We loved our dining room wall treatment so much, that we decided to do something similar in the half bath.
Recently Steve and I were able to go off on a vacation AND leave the kids behind. We’re so thankful to have two sets of parents who are able to help, and the kids split their time between them (and thoroughly enjoyed the week with Gramma & Grandpa and Nana & Papa).
I knew that I needed a project for my retired dad who needs to be busy all the time (see where I get it?!), so I left him the plan and supplies for the half bath wall paneling.
Before I left for the trip, I drew the lines and did the math for the trim.
I also removed the bottom half of my starched fabric wall. (Want to see the full tutorial? Click HERE.) I used a ruler and an x-acto knife to cut away the fabric, and the wall was PERFECT when I pulled off the starched fabric. It was ready to go – I didn’t have to do any repairs or scrub away any extra starch.
I wish I had the full tutorial for this, but the technique was very similar to what we did with the wall in the dining room. My dad used nails for the trim and tried to find studs whenever possible.
We caulked the trim and nail holes. The wall, molding and existing bottom trim was all painted the same color – a very light cream.
I bought special corner trim for the corners to make the project easier.
I found the mirror online at Pottery Barn and the lights are from Lowe’s.
I am searching for an antique restroom sign, but until I find one, my Ebay reproduction will have to work.
