I know the craziness about shiplap but I started way before Joanna and Chip. As you can see my past posting of the wall for backpacks. I know it is a different shiplap.
Anyway, I wanted to change our bathroom (builder grade) but not to spend a ton of money. Have the usual brown bathroom vanities, frameless mirrors, nowhere to put our towels and I had enough of our laundry basket.
My husband and I decided to make one wall out of shiplap. Of course the hardest with window openings, outlets ,bathtub...oh well, we started it so we had to finish it.

This is how looked like before we started.
Started with the blue wall. Got to go. Do you see that empty wall between the two doors? That's where I figured we can put our storage/laundry shelf built in.
Getting ready to spray paint
Painted the vanity the same color as the built in. It is dark grey from Benjamin Moore
During the project. Window was a mess created by the builder. Needed to fix it. They used lots of caulk to hide mistakes
This is after the shiplap and the framed mirror.
Here it is. The bottom part of it with the handle hides the dirty clothes.
The built in

  • Shiplap   (Homedepot)

    You did a great job on your 'new' bathroom - definitely an inspiration! However, my question concerns your 'before' wall color. Do you recall the name of that paint, and would you be willing to share it with me? Thanks.

    Another thought for the glass block wall is putting a picture on it where the light can shine through it and still bring light in but you don't see the glass blocks it would have to be specially made and would have to be a piece of screening material that is painted with a design on it of your choice. This way the glass blocks we'll bring the light in but you won't see them
