Our Updated Guest Bathroom

We have now been living in our home for almost a year (which is hard to believe) and I had the brilliant idea to paint our upstairs guest bathroom this weekend. It was painted a dark brown color on the walls and the ceiling had been painted a light pink. I opted for a more neutral color on the walls - gray. I don't know why anyone would want to paint a ceiling pink - it was just weird. So away went the pink and in with the white! I also wanted to get rid of the semi-dated light fixture as well. 3 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint later, here are the before/after pictures.

Keep in mind - the bathroom is not 100% how I want it yet - still want to update the mirror and change the shower curtain.

Things I learned this weekend:

-Allow more than 1 day for painting

-NEVER paint a ceiling anything other than white

-Dads come in handy for changing light fixtures

-A leaky toilet can easily be fixed with a few washers

-Make sure to have beer readily available :)
-Make sure hubby makes dinner that night
