When the cat is away, the mice do paint

And so it begins. Mr.10yt is out of town again and I found myself home from brunch with nothing to do. I decided to get a can of paint and finally do the walls in the powder room. The faux-textured blue paint in there has been an eyesore to me for almost 3 years. Good riddance!
After 2 hours or so of painting, I'm done!

Before:


And after. Still need to finish the little parts on the cabinet and find a picture to put above the throne. Home Depot's Behr paint in Benjamin Moore's color Pismo Dunes. Apparently HD has the formula for this color and it was a perfect match. I don't care what people say, Behr is A-OK with me. I used 1 coat and it covered fine and was easy to apply.
