Bathroom Vanity Redo

It just seemed natural to redo the master bathroom vanity area after finishing the room next to it with the skylight. Thankfully it happened to be a much smaller space so removing the wall paper wasn't as time consuming. It took about eight hours to take off all the wall paper and glue. Only a a few rough spots remained so I patched and sanded those and was ready to paint.

Paint Color Choices

The natural colors of sea shells were used to paint with.

  • Sandrift Tan - Glidden Light base Eggshell/Satin Interior Latex

  • Amber Stone - Dutch Boy Deepstone Base C

  • White Flat - Glidden Ceiling Paint Interior Latex

Painiting Progress

I couldn't wait to get started painting this area as I wanted to take it from looking so busy to a more relaxed feeling. It was time to make a big change with the tired old wall paper removed. Painting the walls solid colors opened up the space in no time presenting a soft and welcoming feel to the entire bathroom vanity area.

With such a huge variety of shell decor in stores these days it was easy to find some wall art. I selected a few pieces for the walls with shells in them.

I've been having fun swapping out different color towels too. Black, white and burgundy seem to work the best so far.
