Bathroom Paint Job... in progress

Here was most of my labor day weekend... workin' in the 'can' :) Most of the new, darker color is done... it's Restoration's 'Cappuccino'. The trim will be a nice, lighter yet warm shade: 'Warm Linen". I won't be doing the trim, cabinet and sink area til next weekend.

I must say, it was hard to tape all the fixtures, ceiling, window etc. Plus, having the bathroom taken apart is so difficult when there are small children in the house. They can't help but 'assist' with the paint roller while I'm making dinner. My last paint project was in 2006 when I painted our daughter's room - whilst 9 months pregnant. From what I remember, that project was easier since no one had a reason to be in there :) Will be glad when it's done. "After" photos to come!

Happy hump day.

I like that warm cup of coffee of your walls! ;)
Looking forward to seeing the end result. And yes, taping off is a pain, isn't it?

Hi Jenniffer,
Thank you! I hope to be done soon!!!

Hi Beth,
I have silver sage in our bedroom! And, I used their beautiful violet for our daughter's room. Their colors just sing.
