This is how the world looks outside my window, so it’s a pretty safe bet that I’m not going out there unless the house catches on fire. (Knock knock knocking on wood.) Since I am staying in today I decided it would be a good idea to disrupt the flow of the household and destroy a room. Which room you ask?
Or more accurately, this One!
It started innocently enough, the wallpaper looked a little flakey and before you know it I was pulling on it like an O.C.D. corn husker. As Kyle walked past the bathroom, I saw all of his hopes for a relaxing day dashed as he uttered the words, “So, you’re doing this right now, huh?” And he immediately stepped inside and started scrubbing glue off the walls–my sweet
hostage of partner in home decor.
I found this perfect mistint for $5! And it's probably the best paint that you can choose for a bathroom. It has No VOC, which means fumes and toxins are practically non-existant, and that's great for a small room. Plus it's durable and mildew resistant, which provoked me to use it at the top of the shower.
This is (roughly) the color.
Just a quick note, if you are going to buy caulk make sure to read the back of the tube before you buy it, just in case a caulking gun is necessary. There definitely are caulks that can be squirted directly from the tube, unlike the kind that I bought. No worries, I just squeezed off the lid and used my handy, dandy scraper to apply and smooth it. The results are pretty much the same, except it took 25 minutes longer. But as my dad said, "When it comes to caulk, the more, the merrier." So pile it on.

This photo represents a very important part of any mini-overhaul. This is the part where you examine every decision that you've made that brought you to this moment, and you wonder (as you look through the dirty mirror) what you did wrong and how you'll get through it. Then you slap the defeatist part of your brain in the face and tell it to go back to bed.
Even half painted, it's still an improvement.
And finally, the view from the best seat in the house...
