Installing Wood Planks on the Bathroom Walls

YAY!!! We are finished with the installation of wood planks on the bathroom walls! We started it just before Christmas and I am so happy it is finally done! Check out the first part of this post HERE for more detailed instructions on HOW we did it, but for now just enjoy the After photos!

Here is the BEFORE of one of the vanity areas

The tub & toilet area… and yes I know it’s a lot of doors! I wish they had used some pocket doors in this space…

The other vanity area… see the brass knobs & hinges on all of the doors too? Those I replaced a couple of months ago.

Here is the AFTER of Brie’s (the youngest) vanity. Her bedroom will be painted blue so the blue around her frame will coordinate with that when it gets painted… sometime next century maybe Winking smile

The mirror frame is painted Anderson Blue and is a Benjamin Moore color, I will write a how to post on the mirror framing next.

Other than replacing all of the brass doorknobs and vanity light shades, I reused all of the existing fixtures. I’ll replace the vanity knobs after I paint it… maybe…

This is a close up of the detail on the wall planks. It starts with horizontal pine planks, then a small chair rail, then vertical tongue and groove bead board, then crown molding… so worth it I think! The paint color is Sherwin Williams Velvet White, it is the same color used on all of the trim throughout the house.

This is Sierra’s side, the purple is “Elderberry Wine” by Benjamin Moore and is the same color as an accent wall in her bedroom (I will share that makeover with you soon).

We also changed out the globes on the light fixture in this room as well.

This is the tub & toilet area of the bathroom. The shower curtain I sewed for them a few years ago and since the colors still work it’s staying, plus I really love it.

I also replaced the original “boob” light for this more traditional looking light, it’s very big and I almost didn’t have enough clearance for the door to close… I completely adore it! I found it on line at Lamps Plus if you’re interested.

I also reinstalled their “spa” basket and added a framed print that we had in storage. I also reused the toilet paper holder we already had instead of reinstalling the roll holder on the wall. The girls prefer the stand holder because it holds extra rolls and is easy to change the rolls… I’m all about making it easier for them whenever I can!

The soaps are lavender and make the bathroom smell wonderful!

I think the Before and After shot really shows the HUGE improvement!

I hope you enjoyed this “little” bathroom makeover. While the installation part of the planks and trim were by no means hard, the amount of caulking, hole filling and painting was pretty time consuming. I think I’m going to take a little painting break!

I love the results of the bathroom makeover and I hope to never have to paint this area again!

Thanks as always for stopping by!

Until next time…

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
