I’ve gone way out of my comfort zone,
+ we’re painting our upstairs bathroom sage green.
It’s one of many sage greens from Sherwin-Williams!
I chose Unusual Gray (at the bottom, above) for the walls,
with Contented (3rd from the top), lightened by 50%, for the ceiling.
Here they are, side by side in our bathroom.
I think they look more green + less gray, on the walls + ceilings.
It looks good, but it needs a white crown molding at the ceiling
to make it look crisp + neat.
Something like this:
The Contented ceiling pops nicely against the white subway tiles,
so I have faith it will look great with that white crown.
There wasn’t enough of the original woodwork for this room,
so G.O. bought some new baseboards that are just as tall as the old ones:
He brought in his compound miter saw from the garage:
Soon, he’ll add some quarter-round molding at the floor.
I am relieved that I like actually like the colors . . .
. . . because let’s face it: greens can go so wrong, so easily.
The Unusual Gray is a tad darker than I anticipated,
but that might be because of all the dark + cloudy days we’re having.
Soon enough, we will be adding all the finishing touches.
Help! What goes with green?
