DIY Inspiration

Small bathroom makeover

“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”  ~ Matthew 17:20 

This winter I had the opportunity to do a paint makeover in my small bathroom with the help of Pittsburgh Paints.

I am an adventurous soul, who is always inspired by nature everywhere I go.   I collect things on my travels.  Things like rocks, shells, maps, travel brochures, coffee mugs, blankets & of course plenty of photographs.  Items that I can look back back upon and gain a feeling and memory from.    This bathroom makeover is a perfect example of who I am as a person.  I hope through even just a simple blog post on the internet, that you can see and feel a little bit about who I am through my decorating style.

Nature and my travels is what inspired this small bathroom makeover.    I try to use as many nature themed colors in my home as possible and love bringing the outdoors in.

For this paint makeover, I chose the Pittsburgh Paints color, ‘Baby’s breath’ for the walls, and an accent color of ‘Lettuce Alone’ on the large built in cupboards,   I also chose bright white for the ceiling, trim, bathtub tiles and vanity cupboard, all in satin finish,   They are soothing, refreshing colors and I think they work really well together!

I was very pleased with the high quality of Pittsburgh Paints Grand Distinction Paint.   After sanding down the walls, that constantly cut my children’s hands, I was able to cover them with just 2 coats of paint.  Pittsburgh Paints line of Grand Distinction paint, has a built in primer, which allows better coverage, and much easier application than any paint I have used prior to this.

If you are interested in learning more about Pittsburgh Paints, take a stroll on over to Menards and check out their Simple Projects Great Results display.   It consists of project cards that have paint color ideas for a variety of small rooms in your home, along with accessory suggestions that are also available at Menards.

I was amazed at how much of a difference a paint color can make in a small room! Take a look for yourself below at the before and after photos!   Get ready to say goodbye to the green ceiling !
