Down the street and around the corner approximately 1.2 miles from my house is my Sherwin-Williams store.
I love my Sherwin-Williams store.
We are best friends, my store and I.
When I walk in the door the paint colors wave.
The store employees greet me by name and ask me what project I’m working on and answer any questions I have.
Every. Single. One.
It’s a wonderful place.
There are rows and rows and rows of color inspiration.
And amazing color combinations.
And rows of project sheets just like this one.
All my favorite colors are there.
Like Anonymous SW 7046 and Mindful Gray SW 7016 and Coral Reef SW 6606 and Alabaster SW 7008 and Sherwin Williams Sandbar.
And the paint professionals? They are helpful and kind and knowledgeable and have even suggested some new paint colors that I hadn’t really been introduced to before and helped me explore these colors with their ColorSnap® system, which made it easy to pick just the right one. They also have a free program called PaintPerks® that you can sign up for. As a member, the information about the paint and colors you buy is stored for later and you’ll also get exclusive member benefits.
So when I started renovating the bathroom that was right behind these doors, I knew exactly where to turn.
Creating an ensuite bathroom in calm neutral colors that would hold up to the steam and excess water in a bathroom environment.
Here’s where we started.
When you walked through those doors in the picture you would enter a closet that was behind this wall.
It was challenging.
To enter the bathroom you had to go outside the bedroom and walk through a door on the other side of the bathroom.
We wanted to open up this wall and create an entrance from the closet.
That way we would have more privacy.
So we knocked down a few walls and now?
Now when you open those twin doors right there.
We kept the closet on one side and on the other is the new entrance to the bathroom.
Here’s what it looks like when you round the corner into the bathroom.
And here’s the view standing in the closet area looking into the bathroom with the new paint color, Sherwin Williams Sandbar.
Here’s the before.
And here’s the after with Sherwin Williams Sandbar from the same angle.
I LOVE the new paint color.
It’s Sandbar SW 7547.
And thanks to the professionals at my neighborhood Sherwin-Williams store, I found the BEST tip for painting bathrooms.
They recommended semi-gloss paint in the Duration Home line.
Using semi-gloss paint on the walls helps to protect the bathroom from steam and water.
I love Sherwin Williams Sandbar on the wall. The countertops are stone and the tile is grouted with light gray grout and the trim is Extra White SW 7006.
There are still a few changes we want to make—like replacing the carpet in the bedroom and this closet area and walling off the door on the other side.
But for now?
I’m just going to savor this view.
And these changes.
And this amazing bathroom refresh.
Brought to you by my friends right around the corner…
…at my neighborhood Sherwin-Williams store. 🙂
