Let's just go back in time a bit - back to late 2011 when we stepped foot into this little fixer upper, looked around and thought...yep, this one is it. Our little house was pretty boring - actually extremely boring. The walls and ceilings were a cream color - the carpet, brown - and the bathroom...well, the bathroom was nearly beige from floor to ceiling.
It was a nice breath of fresh air but the last little piece that would tie the whole room together was just eating at me to get finished. Before we started installing the wall treatment, we replaced the old window and then installed a vanity light to add additional lighting.
Finally, to wrap this room up and officially move it from Progress to After, we created a beadboard/board and batten wall treatment. The wall treatment gives the bathroom a nice classic decorative finish which is reminiscent of both our home's era and the casual beachy style of the interior, plus it protects the walls from wear and tear.
For those that are interested in the step-by-step process, check out my latest Houzz Ideabook, Beadboard Panels Offer a Shortcut to a Classic Style, which details our custom DIY board & batten / beadboard wall treatment.
So what about you guys? What updates have you done lately? Any bathroom makeovers to brag about?
