Yellow Sunshine

While I was busy at work yesterday, Nate spent his day off stuck in the bathroom.

No, he wasn’t sick…  He was busy playing with tape and yellow paint.

We had yet to paint one wall in our house as of yesterday, and the white walls were beginning to make us go cross-eyed.  So Nate decided to surprise me; and when I came home from work, he was nearly finished painting a cheery coat of yellow paint on the downstairs bathroom walls.

It’s amazing how the little room went from drab to fab in just a matter of a few hours.  Well, maybe not fab quite yet…  But it’s showing major progress.

Even Stitchy was a bit excited…  Maybe..

The only frustrating part of the evening was that it turns out there’s no support beam behind the sink, so the light we bought for the bathroom is too heavy and won’t hang properly.

(It also doesn’t match the new mirror we bought, so that’s two strikes against it).  But, hey, minor set-backs, and we’ll get a new light soon!

Hopefully I’ll find us some curtains over the next couple of days and then something to hang on the empty space above the toilet… And — wow — we’ll actually be done a room!

Feels good, my friends.  Real good!  🙂

    Looks great!! I like the colour a lot. We painted one of our spare bedrooms that colour. I thought it was way to bright at first but now I love it and think it’s fantastic.

    You’re definitely going to need some curtains for that window though. Nothing like giving the neighbourhood a show when you’re in the bathroom!

  2. What a bright and cheerful room!

    That’s a great color! How sweet was he to do all that work? Bathrooms are difficult to paint. Good work, Nate!
