Spare Bathroom Paint Update

We finished painting the spare bathroom last weekend and I have to say, I forgot how much painting SUCKS!  It's so weird, we used to enjoy doing it.  In our old house, which was larger than the one we have now, with huge cathedral ceilings throughout, we painted the whole interior.  And I don't recall it being that much of a pain.  Now, painting one very small room is just plain terrible.   I think it was mostly because of all the things to paint around; trim, mirror, towel rack, medicine cabinet, light, etc.  Plus we put down a coat of primer first, so it was really a lot of work. 

I had to remove the old dual elongated shower rod and patch the holes and that part went much better than expected, I thought that would be the hard part, but nope.  It was so not fun.  We put off our plan to do the front weekend a bit.  We just didn't have the motivation to do that two weekends in a row.  There is no major urgency, so we'll do it some weekend when the weather isn't so good. 

We like how it turned out, especially after Marla did the decorating.  She got a new shower curtain, bath mats, pictures and some decorative towels, all for under $60 at Home Goods.  And she did a great job.  It's hard to get good pictures and hard to tell there is yellow in the shower curtain, but it looks very nice in person.
