Teal Painted Bathroom Makeover

Just dropping in with a quick update of Olivia’s bathroom makeover that I am SO giddy about.

Remember the last time I shared all of my hopes and dreams for this space and it had this lovely all-beige scheme going on?

My #1 goal for this room has been to give it a whole new look for as little mulah as possible since paint can really do the most magic in here.

Throughout this entire house since the day we moved in, we’ve been painting over beige left and right. It’s amazing how much easier we can breathe around here with crisp, white paint that makes every room look squeaky clean. (We still have a long way to go before completely banishing the beige in a lot of other rooms around here, but we’re getting there.)

Along with a healthy dose of Benjamin Moore Simply White, I gave Olivia 8 color samples to pick from for this space, and she chose Magnolia Home Paint in the color Weekend.

Girl’s got good taste, huh? I was so surprised she wanted a color this dark and vibrant.

I loooooove this vibrant, rich teal shade in here. It says “mermaid”, don’t you think? Which is good, since that’s what we’re going for in this space.

So last week, I spent 3 days rolling the ceiling and brushing the trim with Ben Moore Simply White, rolling the walls with the Weekend color, and painting the doors to match the rest in our house with Ben Moore Wrought Iron.

Holy transformation, Batman!

So now the next step to tackle is the beige marblelite on the countertop and tub/shower, which I’ll be sharing more about later with a quick fix.

And as for these vanity cabinets, they’ve probably seen better days. Until we can do a full Phase 2 demo and reno though, we’re going to make them work with lots of sanding, priming, and more painting.

I think I might start painting things in my sleep at this rate.

So now that the powder room is a wrap and the laundry room is finished (that I’ll be sharing this week!!!), we’re kicking off a brand new to-do list for this space.

 Here’s where we are in the bathroom’s to-do list:

  • Paint walls Magnolia Home Paint in Weekend
  • Paint ceiling and trim Ben Moore Simply White
  • Paint doors Ben Moore Wrought Iron
  • Paint marblelite countertop and shower/tub with Rustoleum Tub & Tile kit
  • Sand/prime/paint vanity cabinets
  • Freshen tile grout with grout paint
  • Swap out shower curtain
  • Change vanity light shades
  • Mount shelf
  • Hang art
  • Decorate!

If y’all need me, I’ll be painting… and painting… and maybe doing a little more painting.

  1. I have a question about your doors in the bathroom. Are both sides painted in the Wrought Iron color and are you using that color on all your doors throughout your house?
    I also love the colors that you painted the bathroom and always enjoy all your decorating expertise and the journey you take us on as you redo your home.

    1. Hi Kay! Thank you! Yes, both sides are painted in Wrought Iron. We are slowly working on painting all of the doors in our house this color.

  2. Not sure if I missed something here but it looks like the before was wallpaper? Did you just paint over it? I’ve done that in the past but had to spackle seams so they would not show. Did you do anything to it before painting over it? Lovely color change here. Really nice vision for the space.

    1. It was a stencil before that I just lightly sanded and painted over. If there were wallpaper removal, I might cry. Haha! Thankfully, we have none of that in this house to deal with. Whew! Thanks, Tammy!

  3. OOPS! I actually sent you the wrong link but there are others that would be good. This one is a little racy for a little gal’s bathroom LOL!

    1. Haha! You know, I’ve actually had a really hard time finding vintage-inspired mermaid decor that isn’t like straight up nudity in your face. Bahaha! The mermaid bath salts one below it is really cute though! Thanks so much for the tip! And thank you so much for following along in our journey, Carol. It truly means so much.

  4. Love watching the new house progress! Your daughter has some style for sure!

    I never do this but found this sign on Amazon. It’s the theme right? Check it out! I read your blog and FB posts every day so I feel like I know you. Hopefully you don’t get creeped out!

    I was looking for some vintage signs for my bathroom and I came upon this Mermaid Bath Soap Vintage Metal Sign that could be so cute!

    Anyhoo, love the blog and the progress is so fun to watch.
    Thanks!

  5. When you paint the doors the darker color, do you paint both sides? As in the above teal painted bathroom makeover.

  6. I can’t wait to hear about the vanity painting, we have the same beige-y vanity thing going on in two of our bathrooms. I’ve been following your Insta stories with bated breath!
