This is right after we upgraded our sink and faucet.

Check out the inside of our little downstairs restroom. You don't know what claustrophobia is until you go in there. icon
Here is the after!
First thing after the sink was this door. We wanted an industrial textured looking door and I think we nailed it. For this look we:

-Cleaned and primed the door
-Two coats of acrylic black

For this texture we used
-Navy blue chalk paint mixed with wood glue, joint compound and chalk.
We didn't use a specific mixture. Go nuts and experiment like crazy! icon

We wife sponge painted details with a a different shade of blue and a dark red and then gave the door two poly topcoats to finish it off. The texture will not scratch off. It is incredibly durable!

I also did the door and window frame with the same colors minus the texture. I removed all of the paint from those with a heat gun and then primed and painted.

I can totally understand people hating this look, but we LOVE it! icon

It looks great from down the hallway too!
I painted my coffin sized half bath this lovely grey and then added the wood ceiling, moldings, trims and shelf. The ceiling is actually being held up by the moulding around it. I didn't attach any of the wood to the ceiling. My lovely wife decorated.
We found this light pendant on sale! My wife painted it to match the door and I wired it into the ceiling.
I love cord decor. I had some extra ceramic knobs from my cord decor project

I used antique wire and wrapped it around the knobs.
There you have it! This was an extremely fun project to do with my wife. The best part is we have the exact same half bath upstairs that we can tackle together next with different designs and ideas.

    I think you did a great job. My one question is that sink hard to clean? It looks so bump. Lol Thank you.

    It is really lovely. My question had to do with the sink. Where did you find that? Or did you make it? Fabulous!
