Pattern Painting: A Bathroom Refresh
I did not get a before with this bathroom refresh, but outdated this outdated bathroom got a fun, fresh, updated look.
So in this blog I want to discuss the look, the process, and how you can achieve beautiful results with this DIY. So Let's start with "the look"!
Discussing The Look:
This bathroom really needed an update, but with a tight budget. Since I wasn't going for a full blow bathroom remodel paint was the best way to update the room. Let me be the first to tell you, paint can be your BEST friend. If you can't fully "reinvent the wheel" with your space paint can go a long way.
If you look to the right you'll notice this little mood board. This was my inspiration board for this bathroom refresh. I wanted to stay light and bright, but create something bubbly and updated.

These are the products I used and they were all super easy to find!
I used Sherwin Williams for my paint colors. The beautiful blue is called Sky High and for the pattern I used Extra White.
I already had my tape measure, paint tray, and paint roller frame, but these can all be easily found with the other products!
Everything else was purchased from Walmart. Again this is all super easy to find, just go to the paint section!
Now throw on some music and let's get started!
Your VERY first step with painting is cleaning the walls. I go over the wall with a dry rag first. Next I use a bowl of water with a few drops of dish soap added. I dip my rag, ring it out really good, and then get to scrubbing.
Once the walls are all cleaned up I lay a drop cloth down. Since my painting projects are pretty spread out I just grab a cheap, plastic, drop cloth and toss it once I'm done. Then comes the tape! For this project I used a TON of tape, but first the basics. I am a little OCD with my lines and I'm also a little impatient when actually painting. I tape off the trim, the ceiling, and anything else in the room that is not movable.
