Paint and Stencils Can Makeover An Old Bathroom
Good morning, my DIY bathroom renovators! Guests are coming in just a couple of weeks and we bet that guest bathroom needs a bit of a refresher. Renovating a bathroom is not always an option because it can be pricey and time consuming. When you need a quick refresher on a limited budget, Cutting Edge Stencils recommends stenciling. Paint, stencil patterns, and a few carefully chosen decor accessories can totally transform the look of a dull space. Today we have a bathroom makeover that uses one of our nautical stencils, the Perfect Catch Allover. Let’s take a look!
We’d like to welcome Stephanie, the creative DIYer behind the blog Simply Swider. Stephanie has been giving her fixer-up of a home a makeover with one DIY project at a time. Her most recent project was her half bathroom which she admits was in desperate need of a makeover. Here’s what her bathroom looked like before.
Stephanie said, “I want to create a bathroom that is inspired by old ships but isn’t cheesy. I plan to use wood and brass elements mixed with a grassy green and metallic gold to keep the room feeling authentic yet modern.” With her inspiration in mind, Stephanie put together a mood board to help pull her decor ideas together. Here was her plan:
First up, painting the walls. She painted the walls an off-white. Then she chose to use our Perfect Catch Allover stencil pattern to enhance her nautical theme. She used blue painter’s tape to help hold the stencil in place and then painted the rope pattern in a metallic gold using a dense foam roller.
Once the nautical rope pattern was painted on the wall, Stephanie painted the vanity boxwood green, added two copper lights, and framed the mirror with reclaimed wood. Ready to see how it all turned out?
Gorgeous, isn’t it? Stephanie comments, “I know a green vanity isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I love having a fun space that will definitely surprise guests.”
And here’s a close-up of the stencil work and the copper lighting.
