Bathroom remodel, part 1

This weekend, Dave and I started work on remodeling our master bathroom (#59 on the 101 in 1,001 list). This project will be occurring in multiple stages. The first part was painting. We bought the above shower curtain a while ago, and decided to choose a paint color that matches it. We choose the darker of the blue-gray color for our walls. The painting this weekend went so smoothly. I taped up the room while Dave was at work. He came home and we did the first coat on Saturday. We let that dry and Dave did the second coat on Sunday and that's where the smooth sailing came to an end.

Dave went to rip off the tape and up came a whole patch of paint....the patch was about the size of a square foot. Great. All of our hard work trying to do a quality paint job. Peeled of like a banana. And tossed in to a garbage can. Probably about six layers of paint all stuck together and just came off the wall. Have you ever heard of such a thing??

But he's a hero. He stayed positive and got out some sand paper and smoothed the edges. Got out the can of paint, and for the third time in not even as many days, started painting another coat on the wall. And you can't even really tell...unless you look really closely and know what you're looking for.

And someday, when I decide not to be lazy, I'll post the pics of our little home improvement project. First I have to finish putting the room back together, so I can take the 'after' photo. Stay tuned!

  1. Isn't home remodeling fun?! We have found that it is never as simple as just throwing on a coat of paint?!

    PS- there were about 5 coats of paints on the tile aroung the counters in our kitchen, so I hear you, lots of paint!


What are your thoughts? I'd love to hear.
