Bathroom Makeover Reveal – AH Crafty Challenge

Some projects just seem to fall in place easier than others. This was one of them, and I’m very happy with the results. The hallway bathroom was just plain ugly.

Hall bathroom in desperate need of a makeover – Week 15 AH Crafty Challenge

After scouring Pinterest I came up with my plan A list – I only had a few B plans happen, but it made for good results (I think).

  • paint the walls buttery yellow
  • paint the vanity – gray chalk paint
  • take out that shower curtain that came with the house – I have a solid white one with a few ruffles at the top and bottom; I might be able to modify a bit with some gray and yellow fabric.
  • frame out the mirror with pallet wood – Jerry found a great spot / source for pallet and cabinet wood
  • the wood storage crate on the wall – add a shelf for more storage
  • create wall art – use Silhouette

Overall the only things I changed up from my original plan was the purchase of a new shower curtain, instead of making my own artwork, I hung one of my favorite vintage Paint by Numbers, and added a basket rather than add a shelf to the vintage crate. Perfect!

The bathroom vanity was painted a super stark ultra white high gloss…ick! That was the first change on the list. I painted it a nice gray with Websters chalk paint. We hit Ace for paint, and Target for the shower curtain; I was a little disappointed because Target didn’t have the shower curtain I wanted. I was resistant, but hung this one instead. It took until the very end until I decided I like it.

Jerry used pallet boards to frame out the mirror. I’ve seen this out there, read blogs, but this steel wool &  (1 cup) apple cider vinegar sludge actually does add nice age to new looking boards.Rental House Bathroom Makeover - Frame Out Mirror and Paint Vanity

We were almost done with the bathroom makeover, JC grabbed the antlers from the garage, and I love them in there. The antlers are the cherry on top!

My next project will need to have less to do’s on the list, but I love how this turned out.
