Not really. But it looks awful and I'd rather it didn't when people see our place.
Upstairs leaks into our bathroom. Despite several attempts (and 2 huge holes in the ceiling within 2 years to try to "figure out" the problem), it still leaks. So back in February, a nice fellow came at 8:30AM on Saturday (sigh), to plaster in the new, useless hole that yielded no information. After 3 hours of having no bathroom, we decided to tell him we'd prime the room ourselves, and he was on his merry way.
So it sat like this for a few weeks.
Plaster. And one lightbulb. hot.
simply a mess.
You may notice that the walls are a high gloss shade of green. But high gloss in bathrooms/kitchens = good. High gloss in bathrooms with disastrous walls? Not so good. The gloss highlights each flaw, and truth be told, I was also sick of the green. I had slapped it on quickly after we moved in, so now that there was plaster crap all over the walls, it was time to change the color.
And then I saw the color Simply Irrestible in House Beautiful - and i COULD'NT resist (nerd).
I am going to put in some stripes methinks. Hopefully I do not singlehandedly destroy something that's pretty much already destroyed.
I did start painting yesterday. I did primer and two coats, and then I quit - for no other reason than that I was tired. And I wanted to sit around for the rest of the afternoon and read magazines.
I took a trip to Homegoods when my 11am student was sick, and here is the new shower curtain I picked up!
The color compliments Ben's Simply so well - and I figured it was cool because it had some nice accent colors I could play with, too.
Oh yeah, and here's a blurry picture of the price. Once I figure out the right way to take pictures of things, I'll let you know.
So hopefully tonight I'll get around to putting on that final coat. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...
