The half bath has turned into one of my favorite little spots in the home. Originally, we were going to leave this pretty much as-is, but we last minute decided it needed some sprucing. We were able to do some really budget friendly updates that completely rejuvinated the space.
Here's a before of what it looked like when we bought the home...
Nothing bad about it, but also, nothing special either! I actually really love the original tile and felt like it would have been a crime to get rid of it. It just needed a little spice!!
Here's a list of the updates I wanted to do:
- New Light
- New Toilet
- New Vanity
- New Hardware (bathroom faucet, towel & toilet hanger)
I searched for HOURS for both the wallpaper and the vanity. Do you know how hard it is to find an 18" vanity that looks semi-decent?! Nearly impossible!!!
I ended up finding this vanity and the price was in the budget enough where I was able to replace the faucet with this beauty and change the knob out. Honestly, the faucet was more than the vanity :/ but I feel like that's what it really needed to take it to the next level.
Side note - I am crushing hard on polished nickel right now. Can't believe I am even saying this, but I think I might do the next houses kitchen entirely in polished nickel. From a die hard gold/brass fan, that is a very large statement ;).
And then the wallpaper...THE WALLPAPER! Loveeeee. Back in March, I went through all different wallpaper samples trying to find the perfect one. I had everyone vote on Instagram stories between these three...
I really liked all of these, but ended up going with the top one. Due to the house being almost one hundred years old, the walls have a little too much texture to them. I thought the business of the wallpaper would do an amazing job hiding the texture!
I got the wallpaper from a new company called Spoonflower. I am really impressed with the quality and would definitely recommend. They have all different textures, but I went with the non-pasted traditional pebble.
Here's the final product!
