When I first met with my recent client Rose, she wasn’t completely certain what kind of paint finish she wanted in her recently remodeled bathrooms, but she knew she wanted something distinctive to add flair to the relatively small spaces.
Both bathrooms were previously faux painted with a ragged technique, but the colors no longer worked with Rose’s new tile and vanities and the style looked a little outdated next to the more contemporary choices she made for the cabinetry, counter and sink. To address this, she knew she wanted an updated decorative painting finish using gray as the main color.
Working with Rose, we looked at multiple grays and a selection of faux finishes. After looking at some of my previous work and the new tile in the bathrooms, Rose decided she wanted something that picked up on the texture of the tile and liked some of the “concrete-look” finishes I had done.
To make sure we had everything dialed in just right, my next step was to do some test boards showing this finish in some of the color options Rose liked. After looking through the options, Rose made her selection and I was ready to move forward with the project!
Since the rooms were small, it only took me a couple of days to make the transformation complete – and Rose was thrilled with the result! Below are pictures showing the bathroom before and after this decorative painting project.
