Complete Bathroom Makeover: More Pics Coming!
Before / After - Bathroom was blue and brown and dull, now, it pops with Color!
I did a total bathroom makeover using Annie Sloan paint. The walls were done in a wash of Antibes Green. I wanted the walls to look washed out as Antibes Green is a powerful color! No prep was needed. I used about one cup mixed with 1/3 cup water on the whole bathroom walls. It went far. I did some darker, and some lighter. The bathroom had been done in a blah - sky blue gloss. Chalk paint is not gloss but it came out nicely.

Note the towel rack I did in Old White, and now hang my jewelry on it. It looks stunning with necklaces on it and I'll add a picture later. (Pic w/ stuff hanging on it Coming) I was still unsure, and I think I was missing something.
Ah yes, the bathroom cabinet. It was that dark ugly brown from when the cabinet was originally built. I wanted to antique it shabby white, but instead I decided to keep the green theme.

Chalk Paint Bathroom Cabinet using Old Knobs for Handles
It looks much better in person, but it's Antibes Green, Aubusson Blue, and dark waxed. I replaced the handles with vintage knobs. If you want to know how to do this, I'll cover it in a future post. Here are some knobs I just got for the kitchen cabinets.
I will also add a picture soon of the bathroom door I did with this paint, it did wonders! Thank you Annie Sloan. I just adore your paint. It cost me $34.95 a quart and I have plenty left.
