This is my plain-jane builder-basic powder bath. I did originally select a pedestal sink because the room was so small that I did not want a huge cabinet in there. Although I do miss the storage, I think it looks great and keeps it open in there.
Over the weekend (between little man's naps), I measured out the stripes. I heard of a few different ways to paint the stripes and after deliberation, I drew lines with a level across the wall and then taped them off with Blue tape--
P.S. I would HIGHLY reccommend edge lock-- I ran out almost at the end of my taping off the stripes and used the cheap brand without edge lock and had a lot of bleeding without the edge lock!
I had a hard time deciding on a color...
and I narrowed it down to these.... eventually landing on the center one-- (it worked best with the floor tile)
I decided on Benjamin Moore's Revere Pewter in a Semi-Gloss (the base coat is Sherwin William's Crisp Linen in flat enamel)
On Monday I finally painted the stripes. As soon as I could, I slowly removed the tape!
Here are the results!
This picture shows the truest color for the room.
I still have to go back and touch up where the paint bled under the cheap tape and a few places that I painted over the tape onto the cream stripe, but that will again happen between naps and eventually will get done.
I still haven't hung the mirror or art yet. I want to make sure the wall is good and dry before I put anything up!
What do you think?
