Guest Bathroom Makeover With Painted Striped Walls

25 September 2010

This feature is from Cassie at Hi Sugarplum!  She is featuring her guest bathroom makeover with stripes.

Unlike my son's room makeover, I did not complete the 'sprucing up' of this Guest Bathroom in two weeks,  nor was it my only focus. I also didn't have a vision for it when I started....I had a wild hair to paint stripes, so I did. I thought the cabinets would look better dark, so I painted those. One thing led to another, and several months later I have a completely 'new' bathroom. 

And did I mention there wasn't really a budget either, since I wasn't technically 'making it over?' Yay for paint and bargain accessories! 

No 'Before & After' is complete without the 'Before'...so let's get started:

Nothing wrong with it, per se. But there was definitely no personality. 
And AFTER!!!

The first step was adding darker stripes to warm things up and add the much needed energy.

Framing the mirror gave it a more refined and polished look. The light fixture, paper holder and potty handle got a coat of brushed nickel spray paint.

after 7

More depth and richness by painting the cabinets a dark espresso....now the cute Anthropologie knobs actually show!

after 5

Some inexpensive 'art' thanks to favorite beach silhouette photos and Ikea frames. The capiz tray was a $5 steal from Home Goods, and keeps with the beachy theme of the room. The shell, candle and plant I already owned.


The one true expense in the room was the faucet. I gave my son free reign ... and I think he did pretty good choosing the waterfall style! Handwashing and teethbrushing are a little bit more fun now.


I still liked my World Market palm tree shower curtain, but I didn't like how all the bath toys became visible as soon as the sun appeared in that window! I lucked out with the Greek Key curtain for $12 from Marshalls, and I like the modern edge it lends.

We have three bathrooms in the house, but this one is closest to the front door, so it serves as the Powder Room. It also happens to be the kid's bath (when they aren't invading ours!)

after 6

I'll eventually paint the ceiling, but for now it's 'complete,' and I'm really happy.

Nice job with the guest bathroom makeover!  I like the stripes and dark cabinet.  What do you think?
