Now that it’s getting way too hot outside for my tastes, I’m thinking about my next project one that’s been on the agenda for a while: the bathroom tile.
Because the PO had the entire bathroom tiled, including the ceiling, we’re not going to be tearing it out anytime soon. (Yes, the ceiling too!!)
But I just cannot stand the blue-and-yellow color scheme it has got to go. I’ve also gotten used to it, and that scares me.
So I came up with a plan that I believe I could live with indefinitely, because I’d much rather put our efforts into building a mudroom or finishing the attic before ripping out this bathroom.
Since the yellow tiles are fewest in number, I decided I will eliminate those by painting them like I did for the kitchen back splash (also same PO color scheme).
Ta da! My new color scheme (plus white):
I bought a quart of Vanex Breakthrough paint and had it tinted to match the darker floor tile color (on the left). It definitely matches the darkest swatch, but I think I could have gone with the lighter swatch. I painted a test tile and it looks a tiny smidge darker than the floor. Oh well, I still like it.
The brown you see in the background is the Ultimate Turkish Towel in Chocolate from Restoration Hardware. I loooovvvve blue and brown together, and with the white fixtures and blue-and-white floor, it will look so much better, don’t you think?
It’s going to take some time to tape and paint all those tiles, and I’m also going to paint the tiles first with Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 primer, but I’m not in a huge rush. As long as it remains this hot, I’ll have all summer.
