After two coats of mud and some sanding of our joints and corner in the bathroom, I was finally able to get to the fun part. Prime and Paint!
I don’t know about you guys but some of the detail stuff in the home improvement task list often feels like your getting nowhere on your project. For example – tape, mud and sanding. booooring. I like projects where I get to build something, paint something. I think it’s that instant gratification. I’m doing something and then WHAM. It’s different and beautiful. You don’t really get that with mudding and sanding a wall.
So after some serious internal debate, I decided on Behr Ashwood. It’s very similar to Sherwin Williams Dovetail Grey which is what Elizabeth from The Mustard Ceiling used in her dining room.
Here is Ashwood from Behr:
And this is Dovetail Grey from Sherwin Williams:
I would say that the Ashwood is a bit more “earthy” with more brown undertones. I think I was too afraid to go with a true grey thinking it might look “blue” in the bathroom. I was also a bit nervous that it would make our tiny windowless bathroom look really small with such a dark color on the wall and knowing that the flooring is going to be dark. But then I thought, hey, it’s only paint and it can easily be changed.
Here is what our bathroom looks like so far.
I think Seth was a bit shocked to come home from work yesterday and see how much progress I made in only a few short hours. I’m hoping that by Wednesday we will have tile in the shower! Stay tuned!
