Needing Some Change

While I was getting ready for work this morning I looked at Hubs and asked, "Would you care if I repainted the downstairs bathroom? And if that is okay do you care what color I paint the room and/or the hardware that I replace the old with? Basically do you want to have any input on the bathroom remodel that I would to do?!?"

His response, "You do whatever your little heart's desire!"

Good answer Hubs, good answer! :-)

Over the past month or two I came to the conclusion that I hated our downstairs bathroom.  It is painted a burnt orange color which isn't so bad but there is zero natural light so the bathroom is very dark.  If I had my way I would rip out the sink too but that is a little too expensive right now (especially for what I want to do).  So the next best thing I can do is to repaint the bathroom and replace all the hardware (ie- toilet paper holder, towel rack, lighting, and mirror). 

Here are my choices for paint color so far:
 Blue Cloud

Clear Blue Sky

Sea Spray

Tropical Surf

White Lagoon

I would love to go with a fun bright color like:
Pool Party

.......but since my bathroom is already dark due to zero natural light I am afraid that this color will make it feel dark.  And since that is the entire reason I am repainting the bathroom I probably should stay away.  Plus, they always say that a color will go on darker than the sample card.  Sooooooo......I will stick to lighter colors in the blue/green families. 

So what do you all think?!? Which one would you vote for?  

All paint samples are from Home Depot.

I'm getting ready to redo the girls' bathrooms and am NOT looking forward to it... it involves ripping down wallpaper. Yuck! I like the Clear Blue Sky and the Tropical Surf. They are all pretty!

Wow! I love my husband, but sometimes I wish he had no opinion. He always has an opinion. And sometimes it doesn't match mine. LOL

Happy painting!

Blue Cloud is really nice. I tried to put Sea Spray in my Master Bathroom and it turned out almost a gray color. We ended up with Online by SW. Can't wait to see what color you choose!
