Once the bathroom was clear of the old sink and cabinet, I set to work painting. I wanted a gray color, but not the purple gray we painted the master bathroom. I went with a pretty dark gray this time and LOVE IT!
One of the things on my cut list was to have beadboard (or wainscoting) at the bottom. I planned out how that would look, and decided on a space in the middle for a more decorative look. I cut, primed and painted the board and molding.
I added the ceiling trim first. It was a simple 1″x3″ but I love the look!
Next came the beadboard. Fun times cutting around the plumbing!
First line of molding added.
Here is what the final trim looked like. I could have painted the wall white, but that is actually a thin backing board. I did that because I knew I wanted several hooks on that part, and there are not studs as often as I wanted hooks. I thought the board would give the hooks more support. Plus, it looks pretty nice!
