bathroom makeover #cbias

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 12:12 PM
I've been talking a lot of giving our whole house a makeover in the past few months. One place I neglected to mention was our guest bathroom, or the girls bathroom really. We decorated it nice and I loved the creamy yellow on the wall but we never that much to it.
This weekend we decided it was time so we ran to Wal-Mart to purchase Glidden Better Homes & Gardens Collection paint to bring a whole new look to the dark bathroom.


Our current shower curtain is green and brown and fairly new so we thought we'd leave it and just get paint to match.
After putting the pop out paint circle on the wall back at home we decided green wasn't a good idea. We liked the brown though. We chose a darker brown and John then suggested blue.
The blue was way too dark (the color on the right) once we saw the test spot on the wall so to keep the room from feeling too small we added white to it so it would lighten up a bit. I promise the blues don't look as "slate-y" as they do in these pictures.
We also decided to add to hardware in the room. I was surprised to see that Better Homes & Garden made their own line.
Here was the bathroom before

And here is the bathroom now!


We still have some things to add but I just wanted to get this post up to show you the paint job we did!
We took it from a yellow cream base to dark brown with a blue accent wall. The brown is called Aromatic Coffee and the blue is Bluebird's Egg (with a little white added to it) and of course both paints are from Glidden's Better Homes & Gardens Collection.
A see through shower curtain helps bring a ton more light which we love.
To see more pictures of the finished bathroom check out my ThisMoment story. There you can see the accessories better.

We are so happy with our new bathroom paint and Glidden! There was barely any odor what so ever, it is washable so when we made tiny mistakes on the tile or mirror it came right off when it was dried!


This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias. All opinions are my own and we did all the hard work using our Glidden paint.

Oh wow, that looks great! I've never seen blue in a bathroom before but I really like it. I've been wondering what to do with my bathroom, now I'm thinking a light blue might look good.

Wow! Are you sure that's the same bathroom? It looks so much bigger and open. I like how the shower curtain lets light come in making it look brighter. Great job!!

I have been wanting to re-do mine too. We just got a new tub and toilet, but now I want to paint and do more.

Great job!
