Bathroom Revamp

4 Materials
3 Days

So we renovated our whole house 2 years ago when we bought it & the paint we got for the downstairs bathroom was meant to be a mint green but ended up a duck egg blue!!! I never liked it but it has taken 2 years to get around to finding the perfect navy - from Crown called ink blue!!!!

myself and my mam spent 3 days painting it!!!

let me know what you guys think!!

Here’s our bathroom before

Another before pic - it’s a strange shape bathroom but we can’t do anything about that!!!!

Crown Paint in Ink Blue - it took 4 coats & some parts need a 5th coat I think!!!

Cutting in!!!

First coat!!

First coat done!

after I had did the first coat (nearly to the ceiling May I add)

I decided to bring the white down onto the navy - 9 inches as our ceilings are very high & I felt it been all navy was a bit much!!!

yes I wish I had of decided that on day one before starting to paint!!!

but we’re here now and have to keep going!!!!

So I got my level & pencil

Got my tape

measured 9 inches down - marked it in a few spots

Got my level

as straight as I could get it & drew a line all across the wall!

i then got tape (my masking tape wasn’t great it had gotten damp in the shed) so I used normal tape!!!

and hoped for the best!!!

followed the line all across the wall with the tape

A view of the tape before the paint

get Your white paint & roll it!!!

let it dry & do a second coat

Coat number 2

Continue all the above steps all along every wall!!!

Using a small brush with the navy go along the line where the tape was!!!

Continue to go around the edges with your brush

At this stage I did a third coat of white to cover the excess navy!!!!

I used a roller once I had done all the cutting in!!!!

letting each coat dry in between

And after 3 coats of white & 4 coats of navy it’s done!!!!

I am loving how the ink blue turned out!
