The bathroom has already been through a couple of paint colors, and while we ending up not loving the first color we painted it (more on that below), it was certainly better than the way we inherited it. And I’m sorry to say I don’t have a true before picture, but here’s the info for your visual: the baseboards, trim, vanity, and cabinet were all a natural, unpainted wood and the walls were a deep beige color that had some texture to them.

We initially painted the bathroom a mustardy yellow (Glidden’s Summer Day in eggshell). It was a beautiful color but it just didn’t work with the lighting in there. Here’s that version:










Realizing that color wasn’t working, we opted for the gorgeous grayish beige (Valspar’s Oatlands Subtle Taupe in flat) that we used in the hallway and living room (those pictures to come eventually). It worked so much better with the lighting, and we ended up with this:

We then painted the vanity, added crown molding, brought in a longer shower curtain, and raised the shower curtain rod. This is our latest iteration.

More changes are likely to come.

      Hey! Thank you! How fun y’all are redoing it. The color is Valspar’s Oatlands Subtle Taupe. We’ve used it in three places in our house (living room, hallway, and bathroom) that all get different light and it looks great in all of them. Hope that helps!

        I just updated the post to include information about the paint colors. Thanks for reminding me, Patty!
