Guest Bathroom Reveal

The guest bathroom reveal is here! I’ve been working on this room for about 5 weeks and I’m so glad it finally reached the finish line. I haven’t posted a room reveal since my living room reveal last year, and with being stuck at home during covid quarantine, this little bathroom seemed like the perfect project.

Ever heard of the term “Project Creep”? It’s when you start one small project, and then before you know it, you’ve torn apart the whole room and you find yourself in the middle of a big renovation that you had no original plans for… sound familiar? This little bathroom originally just needed a ceiling touch-up. When we moved in to the house 2 years ago, there were popcorn ceilings in every room. My husband scrapped, remudded, sanded, and painted all the ceilings, but because of the humidity in the bathrooms, the ceilings were in need of further repair. So Jason fixed the ceiling and I repainted them, and soon after the project creep began!

We started with repairing the holes in the walls and around the shower. Then painted the ceiling and the top half of the walls with Behr Ultra White. Then we replaced the baseboards and installed board and batten trim around the bottom half of the walls. After caulking, the trim was painted with Behr Silver Celedon and the vanity was painted with Behr Starless Night.

Next I painted the linoleum floors using this inspiration from Angela Rose Home. I cleaned the floors with a degreaser and rolled on 2 coats of the base paint, Rustoleum Chalk Paint in White Linen. Then I used a 1/4 inch paint tape and taped off my design. I lightly brushed the base paint over all the tape to create a seal so that none of the second color paint would seep under.

I painted my design using Rustoleum Chalk Paint in Charcoal (2 coats), before peeling up the tape. After touching up some areas and cleaning up any uneven lines, I put 4 coats of Minwax Polycrylic clear coat over top (lightly sanding in between coats).

Lastly I decorated! The fun part but also the “hurry up and wait” part since I ordered most of it on amazon. Links to everything are at the bottom of the post!
