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 from Lowe’s® left over from my living room.

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

Pottery Barn® style “cottag-ee” 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 Lowe’s® 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…
