So my bathroom is pretty ugly and since i'm renting there is nothing i can do about the walls.

my landlord gave us a bunch of random furniture when we moved in a desk (that i'm still working on), 2 dressers (that need to be worked on very bad) and this shelf in the bathroom that i use for my towels.

I don't have a before picture but I have a half painted picture so you can see the ugly color before. lol

the blue arrow is where the paint had started to come off and was showing a bunch of other colors.

I had some awesome green paint laying around and some black. and went to town.

see the bathroom has wood panel walls. if my walls were white my bathroom would be green and yellow.

oh well. someday!

Great job on the shelves!  I love reconning old furnishings!

On a side note: would your landlord consider allowing you to paint the paneling? I have done it several times (just finished painting a paneled wall in my mothers kitchen in fact) - it looks great - kinda like a french country beadboard look. - very simple to do - just TSP (biodegradable kind!) the walls, some primer, and some semigloss paint and its a whole bright new look!  This would actually INCREASE the apartments "rentability" for the future, since NOBODY likes old paneled walls!

I actually want to paint my ENTIRE apartment haha. and if we decide that we want to stay another year I am going to ask her.

What's TSP? I can't believe I don't know after working in a paint department for awhile.

I may have to stalk you until I find out if I can do this!

I always thought wood panels would look bad painted I'd love to see some pictures of yours!!!
