ta-da!

Here it is, our freshly-repainted bathroom. Sherwin-Williams calls this color "Liveable Green." It is a lot more liveable than the peeling-off cream color we had before:

sorry for the lame photo. there's not much natural light in there - i'll try again on a brighter day.

I am really happy with it - it is very clean and bright looking. You probably already read all about the trials and travails that went into these bathroom walls, which have resulted in a laundry list of back pain, sore knees and - worst of all! - achy wrists (from the death grip I kept that paint scraper in for so many hours, I guess). Whine, whine, but the bathroom looks fabulous.

The wrist problems have kept me away from doing much knitting, though, so unfinished projects are lying strewn about the house feeling neglected.

...and here's a suspicious-looking gauge swatch for a sweater I'd like to knit for myself. I wanted to get it rolling before taking off for a conference on the 28th, because I'll have lots of airplane time, airport time, conference presentation time, and of course late-night cable-watching hotel room time in which to get a sweater done. But only if my wrists will cooperate!

Maybe I should go soak them in a hot bath... in my bee-yoo-tee-ful bathroom.

  1. the bathroom looks fabulous! i like the lower half trim too... much inspiration for our dismal bathroom that we are a bit scared of fixing. though getting an estimate from tile folks did inspire some DIY dreaming...

  2. Congrats on the bathroom. I'm suffering through a bedroom re-painting job right now. It feels so awesome when it's done though. You walk in the room, and it sort of surprises you.
