This is a greenish beige, and should never ever be used in a bathroom. Not only that, it's fairly dark, so not only did I need 2 coats of paint, but I had to prime too. I hate priming!!
Before I painted the bathroom, I took some advice from pinterest and stained the existing cabinets with General Finishes Gel Stain in Java. It took 4 coats, but it was worth it.
I also replaced that light fixture which again, required me to cut the drywall, install a metal electrical box, and then patch, tape, and spackle. Ugh. (The master bathroom has these kinds of lights too...I am putting off replacing those)
The new paint color is Benjamin Moore Yarmouth Blue, which I love!

Our new house has 1 less bedroom than our previous house, so we have lost a guest room (and my sewing space--sniff sniff). We gave the queen size guest bed to my eldest daughter. I made the headboard for that bed probably 8-9 years ago using plywood, 2x4's, foam, fabric, and a heck of a lot of staples. Here is a photo of it before:
After covering up the Bleeker Beige in her new room with primer & 2 coats of "Grape Ice" paint, I got to work on covering the headboard. I ordered several samples from fabric.com and chose this one by Premier Prints:

One seam and a zillion staples later, boom! New headboard:
