Master Bathroom RE-Paint Party

{Master Bathroom Painting - Take 2}
Like I mentioned in the last post... the blue "gray" that we painted the FIRST time...
Just wasn't working for us... and our "vision" that we had in mind.
So yesterday I headed out to find a warmer... darker gray color.
I think I hit the nail right on the head, with Wood Smoke from Glidden.

Here is what this space looks like now...


DEFINITELY the perfect color... for what we are doing.
Can you just imagine the white planks and chunky framed mirror????
Oooo... I can :)
Alright... well here's how the
"Paint Party" went down ... let's just say, it was sort of a family affair.
but when ISN'T it, with kids, right??? ha!


Oh!  PS.
That painting "tool" that we love...is
The Shur - Line Paint Edger
I think it's about $2.75.  And worth EVERY LITTLE PENNY
:)

  3. Ha, I did the same thing. I bought a blue that I thought would be awesome, but it turned out to be a disaster, so like you, I had to start over. Funny thing is, I went with gray as well... Love your blog. Keep up the great work!

  5. I love that little paint edger thing-a-ma-jig tool too! I won't start a painting project unless I know I have it! The pads rinse out pretty good too!

    How do you get your hubby to be such a great sport! You are lucky!

  12. What a great video! :) We use the Shur-line tool too, but most likely because our house is almost 60 years old, we still end up with paint on the ceiling. :)

  13. When we built our house a few years ago, that cheap little edging tool from Shur-Line saved my sanity! I couldn't live without it :)

  16. I like it! I use those edgers all the time. I also use A LOT of baby wipes. They are perfect to roll the wheels of the edger over to make sure all the paint is off them and for cleaning up little 'oops' spots on the wall quickly.

  17. FYI: FROG TAPE is worth every penny! I just tried it on my blue wall and I will never use anything else... just a tip you know, for your NEXT AmAzInG project!

  22. You mentioned you used Glidden paint, how do you like it? I went to Wal-Mart to get a can of Kiltz paint and the lady there said that Wal-mart was not going to be selling Kiltz anymore, that Glidden was going to take its place. By the way, I love the color you chose!!

  24. I swear by the Shur-Line Paint Edger too! Ah-mazing! I loved the helpful man at Lowe's who told me to paint the paint on the the edger with a brush, then edge. Genius!

  33. I love the new color! Grey is the best. We're in a rental with peachy pinky off-white walls. BLEGH. Not my favorite.

    BTW, it was great to meet you at the DownEast Home event! You're so rad. I can't wait to see what you do with your mirror! Oh, and P.S. thanks SO much for the ride home!!

  35. Hi Shelley! Can I just say that your advice on the Shur-Line tool just about changed my life? Ha! Ok not really but it sure has made painting my kitchen/dining room/breakfast room a whole lot easier. THANK YOU for sharing! I'm absolutely giving you a shout out on my blog for this one :)
