My DIY Project Boo-boo

Update as of August 15, 2022. Not too long ago, I noticed some scrapes on my wall that showed the old paint. And just recently, I got some more paint to fix the imperfections and started noticing other imperfections (they weren’t really imperfections, just me doing too much, lbs). The paint I used to paint my bathroom has been unavailable for awhile so I got what I thought was a paint close in color. And because I painted not only the scrapes but other areas 😫, I immediately was like I messed up my beautiful wall after seeing the results. And I am not a professional painter. Plus, the first retouch to fix the imperfections I painted with a paint brush. I realized that if I used a roller to paint the majority of the wall when I first redid my bathroom last year, then maybe get another one and with that I can blend better. I have since then found some old gray paint and mixed the paint I just bought together a bit. I also bought the mini roller and tried to blend it as much as possible. So far it doesn’t look bad now and much of it has blended better. I am thinking about redoing the bathroom later this year. I may keep the color gray though I have not found the Calming Gray paint and it is unavailable with the brand I bought. So, I will find something close to it.

This is one of the photos before I used the roller to blend it more (I will show the end result soon). I learned that with painting there is really no retouching. You either buy the exact same paint and brand or just do the whole wall over. And two, leave stuff alone. It is not going to be perfect.

It blended much better. Thank God! See photos below.

See below post of when I first did my bathroom and how lovely it looked before some scrapes and overthinking caused me to repaint. 😆 It still looks lovely though.


I went in and made some additional changes to my bathroom and wanted to give a final update on it. Read below to see why I made the new additional changes and here is the final (I promise this is the final one 😆) final reveal.

Check out my DIY house project. I have been wanting to redecorate my bathroom for awhile now. I finally prepped, started and now finished my bathroom. I am no way an expert and this is my first time painting walls of this magnitude so I am grateful that it looks nice and I did a good job. Had the little one record me and he said he didn’t feel like he did his best but the video turned out ok. I am grateful that he recorded me and he did a good job despite the moments he kept filming the wall 😆.

I forgot to take before and after shots of my bathroom but this is an old photo of how it looked before during the past Christmas season. The walls had stains on them and just needed an update.

So, here we go! The final reveal! The hamper I bought wouldn’t let me be great and neither would the rugs so I will be replacing those. But I am happy with my paint job. The ceiling I admit was tedious to paint but I did my best. I guess you can say my bathroom is looking forward to Spring.

Check out the video of my progress before the finish.
