Painted Table & Painted Bathroom Refresh
How to paint a wood patio table
Master Bathroom Refresh
Our home was built in 2007, we moved in 2 years ago, and I’m pretty sure the walls haven’t been painted since it was built. The walls of the entire home are a neutral brown and to be honest I’m so sick of brown!! I was so happy to repaint the master bath in a clean fresh off white.
I chose cottage white, a warm off white with yellow hues in it. It is incredible how much brighter the bathroom is! I used a satin finish in the KILZ COMPLETE COAT™ at Walmart. I am super happy with how the paint went on with beautiful coverage and a great finish.
I’ve used several brands of paint and primer in one and the KILZ COMPLETE COAT™ holds up to its competitors at a better price! I will definitely use it going forward, and I have a lot of painting ahead of me.
I used small touches of green and blue for decorating and love the natural, warm and fresh feel to the bathroom. I also replaced the light bulbs over the sink with daylight bulbs instead of soft glow. It’s SO much brighter and better for doing my makeup. We are lucky to get some great natural light to the bathroom but on a cloudy day these bulbs really make it feel like the sun is shining.
Have you repainted a room lately? What color did you choose? I’m SO in love with gray and white but as you can see my tile, trim and cabinets are all very warm shades of beige. Gray just wasn’t going to work. I was looking for a quick refresh not a renovation and the cottage white KILZ® paint was just the ticket to making me love this room!
Fake greenery really helps give the room a happy and clean feel. Do you have real plants in your bathroom? I do on my main floor but I just knew real plants would be too much upkeep for me anywhere else in my house.
I decided to make some wall art for my bathroom wall. Using “Lather, Rinse, Repeat” adds a little bit of fun to the wall. Add small decorations, wall art and of course the fresh coat of paint totally transformed my bathroom!
I have some of this warm white left over- about half a gallon and I’m sure I’ll use it for other projects around my house. What room in your house needs a fresh coat of paint? I’d love to hear in the comments or on Instagram (@handmadeintheheartland) or facebook!
