You may recall a few months ago I did a little makeover on my powder bath . Mostly it involved paint and framed agates .
I liked the agates and Chelsea Gray is one of my favorite paint colors but something about the bathroom still felt a little boring to me . I wanted something bolder and more fun .
Something like this Hinson & Co. wallpaper .
So I painted my bathroom white again and then I let the paint fly . Literally .
Achieveing this look was actually a lot harder than I thought . I didn't want thick globs of paint on the wall because if I change my mind again I don't want to have to sand everything down to get a flat surface . To get the look without the thickness, I decided to use watercolors for the splatter paint . The colors are beautiful but because the paints are thinner they tend to drip on vertical surfaces . I had to get just enough water on my brush to make the paint flick on to the wall but not too much or else it would run .
It made a HUGE mess but I am in love with the result . It's exactly what I wanted . It's completely unexpected and random . From afar the it looks surprisingly subtle, but up close there is a great mix of shape, color and pattern .
I can't wait to hear people's reactions when they use the restroom . I know this look is a little crazy so it won't be for everyone . Maybe most of you actually prefer the before pic? Ha. It's ok if you do : ) Even my 4 year old thought I was nuts .
