Letting the sun shine in

The girl's bathroom is a project that I've been working on (off and on) for a couple of months.
I finally finished the last of the painting this morning - yeah!
This was my first project using our new (kijiji purchased) mitre saw. How did I live without it?

It all started with the shower curtain, Hannah's choice, which led to the colour scheme (yellow, grey and white) which led to the decision to do wainscoting.
As you can see it didn't take much to give this blah L-shaped space some much needed character. Simple changes added some simple fun charm.
If you listen real hard you can hear the birds chirping;)

Handyman likes! Again ... amazing what some creativeness, paint, work and of course 'the mitre saw' can accomplish. Looks great.

A great gray is hard to find. This is a very good one! I also recommend Sherwin Williams' Dorian Gray.

I definitely like the after pictures better.

We have so many things to do in our house it's not funny.
