Welcome to my crazy life. Once again I am attempting a 365 project, one picture every day for a year. Comments and feedback are always welcome. Thanks for stopping by :)

Day 4 Sponge painting gone wrong

Today the renovations on the bathroom continue.  I have taken all the wallpaper border off with the help of my trustee spatula (which worked better than the real scraper) and a little hot water and fabric softener. Who knew liquid fabric softener was so multi-purposeful!

I had Bill take the cabinet off the wall so I could prep for painting and found the oddest bathroom decor I have ever seen.   White semigloss with pink and blue splattered sponge paint.

  Who the heck would do that to a bathroom?  Then as I was working away I discovered what was behind the sponge painting gone wrong.....  Green and yellow plaid paneling.  Okay so maybe the pink seashells I was taking off were not that bad.

I still have not decided between bright green, bright blue or brown paint.  I am sick of having no colour so I thought I could get fun with the bathroom.  But since it has no window I am worried about it looking really small.   I also want to actually finish this project in the next few days which mean I will not be replacing the vanity since Bill isn't home to help.  I thought I could paint it but discovered the doors are made of plastic....can that be painted?    I will be putting down a new floor but that one will have to wait till Bill is off.  And that also means if I get enough paint on it it will HAVE to be replaced :)
