtain.  Instead of a bright, flaming yellow, the color is now a soft neutral with yellow undertones (Creme by Sherwin Williams.)  It’s the same color we used in the bedroom.

So, come on into the tiny room and see what I did.

First off, I made the shower curtain, which is nice and long.  The fabric is for indoors and outdoors so it can handle any dampness.  There is a plastic lining behind it.

I went with the safe choice on the colors.  After going to way too many fabric shops and getting overwhelmed and confused, I am sorry to say that I went with a safe choice.  However, I love stripes in a big way, and the colors are the same that I use in the rest of the house.

We have a solar tube in the room, and it was creating a glare on the day I took these shots.  We LOVE the solar tube, by the way, and have three of them.  (I am not being paid to say this.)

You can get a better look at the color here.  It truly is a creamy color, like the soft shade of a pat of butter.  Ironically, the old paint color was called melted butter, but a better name would have been lemon rind.  It was intense.

Here’s the before.  The difference doesn’t look so great in the photos, but take my word for it.  There’s a huge difference.

Some of the accessories are the same, and others are just items that came from other areas of the house.  All of the art is original.  One painting is by my mother, the two watercolor geraniums are from an art show that takes place every August in the park across from our place, and the drawing is from an antique shop.

It’s always nice to get a project finished that has been on the to-do list for a while, and I am happy to check this one off.

 

Take care.

    I love your shower curtain!! It is just the inspiration I need. I had installed a high shower curtain bar and plastic liner but could not find a shower curtain I liked. There is limited selection of extra long ones and also they are expensive. You are my inspiration. I am going to make one. Thank you for the idea.

      Kay, I agree that the selection is limited. Also, I like a nice thick shower curtain and the fabric on some that you buy is flimsy.

    I can also vouch for the solar tube. I have one in an interior hall bathroom. We have had it for about eight years. They are wonderful.
