Good afternoon to you on this rainy Monday. This dull weather has me dreaming of all things bright and refreshed. I’m dreaming of redoing our main floor half bathroom in a simple black and white colour scheme. This bathroom has never been a priority in the whole scheme of things and I want to change that. This is the bathroom our guests use when they come over and I want it to look nice. Let’s be honest, it’s been the same since 2006 and I’m itching to update it. Come on, look at this – no bueno!
This was the before and progress shots from way back in 2006 not long after we first bought our house mid 2005.
This is the after shot when I did a quick makeover and it’s still the same today. Isn’t it screaming to be lightened and brightened?!
I’m dreaming of incorporating crisp white, painted horizontal wood planks going up about two thirds of the way up the walls. The top third I’d love to use wallpaper, something black and white with a fun pattern maybe. A horizontal black mirror flanking the main wall above the vanity and toilet, topped off with a little sparkle in chandelier form. I’d reuse the vanity and reinvent it with some white paint and maybe a new counter top, a new sink and faucet too. I created this little mock up to give you a better visual. Wouldn’t this be so pretty?!
I can’t wait to tackle this – I’m hoping it gets pushed to the top of my list sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed.
I wish you a great week, friends!
