So our bathroom was pink.... pink walls, pink curtains... very pink. now don't get me wrong I like pink, but not in my bathroom, not in that quantity anyway.

Here's the result of a couple cans of paint:

sorry, this ones dark... but it give a fuller view of the bubbles.
Here's a

before/during in which you can still see the pink:


this is as finished as the bathroom will get for a while.  I just really couldn't stand the pink bathroom... next redo we will have the tub and toilet moved, and a new vanity and new floors... Good thing my hubbys a plumber.... Cheesy  But for now a couple cans of paint will do.  And belive you me, there will be bubbles in the next re-do too!

Very cute!  I love polka dots but have yet to use them on the walls- that might have to be remedied soon!  Smiley

Wow, it looks amazing! I love it! How did you manage to get the bubbles so perfectly round? Whenever I try painting circles they always come out wonky!

Thanks!!  As to getting them round I made a template with old cereal boxes, and carefully stenciled the shape on then adjusted where needed Smiley  No way I could ever freehand those!!

I LOVE the way that turned out.  I too may have to try this in my spare bathroom.  Are your walls textured or flat?  I have not been brave enough to try these things partially because I have very textured walls.

Great color combo too, I like the blues (and it seems like it definitely would out-perform all pink).

thanks!!

bliss2187-  No the walls are not textured.  I could see it being tricky to get perfect looking circles on a textured wall.  not to say that they need to look perfect,  but I understand why you would be hesitant.  as to the color combo, everything in my house ends up being blue.... I guess I'm inextricably drawn to it...
