Cottage Bathroom Makeover {Texture Love}

Cottage Bathroom Makeover {Texture Love}/ Snippets of DesignI have had an awkward guest bathroom that has badly

needed to be redecorated for years.

It is bigger than a normal guest bathroom but for some reason,

they never added a shower or a bathtub.

Many ideas have gone through my head on what to do with this

odd room but I decided what I really like the most is texture.

After having extra brick paneling left over from my living room.

I decided that what I really fall completely in love with is textures.

Pottery Barn style “cottagy” textures.

BIG Thank You to my awesome friend John who helped pull off my crazy vision!!! Thanks John! You”re the best!

So, I decided to use the remaining brick paneling in my bathroom

and paint it white with my favorite paint Glidden® High Endurance Plus Paint+Primer in eggshell/satin white.

(Swoooooon…) I love white painted brick :)

We nailed the panels up & I painted them when I painted them white.

I bought cheap pine strips of wood from Home Depot® so

I could add some texture to the walls…

They were in the “rough wood”/construction section & only cost between

a $1 & $2 per piece depending on the width.

Some pieces had fun knots and in them but it added to the charm…

BEFORE Cottage Bathroom Makeover {Texture Love}/ Snippets of DesignWe framed in the window & the mirror to give the room a “finished” feeling.

(Glue the framing on the mirror using liquid nails or something, nails would break it)

We created the wainscoting on the walls  using 4″ wide pieces across the top & bottom

& 2″ pieces on the walls approximately 1’1/2″ apart.

We nailed them in & caulked them to look finished before painting them.

I also wanted to texture up the ceiling…yes, I got greedy but I LOVE it so much!!!

Cottage Bathroom Makeover {Texture Love}/ Snippets of DesignI had some extra wood in my garage and there is an odd niche in my ceiling

so I decided to tie it in and make it lovable…

We cut some plywood  into thick, even strips.

Then we cut some 2′ x 4’s the width of the ceiling.

We again, nailed them to the ceiling leaving spaces in-between the plywood

& I caulked the edges to the wainscoting.

I then painted everything white, including the light because I wasn’t going to replace it yet.

For a simple curtain, I bought a linen curtain from Target & I used vintage flat railroad nails to put it up.

I love the simplistic & natural feel of it all…

The cabinet is a vintage cabinet that I used to have in my kitchen (which I also redecorated)

I love it & although I didn’t repaint it yet I am sure I will sometime soon. ;)

It fits perfectly in my awkward bathroom  for now however. :)

What do you think?

This room was a little time consuming but it was inexpensive & completely worth the time.

I absolutely LOVE the feeling of creating a space you absolutely adore

from a space you really weren’t that crazy about before…
