Bathroom makeover

24 Jun

I want to apologize for being MIA last week with posts. I have been working diligently on our upstairs bathroom makeover. I finally finished last night and I want to show you all what I did. This post is probably going to be picture heavy so I apologize.

This is the before: Plaid wallpaper?!?!

After almost 4 days of removing the wallpaper which in some spots it didn’t want to come off, finally it was all gone well almost. Behind the mirror was some extremely old wallpaper and well it wasn’t coming off so I just left it. no one was going to see it anyways once the mirror was back up. I used DIF gel wallpaper remover the kind in the spay bottle. it says let sit 20-30 minutes which is too long after that long of time it starts to dry. I waited about 5-6 min as its easier to remove when wet. I know some people say use windex the one with ammonia, but I didn’t remember to try that till I was almost done.

Now I was ready to paint. this took about 3 hours. I had to use two coats, one was fine but was too bright, the second coat darkened it up and was the perfect shade. I used Behr Sea Foam Spray (Home Depot)

These photos above (I made) I put on the middle of the mirror. I wanted to have them on the counter top but i didn’t like how it looked. So I decided to attach them to the mirror using Command Picture frame damage free hanging stripes.
