Bathroom Vanity Redo

Updated on April 2, 2013

It just seemed natural to redo the master bathroom vanity area after finishing the room next to it with the skylight. Thankfully it happened to be a much smaller space so removing the wall paper wasn't as time consuming. It took about eight hours to take off all the wall paper and glue. Only a a few rough spots remained so I patched and sanded those and was ready to paint.

Some of the wall paper came off in large sheets.

Paint Color Choices

The natural colors of sea shells were used to paint with.

  • Sandrift Tan - Glidden Light base Eggshell/Satin Interior Latex

  • Amber Stone - Dutch Boy Deepstone Base C

  • White Flat - Glidden Ceiling Paint Interior Latex

Painiting Progress

I couldn't wait to get started painting this area as I wanted to take it from looking so busy to a more relaxed feeling. It was time to make a big change with the tired old wall paper removed. Painting the walls solid colors opened up the space in no time presenting a soft and welcoming feel to the entire bathroom vanity area.

With such a huge variety of shell decor in stores these days it was easy to find some wall art. I selected a few pieces for the walls with shells in them.

I've been having fun swapping out different color towels too. Black, white and burgundy seem to work the best so far.
