First round of paint - check!

I spent most of the weekend in my paint clothes. Hopeful that I wouldn't have to do more than two coats.... Nope.
Definitely needed three. Both ceiling and walls. 

This color has a nice, bright tone. Just a hint of yellow to it. I do like that aspect, but the light fixture globes have to go. 
Hopefully sooner than later, but this mini makeover is supposed to primarily be a 
paint treatment and a new mirror. 

On the subject of the mirror.
If you read my Facebook updates, you know that plan had to change.

We discovered that the mirror wouldn't budge, and that some drywall repair and/ or replacement would be necessary. Since this was only a mini makeover, the idea of using this:

...was out.
I'm mulling around some ideas, I guess we'll all have to wait and see what works out! 
Tomorrow I begin the second part of the paint project:

I hope you had a fabulous weekend, and a happy Monday to you.
I'm spending the afternoon with with a buddy here (one spot among many!):

Assistance League Cook's Tour.
Local chefs preparing some fabulous food, and a peek at some gorgeous area homes!
I've actually been through this one before, and it is AMAZING.  It was on our local Tour of Homes (new builds) a couple years ago.
Hoping I can sneak some photos to show you tomorrow!

Can you believe we are in our last week of September??!


  1. So far, so good! I'm liking the paint treatment already.

  2. Yikes! Mirror removal!! Why do they have to put such plain mirrors up in the first place, anyway? I'm sure yours will be much classier when your bathroom is complete! andrea@townandprairie

  3. Hey Denise~ Loving the new color and hope you can figure out your mirror issue! Projects always seem to have a monkey wrench in them somewhere!

  4. hmm...we had major drywall repair in our bathroom because of our light fixture. mirror was easy. i wonder if you can just frame it out where it is, or use this idea? no one needs to see themselves too long in a guest bath, right?


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a note!
