Painting

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!
