I talked to my handy-man...Bob, aka Dad. He was willing to help (he did 90% of the task) me put the bead board up. So off to Lowes...bead board, chair rail and panel adhesive...$120~ Wait! I am on a budget! Ok, I can handle not feeding the kids this week :)
I didn't think to take pictures until I had taken down the couple of pictures on the wall, and we had already taken the molding off around the floor.
So, here is the before...
Just a box for a bathroom
I had already taken the mirror down. Notice the pipes showing under the sink? Well, that has bugged me since we bought our house almost three years ago! I hate that sink!
I really didn't have a design idea...the only thing I knew is that I wanted bead board in the bathroom. So, here is the first completed sheet of bead board up...
Already I love it! It took my dad and I a couple of days to complete this project. I bet it would have gone a lot faster without the hustle and bustle of kids!
Originally I wanted to paint the upper half the soldier blue that is really popular right now...but now that the bead board is up, I think I will keep it the tan color.
This is the new vanity and mirror. It was not in the budget to buy the vanity and mirror. But, sometimes you have to realize your limitations! Cutting the bead board around those pipes was a joke! So, to save the frustration level from going out of control, I made the executive decision to go back to Lowes. So, as much as I hated spending the money, I love the fact that the pipes are no longer showing, plus the vanity has storage in it!
Much better view from the hallway!
The only thing missing is that I want a white shelf to go right under the wreath on the wall. Other than that, done!
