As you may remember, I am transforming and renovating an outdated and dysfunctional bathroom into a sophisticated, functional, and inviting guest bath for my discerning client, Rebekah.
Sooooo…..welcome to Week 5!
1. Bathtub Wood Panel. I haven’t really talked about this add-on project, but it’s a sensational idea and turned out fabulously! The circa 1940s style tub was looking a bit too…..flashy? dated? Okay, ugly for the likes of this soon-to-be pretty new bathroom!
3. Wallpaper installation. The bathroom area is tiny! The Thibaut “Bahia” wallpaper went up very quickly. And completely transformed the look of the room almost instantaneously! Seriously though, don’t you agree? The wallpaper has a beige ground with a darker brown metallic starburst. The metallic starburst color replicates the metallic browns in the specialty tile in the tub/shower area.
4. Electrical. You may recall that the previous bathroom only had one switch, which turned on the lights. There wasn’t a switch to the exhaust fan (whaaa? Then, how did it work? It didn’t). There wasn’t even an outlet for a guest to plug in her hairdryer! (Say it ain’t so Barclay!). I KNOW!!
