Wondrous Wednesdays: bathroom redux…

After 22 years in this home, it is time to update the bathrooms. Eight years ago, we installed wood floors, new carpet and vinyl downstairs (which included a powder room). Now, the upper floor has its day. Beginning next week, we will have new floors and toilets installed in the two upper baths.

Additionally, we are changing the color schemes of both rooms, while keeping the marble sink/countertops that we chose when we built this home.  We really like those sinks!

Today, I am sharing some “before” paint pics. You can see some of the new paint against the old color and design.

Previously, we had textures and faux finishes on these walls.

The master bath will have the walls behind the sink and toilet in a medium blue-green tone. The remaining walls will be painted in a dove grey. The guest bath has a lovely taupe-grey on the sink and toilet wall. The remaining walls will also be painted in dove grey. 

The lovely feature about both the flooring and the paints that we chose is that they have a bit of a chameleon effect to them. The flooring is ivory, cool beige and has a grey marble effect streak that runs through it. The look is that of a travertine marble.  This same flooring takes on a different look in the master bath and the grey streak appears blue green. The dove grey paint complements both rooms in separate manners.

Watch for more pics and updates next Wondrous Wednesday!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
