the bathroom.

This one was a breeze.  It took two coats of Behr’s Dark Denim to get a solid cover and it was worth it.  I don’t think the pictures on this one clearly show how stale the former blue bathroom was.  It reminded me of a hospital room and didn’t really go with any of my existing bathroom accoutrement.  Dark Denim was the closest navy blue to the background of the Rifle Paper Co wrapping paper that I had from lining the kitchen drawers and cabinets (more on that here).  I used the leftovers to line the closet shelves in the bathroom, again covering up an old, gray paint and it matches very nicely with the walls.

The unit above the toilet was from a dumpster dive so it needed new glass inserts.  I brought the entire unit over to Allnite Glass on Lafayette and they had new beveled glass shelves for me in a few hours!

Budget:

1 Gallon of Dark Denim $27
Brush, roller, etc $10
Glass replacement shelves $16
Total $53
