my apartment progress… bathroom


Remember when I said I wanted something dark and dramatic for the bathroom wall? I eventually decided on a dark olive green but I’m not happy with how it came out. It looks a lot better in the pic than in person…

I don’t like the way the white shelving brackets stand out so much and I also don’t like the sheen of the eggshell finish (the larger samples only come in eggshell finish). I’m thinking of repainting it white… what do you think??

  1. yeah the sheen of it is not good. and the color just isn't….doing anything positive. maybe a brighter shade? but in a matte finish. maybe a light lavender or a soft blue?….but the shelves SHOULD stand out, they're totally fabulous! great job considering the space issue!

  2. I think you are right that it doesn't look that bad in the picture, but I know if I was in your shoes, I would also want to repaint it if I wasn't really happy with it. But I would be so boring and probably paint it white!

  3. I'm searching for something for the large frame now. but will most likely be black and white. I may use my new stencils to create a subtle pattern for the back wall… will keep you posted!

  4. That is a shiny eggshell… I don't mind the color though. Maybe just do another coat in a matte version? or, a coat of something slightly more grey?

  5. White!!!!!Or maybe an aquatic blue-green color, or a light gray with a touch of beige (if the wall isn't white, I would paint the shelving brackets too)

  6. I think the shelves make it look heavy. The color would probably work in flat and w/o the shelves or go white on the walls with them. Maybe roll the towels too.

  7. The boldness of the color is a nice direction but I think that maybe there is a little too much yellow in the paint. How about something greyer with a satin finish? (Not sure I would move down to flat in a bathroom).
