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.
So, I decided to use the remaining brick paneling in my bathroom
however, paint it white this time.
(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…
(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!!!
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 soooo cheap & soooo worth it!
I absolutely LOVE the feeling of creating a space you absolutely adore
from a space you really weren’t that crazy about before…
