I was provided with product and/or compensation by BEHR to write this post but, as always, thoughts and opinions expressed are my own!
Once, there was a girl who lived in a barn while building a house. (Technically, her husband was doing most of the building, but stay with me.)
She spent days and days and days in a row painting trim and siding for the new house. She was sick and tired of painting.
But then she got home one night after hours of painting, cracked open a bottle of wine and painted a perfectly good bathroom in a great new color.
Because she’s crazy. But crazy in a good way, obviously.
While the bathroom didn’t actually “need” to be painted, painting the walls in Behr Modern Mint was a quick transformation that I love!
Modern Mint (T16-12) is one of 20 of the 2016 Color Trends from Behr.
I ended up with a quart of four of the colors I loved from this lineup, so you may be seeing some more projects in the next months.
The entire bathroom took less than a quart of paint. Love the coverage of Marquee paint.
I originally began by painting only the crate on the wall, but then I realized that this color would look amazing all over. So I went with it. The color is a perfect complement to the shower curtain (a Pottery Barn hand-me-down from my mother-in-law).
The only area I didn’t paint was the area behind the twig towel holder.
I didn’t want to remove it from the wall and figured the grey looks okay behind there – it frames the area in a way.
But everything else was easy to paint around.
It’s a challenge to photograph such a small space, but the Modern Mint really gives it a little punch of personality it didn’t have before.
I hope you enjoyed our little bathroom transformation with the help of the 2016 Color Trends from Behr. Check out all the other amazing projects from my fellow DIY Experts:
