Bathroom Redesign with little monies

Today we will take a break from furniture Redesigns and I will show you my spare bathroom.  It was in dire need of a quick spruce up.  Company coming and all.  My daughter asked if we were ever going to do "something" with that room.  So the pressure was on!

 This is the AFTER of course:

 This is the before............................

Oh wait in this photo we have already painted the upper portion of the walls but you can see it was a manila yellow color and those two white spots going up and down were where we took out the handicapped handles the two horizontal white spots are the towel bar holes.  The handicapped patches have been there almost a year.  That could be why the mention of "are you going to do anything with that room?" comment.

So we painted the room a very light sage green/grey

Below the fresh paint I added Beadboard wallpaper I bought from Rhoda @ You can find it here.  It is really nice and thick wallpaper.  Seriously you can not tell the difference from the real thing.

 I put it up real high as is the trend now......

 As I said this was done with little monies so none of the tile or fixtures were changed in this process.

Purely superficial.  Just had to show you this disaster lurking behind the light fixture....  Can you imagine this wallpaper in this little bathroom.. I mean WOW  crazy!!

After all the wallpaper was up Mr. Sensible added a 1x6 that I had painted up to cover the top of the wallpaper.

We added hooks for the towels and bought a new shower curtain that I clearly didn't iron before or ever when  I took the picture.

If you go back a few pictures you might notice that the knobs on the cabinet are brass and now the towel holders are brushed silver.  Well as luck would have it our kitchen had brushed silver knobs and we changed them all out in another Redesign for little monies.  I saved them so coming up with two brushed silver ones was no problem. The faucet was a little bigger issue however.  The brass would not do.  So as this bathroom is very seldom used except for aforementioned company we fixed that problem with....... you guessed it spray paint!

A Happy New Room for Company... Daughter approves too ;)
