Happy Monday! I’m coming at you today with a little update on the bathroom! A LOT has changed in there since I last talked about it HERE. Since it won’t be entirely completed for a couple of weeks, I wanted to share with you where we’re at so far.
The first thing we did in here was paint the entire room Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace. I started out by painting the wall SW Pure White as shown in the design plan but you guys… There’s something up with that paint. I started using that color because we have a whole gallon of it but it was either mixed wrong or the builders told me the wrong color. It was so warm compared to our white trim (which I was told was SW Pure White) and while I really wanted to avoid spending the money on more paint, I also am a firm believer in only doing what you LOVE in your home. I knew that if I painted the whole bathroom that color I’d walk in every time and think, “Dang it, I wish this were a more stark white.” so I bit the bullet and bought more white paint except this one I don’t regret whatsoever.
I wish my entire house could be painted BM Chantilly Lace. In fact, I might try to convince Stephen to paint our bedroom this color. I don’t want to say it’s the perfect white because everyone has their own definition of that but to me it’s just about as perfect as it can get. It’s a stark, bright white without yellow undertones but also doesn’t creep on the blue end. If that makes any sense at all…
Next up we (by we I really mean Stephen) painted the vanity. The dude worked his tail off to get this done on his short timeline! Unfortunately, we had a few snags in the process but that’s okay! We got it all figured out so that you guys don’t have to. HA! I’ll write an entire post about what happened and how to paint a vanity in the next couple of weeks. Even though it’s technically “completed”, I’m not considering it done yet because I’m giving it time for the paint to cure. We also have a few spots we need to touch up as you can see in the photos. Right now we’re actually not using this bathroom and have a fan blowing on it 24/7 to try to help with this process and to avoid messing it up at all in the meantime.
Installing the faucets and the mirrors were relatively simple. The only hiccup we ran into there was that the builders didn’t center one of the original lights so we had to patch the hole to make it center.
Here’s how the bathroom looked before (very GRAY!):

Isn’t it amazing what a little contrast will do to a space? Stephen will be back home this week (YAY!!!) so we’ll be able to finish it up and add some really fun final touches. I can’t wait to get them in the mail and share them with you guys. They’re SO GOOD!
Thank you all for reading this post and for your support! It’s so appreciated.
