Painting Blinds and Bathroom Finishing Touch

There were two things left undone on the bathroom transformation I showed here and here:

1. I hadn’t done a window treatment and 
2. I wanted to add a couple of cute accessories….

on a budget.

First off – window treatment.

This was the original blind:


I didn’t even measure – I  just put Frog Tape on the blind in three strips and removed the middle strip.

SO easy.


Then I applied plain ‘ol paint.

This blind will not go through the wash well – but since it has a mechanical component on the back that I couldn’t detach, I wouldn’t have been able to wash it anyways.

I know this matches the decor because it’s the same Benjamin Moore ‘Peony’ that I used on the Dog Canvases here.

Use a thin coat of paint and then layer it on until the space is filled in.

A thick layer is more likely to bleed under the tape.


Remove the tape and voila!


Window treatment = DONE!


I also wanted to have a couple of cute dishes to hold “stuff” – 
I didn’t know what I wanted them to hold, just that I wanted a shot of pink on the counter.

$0.49 clay pots:

Blind & pots05

Two coats of BM’s Peony,


then fill with “stuff”


Pretty cute accessories even if I do say so myself!


The bathroom is finally complete!

Last B and A, I promise!

Have a great one!

    I must say, you managed to do your window treatment quite easily. And it turned out great, as it blends nicely with the theme of your bathroom. Anyway, I think you can also try using bamboo blinds or Shoji in the future. They are only plain blinds, but they easily complement with other elements in the bathroom, especially if you’re going for a particular theme.

      Thanks for the tip. Without a doubt there will be more makeovers in the future – and I will absolutely look into your suggestions as options. Thank you very much.
