Paint it Black

I am so excited to do the first post on our apartment! As you can imagine I've already redone the space a million times in my head but the one thing I knew for certain was that I wanted to paint the bathroom black! Our friends all looked at us like we were crazy but Eric, the mensch that he is, never doubted me for a minute. So with the help of our lovely friends who graciously spent their Sunday helping us paint we took the plunge and painted it black!



The light fixture didn't really come through in the picture above but we simply took off the shades on the outdated light fixture and added filament light bulbs.

Quick side note to anyone considering painting a room black - it takes SEVERAL coats. Our small bathroom took four!  But once its done believe me its well worth it.


  1. So dramatic and sophisticated...gorgeous!

  2. Looks so good!! And THAT's what you did with the light fixture! I was admiring them the other day :) So clever, you..
