We've been in our home for 5 years now. We have a plethora of colors in it. Fifteen, I think, was the last count. We love color! We never got around to doing the kids' bathroom, nor the two guest rooms.

The (cheap) towel rack was coming off the wall; the anchors were loose, so when it finally fell, we removed the hardware and anchors and I filled the holes in with putty/spackle/whatever you call it. It was noticeable and ugly so I said "Since we have the hardware off the wall, let's paint!"

Jacob suggested something in the blue range and I agreed. Yesterday we hit Lowe's and picked out our color; Star Gazer.

The painting was very easy. We already had all the supplies we needed and we decided to do only 1/2 of the bathroom. The other half has mirrors and cabinets that we didn't want to move.

This above is only the first coat. I gave it a second coat and today I will go over the edges with a small artist's brush, to even out what the blue painters tape peeled. Grr.

We purchased a new dual towel rack and will install it later tonight. More pictures to come.

I love the name of it - Star Gazer.
I want to be the person who names new colors.

How coincidental.....I was at Lowes Saturday Night buying paint for my bathroom. Green: Alpine Shadow. However I haven't started the painting yet...I did paint our powder room yellow a few weeks ago. Kerry says he feels like he is getting a sun-tan every time he goes in there now; :)
