Entry #18 Bathroom Revamp – Clark Carter, Portland Maine

The project has been 2+ years in the works. Since my son was born, painting and other home projects have been all but ignored.  Recently, I was finally able to paint my bathroom!  The job was a basic room painting but with a few other detailed changes.  I painted the ceiling, walls and wood trim/door  as with any other paint job.  I also spray painted white the medicine cabinet to match the other trim parts.  I installed new outlets, mirror, ceiling fan, vanity lights, toilet and shower head to update the whole room.

Entry #10 Bathroom Revamp -Deena Hastings, Portland ME

Because the walls of our guest bath were so damaged by time: (the house is 1886) with cracks, bulges and damage from water leaks, it was almost impossible to fix them without removing all the horse hair plaster and sheetrock. So, instead I purchased “paintable wallpaper”, wallpapered above the wainscoting and then painted. (This was my first experience with wallpaper. It wasn’t pretty.) But the results were! I painted the ceiling and wainscoting Benjamin Moore Cotton Balls and the walls Benjamin Moore Kentucky Haze. In addition, we replaced all the windows in the house… so the pretty stained glass you see in the before shot is in the basement awaiting framing. We also replaced the old marble sink that was surely an original… but unfortunately, quite leaky.
