Remodeling Guy Round-Up

Ready for the Round Up?

Welcome to the world's smallest master bathroom! I think it measures around 5x8. That's OK though since I hate to clean bathrooms it doesn't take me long.

It had a faux finish that I painted 4-5 years ago that just seemed a little blah. I saw the board and batten technique on a blog (can't remember which one), fell in love and knew I had to do that in my bathroom.

I still need to install a white outlet and switch as well a piece of quarter round by the vanity.

Here are before pictures: (Boy, is it hard to take a pic in a small space!)

Here are the after pictures:

  • The paint color is Impressionist by Ralph Lauren but is Sherwin Williams Cashmere paint (the best paint!). I already had this from our powder room.
  • I painted the vanity black using Sherwin Williams paint for cabinets and changed the hardware.
  • I used MDF strips from Lowes for the Board & Batten technique. They were only $2 something for a 10' strip. I had to do THREE coats of white semi-gloss paint. I hate doing more than two! I also caulked each strip and the top.
  • Fabric from Walmart at only $4.44 per yard. Isn't it beautimous?!
  • Flooring from Home Depot and we already had most of it from our kitchen.
Total cost was around $50 for everything! The best part is that I get to hear how beautiful it is from Mr K. Ahhh, it's good to be appreciated.
