Welcome to Walk Through Wednesday. Today I am sharing some odds and ends. These bathrooms are all from the 2012 Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Some of these bathrooms are from homes I have already featured. Some of these bathrooms belong to homes I have yet to feature.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy Wednesday!

Well, we’ve made it to the weekend that means it’s time for Feature Friday. Today I am sharing a little light makeover I did in my boys’ bedroom. The light in this room was probably the only light in the house that had been updated when we bought our home, that is why I decided not to replace it. I did however want to freshen the light up for the big makeover. I showed you in this post and this post how I have been painting big stripes in their room. One of the stripes is a chalkboard stripe and one is magnetic. The rest of the stripes are various colors and widths. One of the colors I used is stainless steel. I had half a can leftover so I thought I would just throw on a quick coat of the stainless steel paint and see how that looked.
I like the results. I think she’s a keeper. The stainless steel paint really ties in well with the stripes and other stainless steel accents in the room. Best of all, it was free and only took an afternoon to complete (not counting the touch-ups I obviously didn’t get around to).
I bought the stainless steel paint at Home Depot. It’s made by Rust Oleum. I think it was about $20 for a quart. The quart goes pretty far if you’re only doing little projects or accent pieces. (well worth the money, in my opinion).
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!

Welcome to Feature Friday. today I am featuring my kids’/guest bathroom. Yes, I have been working on it again. You may click here and here to see how this little bathroom has changed.
If you recall, this bathroom started out in Ralph Lauren’s “Shoreline Blue“. Then I painted it Ralph Lauren’s “Ginger”. Now it is Sherwin Williams “Simply White” (on top) and two custom mixed shades of grey. I mixed the bottom greys with leftover paint from other rooms (the leftovers were other shades on the Simply White paint chip).
I think I am done in here for now. I adore the Simply White. It is a very soft grey with a bit of warmth. It is perfect for this bathroom. There is no window in here and not a lot of light so the Simply White reads as grey. In direct light it probably would look white.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

In between projects, I was able to make a couple of minor changes to my guest bathroom. When I put the ribbon on the wall (in the before picture below) I knew it was only a matter of time before my boys had it well, off the wall.
I took the rest of the ribbon off, filled the holes and taped off the walls. I had a little grey paint (Anew Grey by Sherwin Williams) on hand and painted the smaller stripe with it. I mixed the grey paint with some of the white paint (Clear Moon by Behr) and that’s what I painted the bottom, wider stripe with it. Although I loved the ribbon, I also love the stripes. I love experimenting and trying new things and luckily, my boys give me plenty of opportunities to spruce thing up .

I found some more pictures from the Kid Paradise House from the 2011 Salt Lake City Parade of Homes for this week’s “Inspiration”. This week I am sharing pictures of the girls’ rooms. First up (above) the pretty purple room. I love the shade of purple the designer (Joanne Constantine) chose. I am also loving the cute little tutus hung on the wall, so sweet and feminine.
Next up is the very colorful room. It is so bright and cheery. It just makes me happy to look at it (especially if I had a better pictures, sorry!).
And finally here is a picture of the shared Jack-and-Jill bathroom. I love the purple vanity and the shower curtain. I think it is great for both very young and teenage girls, heck, I wouldn’t mind it in my bathroom . Hope you all have a happy and “Inspired” weekend!
