Title: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on September 10, 2014 04:40:18 PM


Tomorrow I plan to begin renovating our downstairs half bathroom; my decorating scheme is "Wunderkammer" or "Cabinet of Curiosities."  This is the bathroom we use most frequently and also the one which visitors use, so I'd like it to be interesting, if not fascinating.  :)  Currently it is quite bleak.  White walls, dark brown trim.



The room is dominated by this old Disneyland poster that my husband inherited from a friend.  We hate Monsanto, so we want to get rid of it.  There's also a huge bulletin board, which is kind of weird to have in a bathroom...  :P



The floor is especially sad, as I used the wrong kind of vinyl floor tile and it is all coming up:



The light fixture is also pretty tragic.  Seems like there ought to be something else on that wall...We purchased the house in a rudimentary form which included only the cheapest fixtures.  Now that we actually own the house, I'd like to fix it up some by replacing with better quality fixtures and decorating it a bit.



I will be updating this thread with my plan and progress.

Any ideas, advice, or links to interesting spaces would be greatly appreciated!   :)

Floor sucks. But you have good bare bones for this project. And floor always comes last in the project...so you can screw up the old one and not worry about it, in the process of the other parts.

I don't mind the lighting. But I am a clown. Reminds me of a dressing room.  ;D Maybe matte paint the outer metal parts of it? I like to use the stove black paint. Stuff tissue in the bulb holes. You could even splatter spritz it, so the brass still shows a bit. As in go in the lawn, spray in the air, and catch it  ;D

Bulletin board in the bath? Not so weird. But maybe if you wish, relocate it to the inside of a closet door? Depending on what you keep there on the board. Not too personal? Then ehhh. who cares? Just give it a fancy border, and turn it into artwork.  :D

Poster should go. I am glad you both agree there.

You both have certainly been busy. I know what it is to renovate a home. Best of luck for your additional travels.

Took everything off the walls and took up most of the remaining tile.  The next step is to buy and install a window!


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on September 26, 2014 04:45:34 PM
Bought the window, now to cut a hole in the wall!   :)

Not sure what you're planning for the walls, but check out this wallpaper idea (http://www.countryliving.com/homes/house-tours/donna-and-paul-frank-new-york-farmhouse#slide-9). That would give people something to look at for sure!

Ooh, and another one (http://honestlywtf.com/home/powder-room-pow/).

Okay, now I'm lost on Pinterest again...

I can't wait to see how you transform this space, Ludi! I just know I am going to have bathroom envy :)


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on September 28, 2014 06:04:02 PM
Thank you for the inspiration and encouragement!  I hope to get up the courage to start the hole in the wall this week...  :o

Digging that wallpaper!!  Wow!

Ludi, with your stunning embroidery skills, I'm picturing "taxidermy" of the most curious kinds.... lots of stumpwork and wire armature.  Your "FeeJee Mermaid" comes to mind.  ;)


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on October 01, 2014 11:49:35 AM
Thanks, bunny!  I think the room will also be inhabited by many pieces from other Craftsters which fit this theme.  :)

Slow incremental progress.  Next I will be framing the window opening.

Window - framed:

Post by: craftADDchick on October 27, 2014 09:58:45 AM
Neat! Are you going to make it an actual window to the outside, or just a display window?


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on October 27, 2014 11:13:40 AM
This will be an actual window.  The next step is to cut a hole in the siding, but I'm going to ask my husband to do that...



Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: craftADDchick on October 27, 2014 11:34:07 AM
I'd be a bit terrified of cutting a hole in the side of the house, too. :)

Ta da!  Hole in wall!

Nice window Ludi ;D

I thought I had posted an idea of what I would do, but it's not there, so I must have not remembered to post it...yeah ME!  I would probably cut out the drywall on the inside walls of the house between studs(the outside walls probably need the insulation to stay there..)  especial any where there was not too much wiring and make shelves between the studs.  I would probably just paint all the rough wood as I kind of like that look, but you could mud and tape it all up to look smoother too.  You would have more shelf space to store little things then.  You could also just do it in a few places and have little curio cut outs.  You could even make/buy/find glass or acrylic doors to keep the curio space dust free....I'm excited to see what you come up with ;D


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: craftADDchick on November 01, 2014 12:25:49 PM
Whoo-hoo! A window! Well, almost a window :)

Removal of the ugly medicine cabinet.  This niche will later contain a shadowbox or other display space, as you suggest, suereal.  :)

What a great idea for turning "unusable" space into something more! Can't wait to see what you put in there :)

Post by: cmarion3 on November 02, 2014 10:16:51 AM
We have a niche where a former medicine cabinet lived in our bathroom. Previous owner must have done it. She put glass shelves in and since it is next to our sinks and counter, works very well, so finish that off and show off your stuff.

The medicine cabinet was in the basement, I refinished that into a craft paint cabinet in my craft room.

I don't mind mudding and taping so much...it's the sanding that I hate.

Post by: Ludi on November 09, 2014 11:38:46 AM
Sanding isn't too bad if you have the right sanding block.

Sanded and mudded again:



I think I have one more episode of sanding and mudding, and then sanding again, and I'll be ready for paint!   :D

Post by: Ludi on November 10, 2014 04:40:34 AM
Thank you!  I'm a pretty decent rough carpenter, and I'm used to working with plaster from my profession of making stuff.  I'm not that confident about painting walls, though, so that will be the hard part for me.  Fortunately in this space they don't have to be flawless, as I want to achieve the look of old plaster.  :)



Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on November 10, 2014 10:44:32 AM
Plastered!   :D





Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: rockingbearranch on November 10, 2014 10:53:17 AM
I redo antique houses. You could roller it but it will look like painted drywall. The easiest method would be to rag the paint on by hand with a very clean old tshirt with all the seams cut off. If you did real plaster I'd do the Italian method but its much more work and who knows where you could get the stuff to do it in this age of modern convenience.


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on November 10, 2014 01:33:33 PM
Thank you for the t-shirt suggestion!  I was planning to rag the paint on, but wasn't sure what the best fabric would be.  :)

Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on December 14, 2014 10:32:12 AM
More very gradual incremental progress; sanded and primered walls and ceiling, old light fixture removed and wiring moved for new fixture.  Now need to patch the hole and finish touching up the walls, then ready for paint - at last!  I'm really hoping to start painting this week...





Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project

Thank you!  I wish it would go faster!

I've started "aging" the walls, but I have far to go before it looks like I want it to.  This is just two colors:





Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project

What technique are you using for the paint, Ludi? It's looking neat so far!


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on December 22, 2014 01:43:42 PM
Thanks! It's being a fun job.  I'm pouncing the paint on with pieces of old sweatpants.  :)

Here I've gone over with a third color to blend:



I'll probably go in with another coat of the base color to unify the whole thing, leaving some areas like the corners darker.

Thank you!  I have to wait until after Christmas to work on it more, since I don't want the house to be too painty-smelling for the holidays...  :P  But I'm so excited about the progress, and hope I can finish the entire project in the next month or two.  I'm so slow!  ::)

I'm starting to put in the Curiosities, so I think I'll refrain from posting more pics until I get most of the things in, and the finishing bits of trim and floor paint.  There are also a few small crafts I need to do as accessories, but the basic renovation will be done by the end of this month, and I plan to post pics on the 30th.

I'm having way too much fun with this project.   :D

Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on April 26, 2015 05:12:14 PM
The room is mostly decorated with swap crafts, with a few things made by me and some collectibles.  But mostly tons and tons of Craftster crafts!  I was embarrassed to realize I had forgotten who had made some of the things, so I went back and looked them all up and made a list. 

Still have a little trim to do, floor paint, and touch-ups...endless touch-ups....



Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Jinjeet Phoenix on April 26, 2015 11:20:16 PM
That clinches it! I have to travel and I'm dragging along my laptop. I'm not about to miss out on the "grand" opening! lol. Good luck.

Next project - the kitchen (but it won't be as ambitious, just "normal" mostly, I think)....


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: stillatthetop on April 28, 2015 09:37:34 PM
Whoo, hoo. Two more days.

Skip, skip, skip to my loo {sing along!}  ;D

I can't wait to see how all your collective craftster/craftsy goodness looks together. With the neutral color pallet you chose, everything else should POP! And it seems that matching your towels will be fairly easy.

Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project
Post by: Ludi on April 29, 2015 06:22:49 PM
Definitely not going to be completely done by tomorrow, but there's enough stuff up to be really impressive, I think.  Craftsters have made for me the greatest things!  I love seeing them all in one place like this, so fun!  I've convinced my husband to try to take good pics for me tomorrow after I put the cabinet doors on and do a couple other things.  But some trim and detailing will not have been done...


Title: Re: Half Bath to Wunderkammer project

Your bathroom is like an art museum for the "Who's Who" of Craftster!  :o

I love Craftster so much I've devoted an entire (tiny) room to it - but I have Craftster crafts elsewhere in my house as well....  :D

Very lovely. Not quite what I expected. You have so much stuff!!! It looks really neat like that. And it looks like you will still have room for more to add in some spots. And you still have more around your house???

Downfall...it will take your guests forever in the bathroom...looking at everything. Maybe you will want to install a timer on the lighting fixture  ;D Congratulations. I know you must be tickled to death.

I love it! It's a perfect way to showcase a whole bunch of amazing items! And, just think of the conversations it will start... "I was in the bathroom and I noticed..."

Great job, Ludi!
