After painting the bedroom, I was pretty sure I would never paint anything again. It took three days. Then, about 24 hours later I decided to paint the bathroom. Who knows how the human brain works?
I painted it the same color as the bedroom, Fudge Bar by Behr. While I was thrilled by the new look of the bedroom, I was less thrilled with the bathroom.

The night stand is permanently missing 2 knobs and the dresser has one that's only setting there, but falls off if you touch it.
I switched to these metal knobs:
