My very first post on Craftster two years ago was our master bathroom renovation.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=351200  We had always intended to update our guest half bath 'some day'.  It actually made it onto my list of 50 projects for 2012.  My husband got curious about whether there was hardwood floor under the ugly linoleum tile squares so he peeled the corner of one up and there sure was.  We got excited and pulled all the remaining tiles up then were not able to get the sticky linoleum glue residue up despite our best efforts.  'Some day' came early this year. 



After doing some research and speaking to a few wallpaper suppliers, we decided to paint over the country floral wallpaper.  We used an oil based primer then followed with a neutral gray paint/primer combo.  We opted for crown molding and wainscoting.  The flooring is a laminate.   

Here's the before


And here's how it looked on our first day of renovation.  The entire process took us just 9 days(!)  Unlike our master bath renovation, we did this one entirely by ourselves.  Tomorrow is construction clean up day, it will be nice to have our house back to normal. 


The only thing left is to decorate it with all the crafty artwork I've accumulated through Craftster swapping.  You know, the fun stuff!

Your reno turned out fabulous!  I really like the choice of vanity, especially the dark counter with the white sink.  and the wainscotting too.    Obviously you two are a dynamic duo finishing up in 9 days....I have renos that are at least 5 year projects by now, so way to go Grin

Looks beautiful, MW! The blue on the walls is a great color, especially with the dark wood. Do happen to recall the name? Wainscoting is a big thing in bathrooms now. Smiley

Thanks so much, HSG!  It's a nice neutral Behr color called nautical grey.  We had it color matched for Valspar.  It's a hike to any paint place for us, we like one stop shopping.

Oh Wow! Your renovation has turned out to be very good. I really like your taste. It is simple and elegant. The bathroom vanity looks good. I like the brown you have used. You have done a really good job from turning it into a really nice bath. Well done and keep it up!

Wow, you guys have done an outstanding job in just 9 days- not everyone's cup of tea. I also liked the color scheme in the bathroom, elegant and cool. Great job!!!
