Bathroom DIY Inspiration
I’ve been contemplating an update to my guest bathroom for a while now. It is also the bathroom that I use on a daily basis. We have a bathroom attached to our bedroom but it must the be world’s tiniest master bath and Mr. Menace claimed it as his own the day we moved in. That’s ok with me. I need space.
The guest bath is much larger, although its not especially roomy. It had a linen closet, a double clothes closet, and a large vanity with lots of storage. I say “had” because not too long after we moved in, my Mama and my sister came to see me and I gave the task of opening up the clothes closet, and decorating it, to my sister. This involved taking off the closet doors, removing the clothes rod and shelf, and decorating.
She did an excellent job and I’ve lived with it like that for probably 3 years now and its been great. But one day, I was in the bathroom and I had sat down on the floor to try to clean around the pocket door opening. When I looked up at the linen closet door, I knew there were just TOO many doors for such a small room and I had the brilliant idea of also removing the whole linen closet. This would give me room to actually put a piece of furniture in the room! I’d still have the huge vanity under the sink and I would move in my Aunt Modie’s buffet which would store lots of towels and toiletries. EUREKA!
Last winter I planned to get three different areas of the house painted. a-hem… I did get the bedroom painted (and it looks marvelous by the way) but we had a short mild winter and I never got around to the other two, one of which was the guest (my) bathroom.
I know what you are thinking and you are right! The inspiration board doesn’t look much like a bathroom. Bear with me.
My tile is white. I plan to paint the rest of the wall white also. That blue door in the inspiration board? That’s the ceiling color. With gold sparkles. 🙂
My Aunt Modie’s buffet, which is like the one in the second photo on this post, will be painted more like the one on the inspiration board. And my chair that is in the bathroom at the moment will get the gilded treatment like my inspiration. I intend to make some jewelry storage and display which will either sit on the buffet or hang above it. I am thinking one will be similar to the inspiration 3 tier cake plate.
Now for a tour around the BEFORE bathroom:
I am excited to get this project underway! (I’m also a tiny bit nervous.)
I’d love to hear any ideas or suggestions you might have.
