When I used “Small” in this title, I meant…it’s a small bathroom.
And it’s a small remodel.
But, none the less, it looks totally different, and that’s what I was going for.
And it was cheap. Like only $40.00.
Here’s the before…
This plaid wallpaper was not horrible. In fact, I thought it was pretty cute and fit in quite well with our house out here in the boonies.
But, it was just a tad busy for me. Of our three bathrooms, this was the only one with wallpaper, and man, I was ready to take it down.
Until we actually started taking it down.
Then, I was ready to quit. Good gosh, that stuff is a pain in the hiney to remove.
Thankfully, once again, Wranglers swoops in and takes over.
He has way more “staying power” than me.
I found spraying a mixture of vinegar and water on the wallpaper glue or backing, or whatever that stuff is, worked really well.
Okay, actually he did most of it, but from where I was standing, I could tell it really worked.
Without the vinegar mixture, it would only come off in tiny little bits.
I have ZERO patience for this kind of stuff-I am working on that now. You know, with Resolutions and stuff.
So now, for the big reveal….
My lighting wasn’t all that great, but the color is kind of greenish brownish-I really don’t know what it is, but I like it. It’s a calming color. And I can use all the calming I can get.
At a later date, we plan to change out the counter top, and the tile. For now, we are pleased with this cheap and effective remodel.
Do you have any projects you are working on, or planning?
