As you all know, we are in the process of updating our master bath and I wanted to share with you a few of the things we will be doing to make this room lovable at long last! Yesterday, I shared my short list of lighting candidates here. Today, let's take a look at the walls.
Our master bedroom has a navy, red and green floral comforter and of course, I could kind of keep going with that idea into the bathroom. However, I am choosing to go with a more neutral palette. Knowing me, comforters come and go with the seasons and I want to keep the small bathroom to a neutral palette. Besides, there is so much going on in this little bath that pattern would be too much!
With the comforter as a backdrop, here are a few bits and pieces of what will be going on the walls. I scored two pieces of vintage ceiling tile that I will be using on the wall behind the toilet, along with beadboard wall paper and dark wood trim. I love, love, love the worn, chippy finish. Junk to some, but beautiful to me! Most of the wall area will be just plain painted drywall.
Here is a closeup. The upper part is similar to a crown molding, with raised metal carving and the flat portion has an almost honeycomb appearance. The coat rack will be used for hanging bath towels.
I will be painting the walls a creamy white, called Milk Paint, and the cider oak vanity will be getting a coffee colored coat of paint, appropriately named Ground Coffee. The floor and window trim will be a simple, bright white.
A closer look at the coat rack. It is not old, but rather a Hobby Lobby find.
I received a gift card from my employer for Christmas and I decided to see how far I could stretch it in finishing touches for this re-do. I placed my online order today and spent all but .43 of it! I think you will be impressed on how far that $100 takes me in completing the room. Believe it or not, Walmart.com has some great things on line!
Lastly, here is another look at my lighting contestants. Feel free to pick a favorite and let me know in the comments. I will be placing an order soon. I am torn between two of them now...and I would love to hear what you have to say!
I will be back soon with "the rest of the plan" and the other items we will be using to finish up this room re-do. What's on your spring to do list?
Thanks for stopping by,
