The homeowners thought this bathroom was too dark and wanted to brighten it up a bit. (no “before” picture…sorry)
They called on me for some help.
So here is what I did to lighten up this small space.
The walls were already painted Wethersfield Moss by Benjamin Moore, which is a really pretty green. There was no trim on the walls so to make this bath look fresh and bright I added the board and batten wainscoting.
Since the baseboards were in good condition we left them alone.
Above the baseboards I stacked the same material as the vertical slats.
Those slats are actually hard board cut into 2 1/2 inch strips applied 12 inches apart.
Hard board comes in 4X8 foot sheets and it’s cheaper for materials if you don’t mind cutting your vertical slats down yourself. I have also purchased lattice in pine that is already smooth and comes in 2 5/8 inches wide for this same purpose.
I double stacked the top molding in the same way.
The reds and khaki greens were brought in to coordinate with the color scheme from the rest of the house.
A simple garden hook was attached to the rustic custom frame I made for the mirror.
An easy hand towel solution.
Fresh white wall vases hang from bronze iron star buttons.
I love using these vases for wall art in a bathroom.
You can find that greenery and the vases at IKEA.
The creamy white cabinet was once a blue color that no longer fit in with the colors of this house. We spray painted it and now it’s perfect for a little storage.
