redid our guest bathroom this past winter. this picture is the beadboard that we created from an old church pew ... bought it for 15 bucks years ago and it was starting to rot from being outside ... tore it apart and made the beadboard wall ....
closer shot of the beadboard - you would never know this was a bench would you? :)
Giani Granite Paint - if youve never seen this product check it out ... it is a paint that gives the look of granite .... 70 bucks for a kit and I will be able to do both my upstairs bathrooms!!!! lots cheaper than granite :)
leftover tiles from master bathroom - wood trim is more of that church pew ...
vanity we took from master bathroom (flea market find - 15 bucks - refinished) - fits better above the smaller vanity .... only thing we had to buy was the wall paint ....

My husband and I had nothing better to do in the baseball off season, so we took on yet another room make over ... by the end of the year we should have ALL rooms in our home redone!!! This bathroom suffered from an old paint technique gone terribly wrong ... the ugly builders grade vanity (in ugly brown stain) and the old "dressing room" vanity lights ... YUK!!! I think the final project turned out great ... I don't think we spent more than $100 for paint, fixtures (all bought at the salvage store for pennies on the dollar compared to going to Lowe's)


Pattern or design used: My own design

I do use regular cleaning products in the sink and on the fixtures .... just wipe the countertop first and it's done!!! I am going to use this again ... I hear they now have a marble looking paint too!!!

good luck! Posted: 5:33 am on September 12th
