We got our own snowy day here on the hill. Lucky for me, I planned ahead. No, that does not mean extra toilet paper or milk from the grocery store. In fact, I couldn't even make pancakes this morning because we were out of eggs. What I did have, however, was this.
The family would've preferred pancakes, trust me.
A while ago I showed you my master bath redo. I repainted the walls, as well as the white mirrors you see here. Like so many other projects around this house, I kinda went Eh when it was done.
What I didn't say Eh about, however, was this little guy from Anthropologie. I'm hooked on him, actually.
He's such a little cutie, isn't he?
Isn't he? Humor me here.
The white mirrors just weren't doing it for me, so yesterday (in anticipation of The Snowy Day) I stopped by this wonderful little store, a place where EVERYONE gets excited over towel hooks and cans of paint, and I bought this.
Then I came home and hid all the evidence so the husband wouldn't panic. When colors like this show up, it's best to keep him in the dark for a while, like, till whatever is getting painted is painted. Don't judge me.
Antibes green is the color, and because I didn't want my bathroom mirrors to look like ugly golf jackets, I also picked up this.
Honestly, I felt like I was about to commit a crime when I saw the color of this stuff. Fortunately, I had a good sales lady who warned me in advance. Plus, I've stalked all y'all's (is that even a word?) blogs enough times to know that dark wax looks good…eventually.
Initially, it looked like this. NOT gonna lie, it freaked me out a little.
After a good coat of dark wax, it looked more like this. See what a difference that dark wax makes?
I also didn't get all perfectionist-ish on the leftover white. I figured the more colors the merrier. Plus, I was too lazy to go to the basement for the painter's tape. I just did my best to stay clear of the glass.
Bathroom mirrors went from this…
Sing it one more time! This…
Now if Benjamin Moore's dill pickle green doesn't wake you up in the morning, I don't know what will. Here's the view from the bathroom window.
So pretty. The kind of day that makes you stop and think about life OR paint your mirrors crazy green.
Because the light was so great inside, I just kept snapping pictures. My husband swears dreary days are best for taking interior shots.
You'd think it was a summer's day outside.
These shots are totally random.
And that's how I spent The Snowy Day.
As of this post, I have fifty-one followers, and I am grateful to all of you.
P.S. Hubby liked the mirrors:-)
