Spa Bath Creation
Nothing bothers me much more than having a bathroom with no character and my usual preference over the years has always a seashore spa personality, even before they became popular. i have found some before photos which I will attempt to edit as I see I have not followed the good format a recommended by Admin.
The room is small but did already have new tub, sink, toilet and window. My only new purchases were Martha Stewart Bead Board Wallpaper and 2 gallons of premixed paint colors from Habitat for Humanity restore in Calgary, AB for $5 each
Created my beach 3D accent pieces from old second hand frames bought many years ago (just knew they would be good for something someday), sandpaper for background and glued on variety of seashells gathered on a trip to San Carlos Mexico
Applying the wallpaper required wallpaper glue on pre-sanded walls and pantry door for good adhesion. I then painted the wallpaper and wall above it in my 2 beach colors and separated the 2 with an old baseboard which served 2 purposes of a rail dividing colors and solid base for hooks ( old hooks garnered from an area of my walk-in closet that had no usable purpose for me there)
Prior to adding hooks, I sanded and re-painted in high gloss: all trim of baseboards, wall rail, old mirror (I had removed a medicine cabinet) created from a picture frame and old mirror that just happened to fit. My magnifying make-up mirror located on my wide window sill gives perfect light for that job. I also added a few pieces of green glass in trays, and bottles.
- Martha Stewart Bead Board Wallpaper (Home Depot)
- Cloverdale reject bathroom paint from Restore (Habitat Restore)
- All remaining items used were used things I already had on hand
