Bathroom remodel

My husband and I love our house, but what fun is owning a house if you cant put your own touches on the house and make it home. When we bought the house it had lots of things updated already, beautiful hardwood floors, new counter tops,and the down stairs was nicely painted. But we wanted to do some other simple updates on our own. Why you may ask..well 1. Because its our house and we can  :) and 2. for the experience and knowing that we can do it. Our powder room down stairs seemed like a great place to do a small yet dramatic change.

For a good oh 3-4 months we had about 4 paint chips on the wall to decide on what yellow we wanted. In the next picture you can see the yellow we painted the upper half of the walls and below is the brown tan color it already was. Can you see what the next step after painting was?

Thats right other than some yellow paint our bug change was some wainscoting on the walls!

Now with this what did we learn?? Paint the paneling before installing!! it took many coats and air bubble/seaming filling but we love it.
Our vanity is actually a wine rack turned vanity from homegoods! The sink was bought on overstock which was truly the best deal we could find on a vessel sink and faucet. 


And now all we need is some art for the walls!!
