bathroom refresh ~ the walls

Happy Thursday, sweet friends!!!

I’ve been working on my boys’ bathroom for what seems like months, in reality, it’s only been a few weeks. I keep starting, but can’t seem to finish, because I get distracted with other projects. I am determined to get this space completely done by the end of this week!

Today, I want to show y’all what I have done on the walls, skinny lap and simple panels…

The skinny lap ended up being less than $15! I only used five 2x4s, cut (using a table saw) into 1/4in strips.

I used nickels to space each board.

I finished it off with a three inch strip of 1/4in mdf.

Now time to paint….

My original plan was to add a stencil on the top part of the wall, just above the skinny lap. I started on a small area of the wall…

So soft and so subtle! I liked it, but my boys didn’t, so I came up with something else.

I decided to add some simple panels made from half round trim. I made these panels by cutting 45 degree angles with my miter saw. If you want some tips and tricks for cutting moldings, you can click HERE to check out a blog post that I wrote about cutting and adding moldings. I started by taping (using painters tape) one panel to the wall, just to make sure that I liked it, before I committed.

I liked the panel, so I grabbed my nail gun, and went for it!

Then, I decided to add one more piece of half round trim across the entire wall (I taped it up first, just to make sure)…

I caulked the edges, filled the nail holes, and painted the panels.

The color that I used is a Benjamin Moore color, called “soft chamois”

What’s left to do in this space?

• Clean up all of the paint that I carelessly splattered on the floors. So fun, right?!!

• faucet

•light fixture

• rug

• finishing details (my favorite part!)

I’m hoping to get this done soon so I can show y’all the entire space! I’m excited!
