The one about the half-done bathroom revamp

My bathroom revamp was simple by home-improvement standards: paint. Paint the primer-white bathroom with a beautiful, dark gray from Ace Hardware called "Medium Gray." (With all the fancy paint-color names in the world, I had to choose "Medium gray?" Anyway.) One would think that painting a bathroom would be a quick project. It's less than half the size of a regular room, right? At least mine is. Oh no, it took a day-and-a-half, the same amount as the apple-green craft room took two years ago. But it's done! It took most of Friday and part of Saturday. Isn't it way better, even with the drop cloth and blue tape?

So, on Sunday, I wanted to re-hang the cabinet (see first photo). This project involved the help of DH, who does not love interior home improvement projects. We got the cabinet hung. He left the room. It promptly fell off the wall. He got industrial-strength screw anchors from the garage (who knew?). It hasn't fallen off the wall in three days. We're good.

I couldn't resist buying new towels! New towels! Like new shoes for the bathroom! They're waiting patiently for their new towel rack. I still have a few finishing touches, but wanted to show you how much better the room looks with just the paint update.

And, as promised, here is the make-n-take card that we'll be making at my Stampin' Up! open house launch.
