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.

  1. You’re lucky… wish I could make a rental more my own… all the doors in our house are painted blue (yuck!)

    1. Well, in all fairness, we are sort-of helping out landlords make the place better too. But yea, it is nice to have things more to our own taste.

        1. Target is one of the few shopping places I did miss when living on the tiny island.
