I bought a sample size of Valspar Bright Parrot Satin Color ($2.98, can't go wrong!). Ya'll know my DIY style by now...I don't prep or sand my projects. I just jump right in. I started sticking this paint right on top of the old gold paint. Sure, it was tough to stick at first so I dabbed a rought version of a top coat and let it dry. Then I went back with the brush and could get a smoother second and third coat of the green. The sample sizes only come in limited finishes (satin) so I added an extra gloss with some clear polyurethane that I had from a previous DIY project. This gave the finished green a shiny coat.
Up close of the bamboo mirror in the mudroom bathroom. Keep in mind, this bathroom has not been styled yet because I've been focusing so much on the mudroom itself. But this Bright Parrot green is going to go great with the Meg Braff green from the wallpaper in the mudroom. Eventually I'll think of something great for the wall in here (thinking a solid paint color other than beige).
I borrowed my Gurglepot from Kennebunkport for this shot. And the below view from the mudroom into the bathroom reminds me from a scene down the long narrow hotel hallway of The Shining or something! Again, the bathroom is not styled yet except for the lone bamboo mirror so bear that in mind! But you can see how the mirror now ties in with the green from the mudroom.
And here's the lil ole mirror that was in there before. (Along with a photobomb from the vivster in the below left part of the mirror).
Coming soon, I have received two grosgain ribbon trims for the nailhead ribbon project I'm going to do in the mudroom and I want your opinion on which color to use! Get ready to vote, ya'll!
Hope you had a wonderful memoria day weekend!
