Our master bathroom isn’t very big but I am the only one who uses it so it is perfect for me. Last week I shared a sneak peek of our new green and white master and boy, what a difference paint can make! It’s amazing how clean, fresh and bright this small space looks. Our master bathroom makeover is sponsored by Sherwin-Williams as part of National Painting Week and the color Composed, is what transformed this space from drab to fab.

See what I mean by a little bit of paint can completely transform a space?

The color Composed, by Sherwin-Williams Emerald Interior (Satin finish), is a deep dark green but gives the spa feel that I was going after. The goal was to complete this project on a minimal budget.

I did purchase a new shower curtain, towel rod, bath mat and baskets.

I painted all of the trim and vanity a fresh new white (Extra white/Emerald Interior by Sherwin-Williams) color in a semi gloss finish.

The vanity prior was a cream color and it didn’t coordinate at all so painting it white was necessary. I am hoping to add new hardware at some point but that is for another day.

I used two small finish nails and gently tapped them into the side of the vanity to hang the basket. The basket is perfect for toilet paper or even a magazine if that floats your boat in the bathroom ;).

A new towel rod, an inexpensive white valence and a set of new white towels added the finishing touches to the space.

I spray painted the existing black mirror white which helped keep me within my budget.

The lime green hand towel and checkered towel add the perfect contrast to the dark green on the walls. Don’t be afraid to mix in different shades of the same color. I was pleasantly surprised how the lime and composed/green looked together. I am so pleased with how our master bathroom makeover turned out.

    My Master bath looks like your “before” pic–wondering if you or sherwin Williams
    Makes house calls??!? Love the new shade of green–mine is a tired green right now and the cabinets are too dark –hmmm…you may have inspired a trip to the paint store!!!

  5. It looks beautiful Jessica!! Love, love, love the new color!

  6. So, so, so pretty Jess! What a total transformation! I love that color and Sherwin WIlliams is my absolute favorite paint!

  7. I painted my kids’ bathroom almost the exact same color. One of my favorite colors in our whole house 🙂

  8. Love that green! It’s amazing how your counter looks totally different against that color, love it! Where did you get the valence? Need to copy and go buy one ;)))

  9. Kelly Palmer says:

    It looks beautiful! Where did you get the shower curtain?

  10. Kelly Palmer says:

    It looks beautiful! Where did you get the shower curtain?

  11. Jessica, How Lovely! Did you have to prime or sand the vanity? I am desperate to find a light fixture like that. Do you know where it came from?

    1. Hi, I just painted right over the existing paint on the vanity. However, if you are painting over stain, you need to do a quick sand and Sherwin Williams sells a base Pro Classic white primer that you could put on first and then after it’s dry, add two coats of your paint 😉

  12. Green is my favorite, and I love what you did to your bathroom! Turned out lovely!

    1. I am sick as a dog and you just made me laugh out loud…. Yup I am going to Haven…..go easy on my guts 😉

  13. Where can I find the 3 bulb ceiling fixture? We’re seniors with neck problems & need something that is easy to change out light bulbs for hallways & laundry room.

  14. I LOVE your new bathroom! The color is amazing and I love the idea of your basket holding the toilet roll! Nice job!

  15. I absolutely love it! Its so bright and cheery. Amazing what a little paint can do.
    I have a few rooms that could use some sprucing up. Think it might be time!

  16. Can you list where you bought rug, towels, baskets, etc. ? It all just looks so great together!

  17. This color is gorgeous! Makes a huge difference. I need to repaint my guest bathroom. There are no windows and it’s very dark… thinking this color would be great to brighten it up.

  18. sewmaximama says:

    It looks so refreshed. The color really made a huge difference! How does a satin finish work in a bathroom? I thought that was a no no

  19. The paint color choice is just perfect! What a transformation! Love the baskets too!

  20. Absolutely beautiful, Jessica! That color is gorgeous!!

  21. That color is gorgeous and I love how bright your master bathroom is!

  22. Love the bathroom! What do you keep in the containers on the back of the toliet?
