Thanks to my DIL and A Soft Place to Land I am here today. DIL was participating, and I also wanted to jump in on the fun! So here's the deal....... I had taken a bid from a painter for this extra bath re-do. It originally had wallpaper in there. I wanted the paper to go AWAY and be replaced with a light texture. I just was not sure I wanted to tackle this.

The DIY spirit won out! I dealt with the paper, got the Kilz going, and then asked DIL to get the texturing going. (She's good!) I then finished the texturing on the weekend. Now it was time for the painting.

I don't necessarily enjoy painting or want to do it for a living, but I sure love the feel of a freshly painted room! So here's the sneak peek! 


  1. I'm impressed Diana! With this economy, I love how people are getting so creative and doing it themselves. I follow A Soft Place to Land also but have not joined in yet on a DIY project. I love reading her blog though.

  2. GOD bless you. Taking down wall paper is a nightmare. Your paint job looks beautiful.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. I love the new look. I love painting. We are now in the throws of redoing our bathroom. Tomorrow is priming day and then hopefully on the weekend I can get the painting done. Have a wonderful day.

  4. I love the smell of fresh paint.

    Or maybe it's just the fumes... either way, it's a good thing!

  5. Nice job. Bathrooms are great for DIY painting projects. They aren't so big they get overwhelming. One day I'll post our Masterbath remodel.


  6. Good for you. Nothing makes me feel better than to tackle a job I don't necessarily like and finish it; I feel such pride! Can't wait to see more.

  7. Hi Diana--

    Thanks for coming by Imparting Grace and introducing yourself. It's very nice to meet you!

    Your bathroom looks wonderful! Well done.


  8. Great job! I love that you just jumped in and figured out how to do it.

    I've gotten quotes from painters for this type of work before and they've made me choke every time. Good for you for getting it done!


  9. It's always a lot of work, but so nice to save the money. Looks like it was well worth it.

  10. I am here for a visit because you left a comment on my blog. I have no idea what's up with Google this morning but I have tried leaving 2 other messages and one just diappeared and one said your blog didn't exist-UHhh, no I was just there. So if you get 2 other notes that is why.

    I came over for my 1st visit to your blog. You left a comment on my blog-Its So Very Cheri. I hope you come by often, leave lots of comments because that's how I get to know you better and join as a follower and I will do the same. If you want to know more than you ever wanted about me you can click on the G-Force family button on my blog under the header. I look forward to getting to know you better.

    Its So Very Cheri

  11. Very nice! I don't care for painting either, but the results are worth it. Thanks for coming by!

  12. ah...looks so much better...I do love the feeling a fresh coat of paint does to a room and the instant change you get from doing it (ie like a backache? Ha..just kidding). You should show us the entire room when ya complete it ;-)
