From Chocolate to.......

 Ripe Wheat - I love love love this color!! I still have a few more things like a rug and maybe one other item...but for the most it is!

I forgot how much painting a small bathroom is a challenge! I had in my mind that it would take me just a few hours...however I started at 6:00 and ended at almost 11:00. I did take one break for dinner and running to Home Depot....but was so glad I got it done.

I used the Ripe Wheat color from BEHR at Home Depot. Thanks for the suggestion of the paint plus primer! I did two coats and it worked awesome!

I was so happy that I got it done on Friday night as Hubby had a change of plans Sat afternoon and called to tell me he was on his way home due to a bike breaking down. Good thing my surprise for him was ready!

He arrived last night around 9:00 and was pleasantly surprised! He said it looks so much better and bigger! I think the combination of the lighter color as well as the large painting makes it look BIG...when it is so tiny!

I just walk by the powder room and smile.....ahhh it now makes me happy!

I have had a very busy weekend with the Munchkin being here. He wore me out, but I had the BEST time with him. He is such a talker now...never a dull moment for sure! Our house sure is quiet tonight....I keep singing the song he chimed all weekend...Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Oh my what fun we had!

I have lots of pics to share but will wait until tomorrow. I am exhausted and ready to catch some sleep.

Night all!

It looks great. Be careful, it can become addicting. I've painted 7 rooms since last fall. I do think I'm done for awhile!

It definitely is a much lighter space - although I am a sucker for anything chocolate! Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today.
