Half Bathroom Progress


Behind this door in the dining room is our teeny, tiny half bathroom on the first floor.

This is a closet under the stairs turned bathroom, so it is a very odd shape, but endearing – can a bathroom be endearing?

To the right is a closet

and a window

To the left is the toilet (I’ll spare you the full open toilet picture)


Now for the list of things that have been completed

  • Scrubbed the whole entire bathroom like you would not believe
  • Took down the wooden 1983 towel bar and soap tray
  • Took off all the plastic-y textured wall paper (post here) – this took months…literally
  • Painted the walls in Sherwin-Williams Hubbard Squash (this post)
  • Added an ORB (oil rubbed bronze) towel ring to the right of the sink (this post)
  • Added an ORB toilet paper holder to the left of the toilet (this post)
  • Changed out the silver handle on the toilet for a snazzy (splurge) ORB one (post here)
  • Created an ORB foaming soap pump for the sink (tutorial post here)
  • Painted the rusted grate on the floor by the sink a matte black color
  • Added some red candle holders and s’more smelling candles to the top of the sink (this post)
  • Switched out the lacy curtain for frost painted glass (post here)
  • Added three Ikea (hallelujah) vases and gerbera daisies to the windowsill (this post)
  • Repainted the handles on the closet from chrome to ORB (this post)
  • Added some hubbard squash accent paint to the closet (post here)


The new sink needs to be installed, the mirror will be coming down and replaced with one in a beautiful frame, a new light that has yet to be decided on…we’ll get there.
