DIY DESIGN | Guest Bathroom Makeover


Last Summer, I showed you all my bathroom makeover here, and when I posted that I was thinking of redoing it on @ispydiy Instagram, a lot of you though I was crazy, but I wanted the bathroom to be a little calmer, plus the since the 125 year old walls are not straight, and the wallpaper had a couple gaps that were driving me insane! To fix that, I did a board and batten treatment on the lower part of the wall, tutorial here, and just wallpapered the top. I used Chasing Paper’s removable wallpaper,  so the removing the old stuff was SUPER simple, it pealed right off. I picked the Botany print because it’s softer and felt super calming…read on for details or head to the end of the post for shopping credits!
I went back and forth on the color of the board and batten, I like this soft gray by Behr – Statuesque, but thought it might be too boring, so got a few samples of bolder grays, peaches and pinks, but all seemed to intense next to the hexagon floors and the white door trim. I should have trusted my first instinct because I ended up going back and getting at gallon of Statuesque, and I LOVE it! It’s hard to tell in the pictures, but it’s a little darker then the trim, which is Ultra White by HGTV for Sherwin Williams, and works beautifully with the clay background of the wallpaper and the gray floors.
Two updates in the room that I am SO HAPPY with are the little stool in the corner and the new art. The Tana stool is from Article and is just so beautiful. I actually ended up getting two more for the livingroom and added a wax and oil coat on them, but left the one in the bathroom au natural because I love the softer wood tone. And the art from Society 6 tied the whole bathroom together! I just love this one, called Bath, and the floral art, Spring, a few photos down, the colors were perfectly muted.

I have been *trying” to cut down on Target purchases and use more DIY and antique finds, but these hooks were so darn cute I had to get them! I love how they tie together with the black sink, and they have little slots for tags if you want to give everyone in your family their own hook #targetdoesitagain ISPYDIY_Bathroom_makeover3

    love the board and batten you added, but think I preferred the other green paper, just on color alone.

    1. Jenni says:
