Yay!! I am so excited to finally be sharing pictures of my guest bathroom! I have been doing bits and pieces since we renovated last year, and I am excited to be DONE, well…for now, ha! I went bold, super bold, and decided to wallpaper the whole darn thing. I FINALLY tried out removable wallpaper (so good!) and removable adhesive tile (crazy, right?). So it’s perfect for the person who loves to switch up their space often, and renters looking for a temporary change! And stay tuned, because tomorrow I am going to be posting a full tutorial on the tile backspash.
I fell in loooooove with this wallpaper, I was going back and forth about just doing one wall or everything, and I ended up just going for it! The process was easy with two people, and took 4ish hours to do my whole bathroom, and the only problem we ran into were my crocked walls. But with some finesse and strategically placed plants, we made it work! I just think it pairs perfectly with the tile, and even though it’s bold, the white space kept it from being overwhelming. And since it’s removable, the commitment level is low…perfect! The best thing is that Chasing Paper is printed in Milwaukee!!! I grabbed drinks with the founder, Elizabeth, and she is my new favorite person, I CAN NOT WAIT to keep on covering my walls with their beautiful product!
I never did a post on this bathroom after the HTGV pilot aired, because it was a little boring, and I knew I wanted to do something fun at some point. I remember the picking of the tile to be so stressful because I wanted a bold cement one, but the quick timing for the flip and budget left me with slim pickings. I found the oversized hexagon at the local Tile Shop, and got it for an insanely cheap deal, so I went with that and a subway tile with darker grout for the shower. Keeping it a simple base for bolder design choices down the road. Sidenote: White grout on a bathroom floor = bad idea!

Does anyone else have a song lyric that plays in their head over and over when they go in a room? This one was stuck in mine, so made it’s way onto the shelf, with all the other bathroom goodies…including the little containers I acquired from my last hotel stay 😉

I know some people don’t looooove a bathroom off the kitchen, but I love this little view. The little pop of greenery works perfectly with the rest of the space, and it makes me so happy to look in this direction when the sun is beaming in 🙂 I would love to hear what you all think about the makeover!! And if you have any other sourcing questions leave a question in the comments and I wall make sure to answer!
Yay! It’s time for another room makeover! My amazing friend, Melissa (everyone around here knows her as the creator of MilwaukeeHome), moved into a new house with her hubs and baby boy. The home is super cute, but they they had the dreaded statement red wall in the dining room…just like every Wisconsin home not been renovated since the 2000’s. She was using the space as a playroom, but really wanted somewhere to eat dinner as family. So we swooped in with some paint and gave the room a makeover, it’s amazing how a fresh coat can give a space a whole new life!
Can we talk about these chairs!?! I saw them at the Sauder showroom at Highpoint and became OBSESSED with finding a space to use them in. They are the perfect shade green, and the perfect matte finish. They are such a statement, I knew I wanted to keep the rest of the room a neutral palette.
Everyday dining will proooooobably not be as fancy as this setup, but we really wanted to do up the table for their little family. Sometimes it’s nice to go a little overboard for a new Mom 😉 The danger of decorating is I always end up buying an extra set for myself…ooops! So the speckled plates and matte black silverware might look familiar from pics of my house.
We put a shelving unit in a back closet area they were not using, and tuned it into a bar area. I LOVE this “You Are Here” sign (I bought one for my home too), that’s actually a framed tea towel that I found on a trip to Minnesota.
I am obsessed with the planter, and knew it would be perfect in the corner with a tree, to add a little height and greenery to the room.
I know you all have seen this art before in my bedroom, weeeelll the art I bought for the makeover did not arrive on time for the shoot, so I grabbed this one off my wall, and now it has a new home, ha! Guess it’s time to buy something new for my room #notcomplaining
Shopping credits after the break! (more…)
I’m back with another fun room makeover! This time we transition Lori’s nursery into a woodsy themed room for her son (remember his camp playroom? And Lori’s bedroom oasis?). Buffalo check is my current favorite, so I was jazzed when I saw that Lori had already purchase some plaid items for the room. I took that theme and ran with it! My favorite part of the room is the chalkboard wall and live edge desk. You should have seen how excited Liam was when we told him he could draw on the wall!
I have become quite the hoarder of live edge pieces of wood, and this one worked perfectly as a little desk. I sanded down the sharp corners and covered with 2 coats of a fast-drying polyurethane, then drilled shelf brackets into the studs and the bottom of the wood.
I debated painting the whole wall or just doing 3/4, and am super happy we left a little space and added the mountain range decals, it adds a little more fun to the room, no? Lori found this crazy cute tree book holder that created the perfect reading corner next to the oversized bead bag.
We upgraded Liam from a crib to bunkbeds (the ladder is in hiding until he is ready to safety climb)! I am in love with the blue, it’s the perfect shade!
I found some line drawings of a lantern and other woodsy things, and the plan was to get a projector, but they ended up being simple enough to freehand (the magic of chalk is that you can mess up as much as you want, and wipe it away!) Hope you like the room as much as Liam did!
