I’m in the middle of making over our downstairs half bathroom, and trust me when I say it needs it. While we can’t gut the whole thing right now and start from scratch (although I would love to!), in the meantime I am doing what I can to improve it with paint and accessories. I painted the walls and I’m in the process of painting the vanity, and I’ll show you everything very soon. For now, I knocked out painting the walls super quickly — my husband even said, “you’re finished already?”. I used the HomeRight PaintStick which exponentially cuts down on painting time. The best part is you can win one! Stay tuned for a giveaway at the end of this post.
The PaintStick is easy to use, you just clip the fill tube onto your paint can, insert it into the handle, pull up on the tube and it sucks the paint up into the handle. Then, you push the handle in as you need more paint on your roller, so you don’t have to keep bending over and dipping your roller in paint. (I used a similar tool for our living room which you can read about here.)
We started with builder beige/tan walls that looked yellowish in the light. We haven’t touched the room since we moved into the house a year and a half ago. Here is the “before” photo:
We haven’t even hung anything on the walls! I grabbed my paint stick and painted it Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl, lightened by 50%. I wanted to go with a light color to brighten up this tiny room.
It’s hard to photograph since this room gets zero natural light, but hopefully when I’m all finished making over the room I can get a better photo. It’s already lighter and brighter.
I can’t wait to show it to you all finished in the next week or two!
