I realized I never wrote a follow up post to my final project in the competition. I ended up getting third place with my bathroom beach art project in the final week . Unfortunately the art and wall didn't quite turn out the way I had hoped. The timing of the final week was horrible for me. My husband and daughter were sick with the flu and I didn't have any time to really commit to the project. I literally painted the wall the day before the post was due. The canvases weren't completed until the next morning. I am extremely competitive and felt horrible submitting a project I could have done better. I am not upset because I didn't win...I'm upset because I could have done so much better with my project.
The wall was in serious need of touch ups. For months I scheduled time to get it done but never actually made it to the bathroom with my paintbrush. I actually started avoiding this room because I didn't want to be reminded of the lingering task on my to do list.
I started by taping...
Brown is not a color choice I normally would have made but I had a full gallon sitting in the closet. I purchased it last year from Lowes for only two dollars from the mixed paint clearance shelf. I didn't want to spend anything on this project so I opted to use the brown. I'm happy with the new wall and won't be explaining myself with, "oh, don't mind that wall, it needs touch ups..." each time a guest comes over.
