I still have some Benjamin Moore Northshore Green paint leftover from when I painted the bathroom the first time. My thoughts were to take what’s left back to the paint store and ask them to add some white to lighten the color. I would use the lighter color to add some nice tone on tone stripes.

There is a great tutorial for painting stripes over at Young House Love. I’m giddy with excitement…about the end result…not the process of painting – yuck. But the great thing about have a small bathroom is it shouldn’t take more than an hour or two to paint. See – there is always a silver lining. I’ll share the results next week.
