About 5 year ago I totally committed myself to my guest bath by applying a a wall treatment that gave it a "faux stone" look. Taping off each stone, applying plaster, stippling and painting= COMMITMENT. Back then I thought it was the best idea ever. I would walk by the bath thinking "how cool is that" and "I so love that".
I even had my sister in law paint the topiary assuming that I would always like lemons!!
Well, all those bath sentiments began to feel a little different a few years ago when I had the rest of the main floor painted in lighter shades. I then faced my challenge on what to do and how to do it with this bath. Since I was not about to scrape and sand down the walls back to a smooth finish, I thought I would paint the ceiling, but after a few strokes and several months of looking at this, I realized that wasn't the answer.
Then it hit me again after I finished painting my office, that maybe I should approach the bath with a different color palette. And so I did, on the ceiling first,with Grey.
I began to feel those positive bath sentiments emerge again, so I mixed a combination of white and grey paint and color washed the stone.
I then applied the same grey color that is on the ceiling to all of the grout joints. This color combination actually looks more authentic and similar to limestone.
The niche where my tree sat still has to be sanded down, but for now the old window does wonders to conceal and reminders of my "commitment" and my lemons.
