Guest Bath, Our First Home,

Back at it – guest bathroom blue & brass

I just got back from a wonderful vacation with my whole family to Cape San Blas in Florida. I sure do miss sitting on the hammock on the deck listening to the ocean!  Although, I don’t miss Kennedy’s terrible sleep schedule while we were down there.

Anywho, I’m home and back to work. I finally narrowed down my paint choice for the vanity: Sherwin Williams Georgian Bay. I just put the first coat on…and quickly remembered that the first coat is always a little scary when using colorful paint.

It’s still wet in this picture.  When it dries it’s a calmer blue; not quite as bright.  You can see some of the primer through the blue too because I chose to do thin coats.  I’ve read over and over that that’s the way to go when painting wood.

After reading several bloggers rave about Sherwin Williams ProClassic paint I chose to go that route too with this vanity.  Mandy from Vintage Revivals used it on a chest of drawers and it looks flawless.  I know that using oil-based paint is the preferred method for cabinetry, but with a little baby in the house I just can’t deal with those kinds of fumes.  I’m using the ProClassic Latex paint in a satin finish & will give you my full review after I’m finished.  I hope I have great things to say about it!!!

I’m going to buy the same knobs and pulls I have in my kitchen since I love them so much and they’re the perfect aged brass look I’m going for.

I’m dying inside a little over the fact that I can’t get a new countertop anytime soon. Is this where I insert the #firstworldproblems??? I just have to remind myself to keep moving forward with what I’ve got and make it work!

Alright, time to get back to work.  Wish me luck!

I’m tackling my own guest bathroom remodel with blue vanity and and wanted to know if you’d still recommend the Georgian Bay paint.

Hi Rachel! I loved that color. In my current house I used Denim by Sherwin Williams and I think I like it even more. Both are great blues though, in my opinion 🙂
