Bathroom Makeover – Take 2

With a 14 year old house, we have been noticing some wear and tear on the ol’ bathroom cabinets lately. Last weekend we repainted the master bathroom vanity.  I spent a good 2 hours on Pinterest searching for the ‘perfect’ color for an updated vanity. Didn’t want a builders white, nothing too crazy, but enough color to snazz it up a bit. I tried calling my Color Expert, Courtney, but never could reach her.  Sadly, we both know the Sherwin Williams color names by heart and can discuss ‘Tradewind’, ‘Kilm Beige’ and ‘Sea Salt’ like they are old friends. This makes her husband, Chad, laugh when he hears us speaking Sherwin Williams-eugse over the long distance phone.

The broken chair has to go- the seat has all but fallen out requiring a pillow to keep my fanny from falling through. Watch out One Kings Lane- I’ve got my eye on you.

I  finally made an executive decision and settled on Benjamin Moore’s ‘Rockport Grey.’ Monday morning Courtney finally called me back- I explained to her that I needed her guidance earlier that weekend to help me choose a color. Before I could finish my sentence, she said, “there is a great color by Benjamin Moore called Rockport Grey. 

I kid you not.

Of all the thousands and thousands of colors out there, she would say the exact color that we had just painted. Thirty years of being best friends, I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me so. As I often tell my girls, great minds think alike!
