making a house a home II

Small bathroom, before

This is the upstairs bathroom in our rental.  The landlord mentioned she hated the orange-sherbet color and had intended to paint it before they rented the house, but hadn’t got around to it.  Since my husband and I were waiting a month for the majority of our household goods to arrive, I was delightedly offered to take on the project myself.  I liked the warmth of the original color, however it was a bit intense.

I chose a warm cream/light yellow color.  Of course, since the first layer of paint was darker than my color, it took two coats.  However, the bathroom is small, and the paint dried quickly.  I was able to paint my two layers in one afternoon.
