Reconsidering A White Toilet Ceiling (And A Sneak Peek Of My Bubble Gentle)

I’m actually attempting to remain centered on engaged on the lavatory as a substitute of getting sidetracked with different tasks round the home. It’s getting troublesome, although, as a result of I’m so uninterested in engaged on trim. So whereas I did make progress on trim and ending the newly put in door yesterday (which may be very near being completed), I made a decision to finish the day with a enjoyable, inventive mission. I made a decision to begin on the bubble mild that may go over the bath.

A bubble mild over the bath has been a part of the plan from the start. Keep in mind this picture I put collectively displaying the course for the lavatory? I added a semi-flush mount bubble mild that I discovered on-line (it’s above the bath and form of blends in with the mural, so it’s slightly laborious to see), however after having a tough time discovering precisely what I needed, I made a decision to make my very own.


Till yesterday, the sunshine above the place the bath will go appeared like this…

It’s the identical sort of extremely skinny recessed mild that I’ve in the remainder of the room, and all through the home.

So yesterday, I received out the 9 bins of enormous 4-inch frosted white Christmas ornaments that I’ve had tucked away since final fall (when I discovered them on sale at Interest Foyer), and began engaged on my bubble mild. What’s humorous is that every one of those months, each time I noticed that stack of 9 bins of ornaments, I’d assume to myself, “There’s NO WAY I’m going to wish all of these! I’m positively going to have some extras left over.” Properly, I used to be unsuitable. Not solely did I want each a kind of, however I may have used about three or 4 extra bins.

I’ve needed to order extra, so my bubble mild isn’t completed but. However right here’s the progress to this point…

I’m not going to share a tutorial till it’s completed, and I don’t know once I’ll get those I ordered final night time. I won’t get them till subsequent week, so for now, I’m caught with a half completed bubble mild. However it’s nonetheless enjoyable to have a look at!

And this might be my view as I’m soaking within the tub…

To date, I really like the sunshine. It’s turning out higher than I imagined, and was a lot simpler to make than I had anticipated.

However now I’m second-guessing the white bubble mild towards a white ceiling. I don’t want or need the sunshine to face out like a sore thumb, and I don’t essentially need it to be a principal point of interest. However I would love it to point out up, and I ponder if it’s too delicate towards a white ceiling.

I’ve three choices right here:

  1. Depart the sunshine and the ceiling as they’re, and be proud of the delicate look.
  2. Paint the ceiling an precise colour, however hold it very mild in order that it’s simply sufficient to point out a distinction between the trim/bubble mild and the ceiling. I may perhaps attempt the wall colour at 10% or one thing like that. Or,
  3. I may attempt one thing inventive with the precise mild, and discover a technique to make the “bubbles” a really mild, delicate colour whereas nonetheless holding them translucent. Y’all know I really like an excellent practical artwork mission (like my pantry backsplash tiles), and this could be a enjoyable experimental, inventive mission. (You possibly can see what colour on a bubble mild seems to be like right here. I wouldn’t need that colour — it’s method too darkish — however it provides you an thought.)

The humorous factor is that I began off scripting this put up leaning in direction of portray the ceiling. However I believe I’ll have simply talked myself into an artwork mission, as a result of I’d like to see what it might appear to be if I may add some very delicate colour to these bubbles! I’ll give it some extra thought. I’ve a couple of days earlier than my new order arrives, and I can’t end the sunshine till then anyway. However don’t you assume a really delicate (and nonetheless translucent) colour on these bubbles could be fairly?
