{Pool Bathroom} The Doors are Painted!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

You guys have shown that you love to give your opinion! And I love it...your feedback is invaluable. I mean really, not many people in my 'real' life would humor me while I debated the merits of green or blue lamps, and navy or pink doors!

These decisions are important, right!? And even though your votes put blue as top choice for door colors in our Pool Bathroom.....

The hinges need to be painted navy.
It wasn't enough to convince me I was completely crazy for going pink! In fact, blue beat pink by only 10 votes! I love them....but at the same time I'm not so sure. But it's only paint, so if I'm not petting them once all the accessories are in place, I'll just paint them again!

This tiny space is really hard to photograph, and the door color was found on the Ooops Shelf at Home Depot, so I can't give you a name. But it's a reddish pink, similar to Babygirl's bed.

This totally random and boring picture shows a true depiction of the door, wall and ceiling colors.

And you may recall we had some problems pop up after we thought the renovation was complete. Turns out the gap in the frameless shower door was too wide, so a good amount of water was escaping. I was ready to suggest demand a new door (thanks to your encouragement), but maybe not after seeing their fix.

I assumed a strip of silicone sweep running up the center of the glass would look horrible. But truthfully, you can't even see it! Mr. Glass Guy told us to live with it for a bit, and if we don't like it he'll refit the glass.

And the damage made to the dry wall by the escaped water?


Our rockstar contractor tiled over it to protect the wall from any future escapees.

I also gave the painter a free pass on the walls (he used a nappy roller when we were going for a smooth lacquer finish), but told him to remember this when it comes time to paint my Dining Room! He is coming back for all the necessary touch-ups though. (See, I'm not a complete pushover!)

The light fixture came with shades, so I'm trying it with and without. I thought the round bulbs looked more modern, but turns out, they look a little (ahem) phallic.

Now it's time to get busy accessorizing. And I know some of you are balking at the Crayola box happening in here. But keep in mind, it's the bathroom right off the pool...so a certain amount of creative freedom is allowed. I hope.

Pin It!

  5. Love the pink door. It's a great color combo that I never would have had the guts to do. And you even found a navy and pink rug!!! I think the light needs some sort of shade.

  8. Actually.... I love the pink door. It's funny... I liked the navy walls and voted for a navy door... but now after seeing the pink door... I'm not digging the walls as much. Still love the navy woodwork and vanity. Looking at that great rug... I'm thinking white walls would really pop.

  15. That is a very happy looking bathroom. I voted for blue (I remembered) but I like the pink. And the shower fix really looks good. I was surprised because we had a similar problem and when they tried to remedy it this way it looked awful.

  16. As someone who actually works in decorative plumbing, we have a joke that we shouldn't worry too much when people buy cheap fixtures...they will be back soon enough when their cheap pieces aren't functioning properly and they have come to their senses.
