This washroom used to remind me of that children’s rhyme, in a dark, dark house, there was a dark, dark room - with no windows, tucked away in a corner on our main floor, it felt dark and small. It was also never the right shade of purple when we first painted it years ago, and it kind of got forgotten over time. Well, we finally gave it a fresh new look! it feels so much bigger, brighter and warmer. Best part, we did it for well under $200!
Here's the before and after:
All it took was some paint, a new light fixture and some updated décor. We are very happy with the results.

There are lots of different textures and finishes that can be done with wainscot; we went with classic bead board found here.

Updating Old Hardware
A great way to give old hardware a new look is to spray paint it. Be sure to choose a spray paint that sticks to metal surfaces.
