I know you are wondering when I am going to get back to posting about the girls bathroom.
Well it's today!!
Last time I posted about painting the cabinets a luscious navy blue!
I am in love with these cabinets, but I digress.
Today we are moving on!
I would call the style of the bathroom Modern Glam, but I am about to add a little Rustic Industrial touch.
But first I had to finish trimming out the walls. We had previously installed board and batten trim on the one long wall, and I decided I wanted it all the way around the room. To get a smooth paint job I use a brush to get in and around all the corners and boards followed by a roller. I switch back and forth between the two tools, where else do you store your paint brush besides your mouth?
(When your mouth is as big as mine it's a no brainier!! Don't judge!!)
If you remember way back when we moved the outlet on this wall it left a big old hole. I finally covered it, by placing my trim boards over the hole!
I call this the brilliant or the easy button!!
Once everything was caulked and painted it looked great!
I painted the bottom trimmed out half of the room a crisp white and the top a light grey.
I know you will want to know the color!
But you know how I roll. I used left over paint and mixed in some white, and bam, that's my color.
Now for that Rustic Industrial touch!!
I wanted some decorative shelves to add some pretty things for interest and personality.
I wanted to introduce something with more natural warm feel, so wood shelves it was!
I started with these stainless steel shelf supports.
(I am only guessing that is what they are. I bought them at Dessert Industries for $1 each.)
I also went through the wood pile and found this old 2x6 board.
I started by lightly sanding the metal supports and then priming and spray painting them.
(Of coarse you knew I was going to spray paint something!!)
I used the left over paint from the light fixture; Oil Rubbed Bronze by Krylon.
I then cut my board into two equal lengths, mine are 19 inches long.
I mixed a couple of stains I had on hand to get a color I liked on the wood shelves. Using the old peice of wood gave the shelves character, with lots of dents and pits on them.
Finally I just installed the supports and laid the wood on top!!
