[Artsy Fartsy]

I've got three projects to start on (and, perhaps, if I'm on a roll, finish) this week: paint my bathroom, finish this mixed media project I'm working for myself, and paint a satellite dish. Yes, really.  It's going to have an eagle portrait on it. I'm going to True Value and Home Depot this week to see if I can get some sample sized enamel paints, since it will be a long time, I expect, before I have another one to do like this. While I'm there, I plan to get paint for my bathroom and guest room. This is one of those semesters where my art projects are keeping me sane. :)

Here's the bathroom color scheme:

The greens are already on my towels and shower curtain, so I'm going for the slate-lavenders with a somewhat more saturated tone. I'm thinking the darker tone for the wall with the lighter tone in a thick horizontal stripe around the room.

I'm toying with the idea of painting my wood pieces espresso and eventually replacing the medicine cabinet with something more contemporary. I know it horrifies some people, but the current tone is a little too country for my personality.

For the guest room:
