I would like to share my recent guest bathroom redo. When we purchased the house it came complete with lots of 1980's style wallpaper. I lived with it for a while only because there were other things in the house where we wanted to put our money first but the time finally came when that wallpaper came down.
I wish I had taken more pictures before I redid the bathroom and other rooms in the house but at that time, I wasn't really into taking pictures. Things have sure changed...now I love taking pictures. Anyway, here is my other picture of the bathroom before we purchased the home and before I redid it.
I used my secret weapon to remove the wallpaper...my homemade wallpaper remover spray. You will never guess what I found underneath this wallpaper.
Even uglier wallpaper! It was quite the style but certainly not mine. I persevered and removed that wallpaper too. Next I patched up the walls where there were holes, and dings with some joint compound. I also taped and bedded the walls in preparation for new textured walls. I scraped the popcorn ceilings and retextured the ceiling. I used a roll on texture and painted the walls a pretty blue.
The new colors allowed me to use my pretty glass collection and seashells. I also changed the light fixtures, faucets, handles, towel bar, and hooks to give my bathroom a fresh updated look.
A new coat of fresh white paint for all the woodwork brightened the room.
Now you have seen my guest bathroom redo. What are you working on in your house? I would love to hear about it in the comments.
