(This is the only bathroom in the house by the way. I have a tiny 2 bedroom, 1 bath home.)
The fruits of my labor...
Love my cast iron bathtub.
It's not really a complete before and after bathroom makeover. I still have a few more things I would like to do before it's finally finished, but I think I'm going to wait and do those projects next year. I am on the hunt for a white roman shade to replace the plastic blinds right now though. I ordered some from Ebay and had to return them because they got all bent up during shipping. They were JC Penney brand and I didn't like them. They didn't hang right.
I would eventually like to:
- Get bamboo floors to replace the old vinyl.
- Get a marble countertop to replace the laminate counters.
- Re-tile the bottom of the shower floor.
The wallpaper I got was by Kathy Ireland Home. The print is called Garden Silhouette, the item ID is NL58196. I got the first roll from Sherwin Williams, then had to order 2 additional rolls from Total Wallcovering.
It's environmentally friendly, prepasted, breathable, washable and fully removable.
I would just like to say, I wouldn't have purchased this wallpaper had I known how much waste there was going to be. I had to cut off so much in order to get the next row to line up as I was putting each sheet up. As you can see, there is only half of a wall to do in a tiny bathroom. It took 3 double rolls! Now I know why people don't wallpaper anymore. lol I am just so glad that project is over. I'm surprised I didn't wallpaper myself to the wall!
Some of the wasted wallpaper that didn't get used.
I love how it turned out. I like the organic feel and look it gives the bathroom. I wasn't sure what to do with such a dated room. When anyone would walk into my bathroom, I would say, welcome to 1963. I mean, how do you update something like this? lol I changed out the light fixture over the mirror and I replaced the faucet for the sink. Remember my bathroom flood?
Slowly but surely each room is starting to fall into place. I can't wait to get my bedroom, I mean the *guest* bedroom finished now! I have so many fun ideas for it! I'll post pics of what I have been doing in there next, so come back. :)
