When my husband and I bought our house a few years ago we were blessed with two bathrooms and since we get up at the same time I was incredibly thankful. However, I was never thrilled with the mismatched colour scheme in the guest bath I used every morning. Eventually we’re planning a remodel but for the time being a little paint can go a long way.
TIP: When cleaning NEVER mix ammonia and bleach. The fumes can be deadly.
TIP: Fresh latex paint doesn’t like water! Try not to use the bathroom for 12-24 hours to let the paint dry well and no harsh scrubbing for 2-3 weeks until the paint is fully cured.
Whenever my dad would go away on a trip my mom would get busy rearranging the furniture. I paint. And since I don’t mind the occasional bowl of cereal for dinner there is plenty of time after work for a little DYI. Last night’s project? Scrub the bathroom grout clean (a wash with ammonia and water followed by a scrub with paste made from baking soda and water) then tape off the grout lines (painstaking) and paint with a concrete paint in a light gray to match the wall tiles better. Since grout is pretty porous a concrete paint (I used Muralo’s Quik Tred) works well and will be easy to keep clean.
