Powder Room Progress

I'm happy to report I am slowly making progress in the powder room.  I didn't really think about it at the time, but I guess painting over pumpkin is about like painting over red.  It takes A LOT of coats and A LOT of paint, I learned that the hard way.  I think it took four coats, I'm not sure though I kind of stopped counting after three.  Here it was after two coats.  I'm happy to say the first step of the painting is done, now I just have to work on the stripes.  The room already looks much bigger and so much more fresh and clean in there.  

I also switched out the mirror in there to this one I found at Goodwill.  I didn't really mind the gold color so much but wanted something that would pop a little more and wanted to bring in some mint green.

These aren't the best after shots (maybe my sister can teach me to take pictures of a bathroom with no windows and terrible lighitng), but it gives you an idea of how things are looking in there.  I painted it with Rustoleum Seaside Green

What a great mirror! I always love the difference a can of spray paint can make. :)

I have a very similar mirror (just bigger) and I painted it gold at first too. After a while I thought it needed more glam so I went in and painted all of the flower work black. That mirror is now the one thing in my house I get the most compliments on. It looks amazing with the black painted in :)
