Eye-melting Green to Serene

Eye-melting Green to Serene

Gina from A Sense of Design has shown us some of her glorious makeover work before, in particular, her most fabulous kitchen.  Trouble with that gorgeousness was that it didn’t leave much money in the budget for anything else.  Like this homage to green that was happening in her bathroom.  I love those two randomly placed decorative tiles.  And that pink soap holder.  And that mirror that may have been stolen from a public bathroom.

But Gina isn’t afraid of hard work, so she tackled every square inch of this green beast with a little ingenuity and a lot of tile paint.  You’d think I have been doing this long enough that I would know all about tile paint, but you’d be wrong!  Never heard of the stuff, but it appears to have saved the day!

    Amazing transformation! So funny I just posted about my bathroom remodel.

    I have heard of tile paint but I’m scared to try it, wondering if it scratches off…

    but that looks great!

    I love it when things can be changed simple and easy.

    I have posted my own bathroom in my blog, but because I dont like before pictures, there is none in my blog.

    But, yes, it is amazing what can be done with things.

    Oh my. This house may have belonged to me in the 80’s. 🙂

    For some reason, I left my mark in that house with lots of green – kitchen CARPET (ewwww – but HEY – it was the STYLE) and even green bathroom fixtures.

    When we put it on the market, I remember a potential buyer walking through and shaking his head and saying, “Everything is so – so – so – GREEN.” Yep, my style left them speechless.

    I LOVE the after, but to be honest, I kinda like the green too! I don’t like the pink accents or the two accent tiles, but I actually do like the shade of green. Overall, it looks a lot better in the “after”.

    What a difference. I think I need to either have Gina come paint my tile, or give it a whirl myself. Very nice, and I love that it still looks good after two years.

    Looks great! BUT only for a SHORT while!

    Trust me, I found out the hard way! We bought a house that had the 60’s pink tile that had been painted by the previous owners. They must have NEVER cleaned, because the smallest thing (like bathroom cleaner and a soft cloth) will take the paint off in chunks!
