navy and mustard

I spent all of yesterday painting my bathroom cupboards blue.

"Restless Sea" blue by Behr.  Also known as navy.

Do you have any idea how tedious painting cupboards is? My recommendation is to avoid it at all costs if possible.

But this bathroom has been my arch nemesis since we moved in.  It had the feel of a hospital bathroom with a touch of grandparenty-ness. 

Sorry Gramps, but truth is truth. Plus you guys are way too hip to consider a bathroom like this for at least another ten years.

So I decided long ago that Mustard and Navy was the solution.  I needed something to distract from those countertops.

Yesterday at Home Depot while I was picking out the perfect shades I noticed..
My nails are a good inspiration.

What would navy be without mustard? It's like peanut butter without jelly.  Or Buddy the Elf without yellow tights. 

I used "Solar Fusion" by Behr.

Several more coats to go..just keep painting, just keep painting..

This shower curtain was $31.99 at Target.

I bought it for $8.06 on Clearance.

I was so excited about it I called Andrew to tell him what an awesome shopper I am.

The conversation was short-lived and I learned that I may be the only one that really cares about deals on shower curtains.  Maybe I need some friends.

Today will be spent painting and doing laundry. Did you see that pile in the above picture? If you didn't notice it already...just forget I mentioned it.

Anyway, I have my favorite song playing to keep me company
