This is the part where I have a confession to make! Homeright was kind enough to send me a paint sprayer to try out almost a year ago. Yes, a year ago! I was too intimidated to use it so it's been sitting all nice and pretty in its box just staring me in the face.
I was so intimidated that the prep work you see below was rolled on. Yep, can you say weenie?
Well, I finally put my big girl undies on and went after the big guns for the final coats!
Here's a simple break down for ya...
Step 1. Be brave enough to pull the sprayer off the shelf.
Step 2. Read the instructions. (I'm a girl so that's okay.)
Step 3. Use dipper tool to check the viscosity, aka thickness, of the paint. This was the step I was dreading most, but it turned out to be a piece of cake.
Step 4. Find a test material.
Step 5. Spray away. Learn the different angles so you know which will work best on your actual project.
Step 6. Throw away your roller because this thing is 100 times easier!!!
Step 7. Celebrate your new, non-weenie status!
A few more shots of the decor details...
Although they look like different colors, the walls are all actually the same color. Shadows are a booger, I tell ya.
I chose a gray-green color from Benjamin Moore, Hazy Skies (OC-48) and had it color matched at Home Depot. For the tub surround, I color matched Sherwin William's Fawn Brindle (SW 7640).
Maverick was quick to offer his approval.
Last but not least, the best part of the bathroom (also the culprit for making my pictures so hard to shoot)...the view!
