Bathroom Update Weekend

With Boho Willow style, my bathroom is certainly the most "willow" room in the house.  Literally - I have a willow tree (the one that's in the header above, actually), a black and tan checkered shower curtain with willow trees, and a few other accents. The walls were painted this deep red when we bought the house, and I love it, but since my awesome husband replaced the tub last weekend, it was time for an update.

Some drywall had to come out with the old tub, and the piece in the back needed to be totally replaced.  I decided rather than trying to match the red paint, since I now had a nice, new tub calling my name to take a soak, I needed to freshen up the entire room and go for color. This picture from our vacation was my inspiration.

So, I spent yesterday gathering supplies and priming the red out.  Luckily, it only took two coats of KILZ white primer to get rid of that red!  And even better, we have bead board wainscoting on the bottom 2/3 of the walls, already white, so I got the Frog Tape and taped away hoping I ONLY have to paint the drywall.  By the end of the day, my walls will be a beautiful turquoise - Benjamin Moore Graceful Sea - the beadboard will be white, the walls at the top of the shower walls will be tiled, and my bathroom will be (hopefully) gorgeous! 

Stay tuned for the reveal and the always appreciated before and afters!  (well, kind of... I forgot to take true "befores", but you'll see enough!)
