UPDATING OUR KIDS BATHROOM
By Nneka Mosley | @onehandymomma
We recently moved into our home and I’ve been slowly updating all of the rooms. I have 4 children so I love to create fun and bright spaces for them. The bathroom that 3 of them share was in great condition but very boring. So, my goal was to go with colors they all like that work for girls and boys. I decided to work with Dunn-Edwards DURA to try out the DURA line. I was immediately drawn to the palette of colors offered, and the icing on the cake is that I was able to schedule a consultation with a Color Influencer!
My color influencer was Jessica and she was great! We talked about my design ideas and all the colors that are available in the line. I loved how I was able to actually see all the colors I was interested in and how they looked on cabinets and walls. It gave me a great visual to decide on which colors I definitely wanted to go with.
Once we were done, she sent me a Dunn-Edwards DURA Color Report which included an overview of my project, paint and gloss recommendations, personalized color recommendations and info on testing colors. She also shipped me 3" x 5" color cards and 8" x 8" Peel & Sticks so I could see the colors I requested.
After receiving everything, I consulted my 3 little clients (my children lol) and we decided on 3 colors: Razzle Dazzle, Indigo Night, and Rain Forest.
When I received the paint, I immediately fell in love with Rain Forest…like immediately! It’s so vibrant and the perfect unisex color! So, I used that color for the majority of the room. I thought a feature wall would be really cool as well so I used Indigo Night & Classic White for that.
And of course, I can’t forget the show-stopping Razzle Dazzle! Now pink is my favorite color so I may be a little biased…but boy is this color amazing! I used Razzle Dazzle to paint the cabinet base as well as the trim on mirrors and it really tied everything together! To prep the cabinets, I cleaned them, sanded them and then used Dunn-Edwards DURA+ Wood Primer.
I painted about 3 coats and it turned out amazingggggg!!!
Painting this room was so much fun and the colors really brought my design to life! I plan to add a few more touches like updating the flooring and maybe some shelves on wall but other than that, it’s done! So glad I used Dunn-Edwards DURA paint for this room!
