We’re making steady progress on our first floor bathroom – the walls and the ceilings (and all the pesky, annoying, soul-sucking touch-ups) are done and we’ve received ALL of our items (including the shelves, which just arrived today, yayyy)! Next up is painting the vanity.
We chose this black paint by Martha Living: Silhouette.
The actual paint is actually blacker than what it seems here. It’s a great, dark black. We got it matched to Behr Ultra and we’ll start priming and painting the vanity this week/weekend. It will take forever, since some recommendations say to wait FIVE DAYS before flipping over the cabinet doors to paint the other side, and then wait ANOTHER FIVE DAYS before drilling in the holes and reattaching them to the vanity. And that doesn’t even include the wait time between priming and painting. Sigh. Can you tell I love instant gratification?
Since we got a gallon of the Silhouette paint, we’re sure we will have some left over. We thought about painting our stairway handrail black:
Of course, the walls will be light gray and that LOL light will be switched out for something… less LOL-ish. We plan to put black frames with white mats all over this wall. And don’t even look at the carpeted stairs, PLEASE.
But then I saw this great stairway at our little beehive:
This is the picture in my head – but I just fell in love with the black stairs! So dramatic.
And then, like fate, I stumbled into this photo while clicking through MadeByGirl:
I do not say SWOON but if I did, I would be saying it here.
I’m pretty sure our stairs is just plywood underneath, but with a good primer and black paint, would it look fine and great? Or am I dreaming? Seriously, I’ve been having some freaky dreams lately. Some of them wake me up in the middle of the night. That is, when Vaquero isn’t licking my face and stabbing me in the throat with his paw.
