Our style in this house has definitely skewed towards the masculine side of the decorating spectrum and the guest bathroom is no exception. As with every room in this house, the guest bath was white, white, white, and standard 90’s.
Try to control your excitement.
I wanted to soften up the look of the room with a shower curtain, so we removed the glass shower doors.
Removing the shower doors was a lot easier than I anticipated. It was just a matter of taking the doors off, unscrewing the frame, and then scraping off the residual caulk.
I decided to paint the walls the same color that I used in the great room–Sherwin Williams “Grizzle Gray” #7068 in a flat finish. I know many people choose to use a paint with a sheen for kitchens and bathrooms, however, I love flat paint on all walls. It hides imperfections and softens the look of textured surfaces.
I had originally intended to paint the wood on the sink cabinet, but after getting the dark gray paint on the walls, the wood appeared richer in color, so I kept it as is. After hanging the shower curtain, putting down a rug, changing out the light fixture, and adding decorative elements, we have this:
I picked up the shower curtain at Marshall’s, the shower hooks from Target, and the rug from T.J. Maxx. The mirror, plate, and framed pictures are all from various antique and thrift stores.
It’s hard to get good photos of this room since it is small.
Here are some close up shots:
This shelf is one of my favorite thrift store finds to date. It’s old and rustic and perfect for the space.
Like most of our projects, everything was done inexpensively. I believe that the grand total for this room came in under $200.
