Boys' Bathroom Paint


After
Before

The wall color is up. I decided to go with the red on the bottom and Latte on top. I really thought about going with white on the bottom, but having only boys, I was scared that it would always be dirty. Now that the color is done I'm going to live with it a couple of days and see if I fall in love with it or maybe I will end up hating it. This was a hard decision, everyone I asked had a different opinion. I took Julie's advice and asked the boys what they wanted. Nick said he want the bottom red and blue striped. NO THANK YOU!!! I am not cutting in around all of those boards. I have always said the only thing I can not do is accessorize, add "cutting in" to the that list.
This morning I am going to buy my trim for the mirror and look for a new light. I think Nester calls those strip of lights "Miss Piggy lights" (now that I type this, I'm not sure if it is Nester)it definitely has to go.

I have almost spent my $250 for this project and I still need a lamp. While I'm in town I might stop by goodwill and see if they have any I like. I think I want a black lamp so if I can find a nice shaped lamp I will just spray paint it.

I just went back and looked at this post. Sorry for the bad quality of the photos. The light is bright and the bathroom is small.

The bathroom is really looking good, Wendy! Hey, maybe you could put in a light with a dimmer switch! Or, is that more $$$ and more trouble than you want to go to? What are the boys thinking about it?
