Bathroom Refresh...

Last weekend hubby and I painted the kid's bathroom. I forgot to take "before" pics, but let's just say it was a boring "builder beige" color and really needed to be freshened up. The main reason was because it was developing a mildew problem. The builder didn't use bathroom suitable paint, just flat paint like he used in the rest of the house. And with my teenagers liking to take long hot showers, even with the fan running, we were developing little spots of mildew on the ceiling and upper walls. We would scrub it off, but it kept coming back and seemed to soak into the paint, just nasty. So, we cleaned it again and then used Kilz brand paint in a semi gloss finish. The color is calmed "creamy blue" and I'm really happy with it. Hubby even keeps commenting on how nice the bathroom looks. Oh, and we painted the ceiling the same color and it worked out great. I'm hoping that with this new paint we can easily wipe off any mildew or mold. Now we just need to get a better fan for the room.

And of course I have to share more pics of Mason! Here he is right after a bath and looking a bit like a wrinkled old man :) See how reddish his hair looks when it's sticking straight up.
And he did great at his U/S appointment yesterday and the radiologist said there were no signs of any hip problems on either hip!! YAY!!
Thank you all for the curtain suggestions, I think I have an idea in my head now that I am going to try to put into action today, if the cutie pie lets me put him down.

Have a lovely day,
