A New Hallway Toilet Self-importance Colour (Goodbye Orange, Hi there Pink)

I used to be very quick on time for engaged on home initiatives yesterday, so in deciding what I needed to do with my restricted out there time, I landed on portray the hallway lavatory vainness. I’ve been residing with that orange vainness for 4 years now, and disliking it extra with every passing day. I made a decision I needed to change the orange for pink, and I lastly have my pink lavatory vainness!

Right here’s how the lavatory with the orangish vainness has seemed since its makeover in 2019.

However when the brand new vainness countertop was put in firstly of this week, it seemed even worse to me. (And it all the time seems like a brighter orange when standing within the room than when viewing it from the hallway.)

When the countertop was put in, I wasn’t positive how for much longer I might stand to have a look at that vainness colour. Nicely, I discovered the reply to that query yesterday. 😀

I bought material to make a brand new bathe curtain for the lavatory (you can find the fabric hereaffiliate hyperlink), so I took that to House Depot to discover a paint colour. I narrowed it down to 2 colours — Behr Glamorous (the one on the left) and Behr Ballerina Tutu (the one on the fitting). I made a decision to go along with Glamorous.

I’m so glad that the one I favored higher was known as Glamorous and never Ballerina Tutu. I’d should reject a colour named Ballerina Tutu on precept alone. 😀 I’ve developed an actual love for pinks, however a pink colour known as Ballerina Tutu is a bit too on the nostril.

This was a comparatively fast and straightforward challenge as a result of (1) the vainness isn’t that large, and (2) it was beforehand painted with latex paint and was by no means topcoated with a transparent end. In order that signifies that to be able to change the colour, all I needed to do was give the whole lot a really fast sanding with 220-grit sandpaper, wipe off the sanding mud, after which brush the brand new paint proper over it. I used to be past thrilled to see that orange colour go! Right here’s a side-by-side comparability of the brand new Glamorous and the outdated Tandoori, though the brand new colour remains to be moist (and subsequently, brighter than the ultimate dry colour).

I gave the vainness two coats of paint, and I painted it with a 2-inch brush. And since I used to be utilizing a model new quart of paint, I didn’t even add Floetrol. The paint was excellent proper out of the can, and it went on very easily.

I didn’t even take away the doorways or drawer fronts to color. I merely painted the fronts and edges of the doorways first, after which opened the doorways and painted the backs of the doorways and the cupboard body. I did the identical with the drawers. I painted the entrance of the drawer fronts first, after which opened them and painted the again of the drawer fronts, after which painted the cupboard body. After which I left the whole lot open to dry.

And right here it’s utterly painted and dry.

I’ve new door and drawer pulls on order, they usually’ll be right here tomorrow. I went with these very simple pulls in Champagne Bronze (affiliate hyperlink) to match the brand new Delta Arvo single hole faucet in Champagne Bronze (affiliate hyperlink) that I purchased for the lavatory. I’ll be swapping out the entire silver/nickel steel fixtures for Champagne Bronze, however I haven’t gotten round to buying the remaining but.

So right here’s a have a look at the Behr Tandoori that I’ve had for the final 4 years, and the brand new Behr Glamorous. This pink lavatory vainness simply makes me smile!

Once I did the unique lavatory rework in 2015, I painted the vainness a teal colour.

After which in 2019, I gave the lavatory a extra colourful makeover, and that’s once I went with the Behr Tandoori. The entire motive I went with that colour is as a result of it’s within the material I used for the bathe curtain. And the explanation I went with that bathe curtain material is as a result of I needed one thing extra colourful, and I simply occurred to have that material available.

I actually did love that loo makeover for some time, however as the remainder of the rooms began coming collectively, and I began to naturally gravitate extra in the direction of pinks as a substitute of orangish corals, this vainness and the bathe curtain appeared manner too harsh for me. And since they are often seen from the lounge and the music room, they actually clashed with the lounge curtains and the music room sofa.
