I Painted Our Bathroom!

I’m slowly but surely getting rid of the beige walls that are everywhere in our home, and I’ve pretty much succeeded in several of the rooms! I guess the only beige rooms left now are the bathrooms, and the upstairs hallway/catwalk. I haven’t done anything to our bathrooms until recently, and I finally painted ours grey!

Remember it used to be a sea of beige. Beige walls and beige ceilings. Gag.

Homeright sent me their Paintstick EZ-Twist Paint roller to use and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to use! I am not a big contraption type of person and just usually prefer my old school stubborn ways. But this was extremely easy to put together and use.

I put it together and filled up the roller with paint.

It’s great because the handle sucks up the paint from the can and then you just paint the walls or ceiling or whatever you’re doing. You don’t have the mess of a paint tray or anything so it was pretty handy that the paint would just dispense as needed. And just imagine that handle filled up with paint. I wanted to get a picture of it sucking up the paint but I did this when my husband was out of town and I needed 2 hands to do this. And I don’t quite trust my 3 year old with the camera.

I used it to paint our ceiling in the bathroom white.

Although since the grey I used is a very pale grey, it’s hard to tell in the picture that the ceiling is white!  This next one shows it a little better.

Since there were so many places to cut in and not a lot of wall space in our bathroom, I only used the paint stick for the ceiling because I needed a shorter handle for the awkward wall space. I love it for ceilings and it comes with a splash guard as well. The clean up was a bit more than I am used to as far as painting goes because I’m lazy. Duh. And these rollers have to be washed and you have to clean the paint out of the handle of course when you’re done. It is good since it’s reusable and that will save you some money in the long run. So if you don’t mind the extra 5 or 10 minutes for clean up, you’re golden!

I painted the ceiling in Alabaster from Sherwin Williams (same color as our bedroom walls and ceiling and kitchen cabinets), and the walls I painted in Agreeable Grey, also from SW. It’s a very pretty light grey and sometimes it does have a soft blue undertone and it’s very pretty in the bathroom. And it goes well with our navy blue bedroom wall. I especially love how the color looks at night!

And since I told you all I’m painting the vanity coral already, I’m not quite ready to reveal it yet so I have to hide it out of these photos. Hehe.

But aren’t my towels fabulous?

Anthropologie Towel

Yes leave it to Anthropologie to have the perfect colors of anything I ever need. I tried 10 other places first and no luck I swear.  And same for bath rugs. Why doesn’t anyone make cute bath rugs??! Except Anthro of course.

Gah! Oh well. We needed some and ours were about 5 years old anyway. I swear that store was made for me and the colors I want to use. Haha.

I’ll show you more of the new bathroom soon! The vanity came out so pretty and I love it with the crisp clean walls and ceiling. Kill the beige! You know how everyone is all “kill comic sans,” well I’m all for killing the beige! :)

If you have any paint projects coming up try out the HomeRight Paintstick EZ-Twist Paint roller. I think you will like it!  And I’ll show you the vanity soon. :)

xxoo,

  1. It looks great Emily. We have beige everywhere, but it is staying for awhile. While I am loving the grey colors, I am not ready to paint every room in the house just yet-especially since two of our rooms, our stairs and our kitchen have rich chocolate accents (which I do love). Can’t wait to see the vanity!!

    • I understand Lauren. When you are ready to paint maybe you could do a greige like I did in the rest of the house so you can keep all of your chocolate accents. :)

    I Love it. I too am getting rid of all the beige walls in my home. One room at a time. I’m very drawn to the grey pallets. Your bathroom looks very nice!

  3. Ugh. I absolutely love Anthropologie for all of those reasons. I need new bath rugs, I should go there. Love the new color of your walls.

  4. Hahaha KILL COMIC SANS AND BUILDER’S BEIGE! Let’s make t-shirts. Our bathrooms are very similar. I love your color! ;} It’s amazing what a change it can make, right???

  5. Love the color palet..looks beautiful…

  6. Looks great! We painted our family bath gray too (link below)! Love it against crisp white finishes. Love your bath mat too. No one does it better than Anthro!!

  7. Super love your new wall color and the white ceilings! That rug is awesome, and love the towels, so can’t wait to see the vanity the suspense is killing me here. Oh ya I’m right there w/ya Kill the beige!! You did a fantastic job but you always do :)

  8. Very pretty! Look bright and clean vs the beige doesn’t it? I don’t mean the “clean”, clean! :) I know it’s Lysol clean!

    LOVE the towels and rug too! Anthro just can’t be beat. I’m looking for decor for my upcoming move/bathroom and I’m sure I’ll find the perfect items there.

  9. Love that shade you used and the paint stick, very interesting. We’re just looking at paint selection colors here this one is a definite on my list. Hugs, Lori m

  10. Beautiful color combos. You always knock it out of the park.

  11. So fresh and pretty! Love a good paint makeover, they make such a big change :)

  12. It looks fabulous. We have a sea of different shades of taupe in our house, with a few accent walls of a sage green. I am kind of stuck with it, as it is costly to change all of the decor. But… the basement.. now that is a clean slate and one day, when finished… ;)

    We did all of our painting when our house was being built 8.5 yrs ago. We have a Wagner brand paint stick. Oh those things are so handy!! Esp for taller walls. Hubby loves ours. (I do the cutting in and he rollers the paint on.)

  13. That paint stick is the greatest invention since sliced bread. I got my first one almost 20 years ago and ordered a replacement from the company last year. The old one had been stored in the garage for years and the heat and humidity had finally taken a toll. It’s so much faster and neater than using a regular roller. I was so sold on the original one that I ordered online because no other brand would do.

  14. Your bathroom looks great! I can recommend the paint wand, I had one once, a few years ago. My husband threw the roller away after I cleaned it because I left it on the porch to dry and he thought it was junk. I bought another wand because you couldn’t get just a roller and that one got “lost” too. I give up!!

  15. I am already in LOVE with it! I’m searching for an accent color for our Master {which is painted Rain by SW}. I’ve been thinking coral, but seeing it here is making me really like it!

    I can’t wait to see your vanity!

  16. That paint roller thingy looks perfect for someone who’s always stepping in their paint tray!

  1. [...] love it!! The pop of color in there is so fun, and not overwhelming since I went neutral with the grey paint on the walls. Now come say hello to Coral [...]
