Guest Bathroom Makeover

We built this house 5 1/2 years ago. SO TIRED of the tan flat paint. I finally said this is the year to bring in some color (and semi-gloss). Mike and I attempted to do the girls' bathroom several years ago and decided that wasn't a good idea. So we hired the company that did the house originally to paint the girls' bedrooms and our kitchen. This time around I wanted to try it again myself. First stop: the guest bathroom. So over the weekend I took care of it. My original idea was to "stamp" Mickey head sillouettes in red, yellow, and black all over the stark white walls. Home Depot used to carry the rubber stamp to do that but hasn't had it for awhile. I attempted to make my own but what I used was too sippery for the paint and it basically smeared on the wall. So I bagged that idea. Then decided to paint the clock and frames in there in hopes of adding more color to the walls. I think it worked quite nicely. And in retrospect I think if I had done the stamping all over the walls it would have made the bathroom look cluttered or too busy. So this is my finished product. Now on to tackling the guest bedroom!
