I hated my bathroom! I’ve hated it since we moved in... It has I wish I was white walls... and bright blue countertop.
I realized the other day that I never bother to organize the mini closet because I’d rather look at my stuff spilling out than the ugly paint...
In a moment of inspiration I decided today is the day... little Charlie was down for a nap.
My bathroom was going to receive a DIY makeover!
I grabbed my chalkboard paint, and two cans of spray paint from the basement and went to town...
I could not be happier... in about two hours I transformed my bathroom from ugly drudgery to a cute chalkboard wall to write fun messages and a counter that’s my favorite color.
I’ve decided that two coats is best for chalkboard paint, it helps it cover better. Then I spray painted the bottom shelf. Not a great idea to try to spray paint, under a closet, inside the house... I felt like my throat was burning for a few days.
|Ok...so It's not a great pic... Charlie was fussing|
and it was the middle of the night :)
My bathroom still isn’t perfect... the floor needs to be replaced, the widow is old with no sill... but when I walk in I see my fun chalkboard and bright pink counter. Instead of wishing for a new house, I have a small moment of joy each time I see it.
And it was free... I used paint from my basement and it only took about two hours!
Being on a tight budget I find that we don’t often put money into making our house cute... However I finally realized even if we can’t redo everything I can still do small things to transform the place.
