Cute Striped Wall Update for Half Bath

Cute Striped Wall Update for Half Bath

Last time I used the words "half bath" in a post, it was the 21st of May and I was wrapping myself in painters tape in an attempt to make stripes on the walls. (I considered doing that again in red, white, and blue tape as a "GO AMERICA" salute to the upcoming holiday, but I decided that wouldn't be all that cute. Sorta like a Lady Gaga ensemble, but with less need for controversial refrigeration.)

Anyway, we still have some more things to do (ceiling light fixture, finish painting the trim, cover up the washer and dryer that currently share this space, update the sockets and switches so they aren't beige with all of our white...) but a month and several weeks of Rick singing Kumbaya tocoaxing under-sink pipes to stop leaking, we finally have some more updates on our half bath!

Rick built that vanity with his own blood, sweat, and tears. He's my hero. And we also "built" the two lights for $4 total out of applesauce jars.

The mirror is the product of spray paint and a ridiculously cheap yard sale: it was $25 for that mirror AND another one just like it. It took me approximately 0.00009 seconds to fork over my cash, because most other mirrors I've seen for that price are plastic and made for dorm rooms. Here's what it looked like when I stumbled upon it in its dusty gold $12.50 glory:

Our little bathroom is all grown up and birdless. Looking at these pictures reminds me that I still need to remove that extra toilet paper roll holder from the back of the toilet, but I'll get to it eventually. Imperfections, embraced. :)

Like I said, I'll be sharing more specifics about the vanity and our DIY lights in posts next week. For now, I must go brainstorm a new 4th of July outfit since I've nixed the tape idea.

Wow, I have seen a lot of stripes on the walls and this one by far is my favorite! The subtle stripes are so refresing, love them. The vanity looks store bought great job! And the transformation on the mirror is awesome along with those cool lights. Great job!
