During the last heat wave, when gardening was impossible, I decided to tackle the bathroom. It is the smallest room in our house, and none of the rooms are exactly large. So I never imagined that I would still be working on it weeks later! But I am.
Twenty years ago, we added tile to the bathroom. And we were going to paint it, get new light fixtures, etc, to complete it…”soon.” But time goes by and things get in the way. And nothing really got done. So a 10 day heatwave seemed like an opportunity to finally get to it.
We tiled it white with this border. I thought I would paint the walls a light blue to match the background color of the tile. I found three colors that were close and got some sample paint to try. I tried them on the walls and HATED them! All of them. The blue just wasn’t working for me.
I had already painted the ceiling white and I had some white paint left over. So I tried it on the walls. Perfect. Crisp and clean. But it was a lot of white.
So this cabinet, which started out in life white, was painted blue at some point and painted white again to go with the blue walls, was again painted blue. But I left the doors white to lighten it a little.
But that was a bit boring so I got the idea to paint the flowers from the tile on it.
And we still need to hang a few pictures and add some potpourri or something. But we are close!
