That one time, when I painted the bathroom..For the 8th time.

I have a commitment problem.

Luckily for my husband, it’s only when paint is involved, and sometimes couches. Whew.


I was never really sold on our bathroom before. The blue was just too…. baby blue for me. And you know I’m as big of a fan of putting a bird on it as the next lady but, ’twas getting old. And, I’ve had these pretty shweet prints from World Market from BEFORE we even bought our house that still had the plastic on them. It was time to put them up!

But, not with blue.

This is how I like to hint to Jared that I’ll be painting.

Via text.

Me: Hey, do we have any Sandstone Cove left?

Jared: Seriously, what are you painting now?

Me: Stop jumping to conclusions I’m not painting anything. I’m not even home

Jared: K

Jared: Where are you?

Me: Home depot. I needed a paintbrush.

Ha. :) So I thought we had sandstone cove, my favorite neutral and I just purchased a quart of flagstone grey for something else I was working on a few brushes and went on my merry way.

Well, come to find out we had a half gallon left of SC.


So I did what any sane- impatient person would do and mixed them together.


And, it actually came out pretty nice. Lord help me if I ever chip it or need to repaint it.

I would like to welcome you to Jared’s coming home to a new bathroom face.


I know. It’s awesome. THAT is why I do what I do. :)

Yes that’s the towel bar I used for a paint stirrer. Improvising, it’s my spiritual gift.

Other little tid bits before I share the whole thing

    You are hilarious Rachelle! Love the new color. Although I liked the blue too. Can’t wait to see the finished product.

    Hurry and stash something you spilled paint on! Your cooler turned out lovely! I once had hobby lobby match an improvised color off the paint stick. It matched perfectly:)

    Oh my word, I literally laughed out loud that you used the towel bar as a stir stick. SO glad that I’m not the only one who rolls like that. Drives my husband crazy. But you get a bee in your bonnet, and there’s no time to waste finding proper supplies – mojo is flowing! It looks great – can’t wait to see the rest!

    Paint looks awesome so far! I was just at Home Depot today asking for extra paint sticks because I was so tired of using left over quarter round to stir paint!
