Ever since we redid our kitchen floor and put up a fence last summer, I have had the home improvement bug. I decided the next project would be our bathroom. It was not terrible when we moved in, but too dark for my taste.
I bought all the things I needed to redo the bathroom, and then we just never had the time. So, when Hubby told me he had some vacation time this month, I asked if we could do the bathroom. He said of course. I had no idea how awesome it would turn out.
First step was we needed to sand the walls and ceiling. The people who last painted this messed up a bit. Not only did they not used bathroom paint, which is specially formulated to deal with heat, steam, and condensation, they layered latex paint over oil based paint. The result was that the walls looked all cracked and the ceiling paint was coming in chunks around the shower. So, first, we sanded.
After the primer dried, it was time to paint. First we painted the darker blue color, all over the walls.
