Hey there!  I am so happy to finally get around to my guest bathroom.  I haven’t done a thing to it since we moved in 3 years ago and it’s the one room we have the most visitors to!

This is the before…. I don’t like the paint color, there is no natural light and it looks like the after-thought it was;)

Here it is after the completed first phase of the makeover.

I chose Dutch Boy Route 66-f14-3 in a satin finish for the walls.  (I was inspired by Whit’s living room walls😉  This bathroom is very small with zero natural light and this color was perfect to lighten and brighten it up:)

I also framed the existing builder grade mirror with preprimed, MDF, 1×4″ boards.  I painted them with a latex paint that I had matched to my trim.  If you would like the full tutorial on the mirror framing, you can check out my Master Bathroom Mirror.  It is a cheap and easy way to fancy up those builder-grade mirrors;)

I’ll be back to share the updates as I get to them.  I am so motivated to make this a welcoming guest bathroom and I can’t wait to add to it!

Thanks so much!

  1. I LOVE it! I have 2 rooms with walls a similar color (as your original) and I want them painted SO bad! I don’t like the color cast it leaves. I love how the gray REALLY lightens up the room! It’s fabulous!
