Here is what the upstairs guest bath looked like when we moved in 3 years ago:
What is the ugly wallpaper obsession about?
Ted wanted to do this one by himself and get a feel for tiling on a smaller space
(and to warm him up for the larger rooms to be done in our house).
He bought 12×12 square tiles and using a tile saw cut them in half making them more rectangular
6 x 12s. He put up and painted wainscoting instead of using wall tiles (we still have a
ton of white subway tiles that will be used on a future project – they were free!).We repurposed the mirror from another room.
The pedestal sink saves a lot of space and works for this room much better.
Best part is that is was FREE.
Overall this project ran us around $100 for paint, the light fixture and the tile.
Much better, don’t you think?
