Bathroom Makeover Week 1- Wallpaper and Inspiration

Hello Friends, I am so happy you are here!

I am super excited to be joining this group of talented ladies to participate in the Primp and Pamper Bathroom Refresh.

Primp and Pamper Bathroom Refresh

We will be posting our progress on our bathroom makeovers every Tuesday during the month of March with a big reveal on the 27th.

I need to give a huge shout out to my good friend Jewel from Jeweled Interiors for hosting this event and for giving me the kick in the pants I needed to finally get this room done. Thank you Jewel!!!

So let's get right to it.

The Before Pictures:

Our main floor powder room looks pretty much the same way it did when we moved in three years ago.

I love the high ceilings and the big bright window, but everything else is pretty boring for this color loving girl.

Inspiration:

I am completely smitten with wallpaper and have been wanting to wallpaper this bathroom since the day we moved in. The reason it has taken me so long is because I wanted to actually design the wallpaper myself. I am a surface pattern designer and I am thrilled to announce that I will be using one of my very own patterns for my new powder room! Eeeeeeeeek!

I'll be sharing more about the wallpaper and how I designed it next week, but until then here are a few bathrooms that I have been swooning over.

Gorgeous, right? I love the look of a big bold floral wallpaper in a small bathroom space.

I will be wallpapering the top half of the bathroom walls and covering the bottom half with board and batten similar to the picture below.

Even though I am not too handy with the tools I am hoping to tackle this board and batten myself. I have been watching Youtube videos and reading lots of tutorials so keep your fingers crossed that I can pull this off. Ha!

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you stop by next Tuesday to see the wallpaper and learn about the process I used designing it.
