Bathroom Revamp Using A Stencil

Mini Tour

When I first saw my apartment (before moving in), I knew that the bathroom overhaul would take priority over everything else. Because of its small size (and having to share it with someone), I knew the vein blue paint and awful lighting were going to drive me nuts. So with a lot of inspiration from this picture--combined with a post from Gregory and Abby, I got to work.

In order to open up the space and help it breathe a little, I knew the lighting had to go. The switch was easy with a little help from this post and my new IKEA lighting made the space feel instantly bright. Next up, picking out the perfect stencil from Royal Design Studio. It was a tough choice but I finally decided on this one from their Moroccan Collection. To bring the stencil to life, I chose The Isle of Capri from Behr paints and finished the space off with a teak bath mat and accessories. I'd still like to have a longer shower curtain and I'm on a mission to find one or two long, rectangular vintage framed artwork pieces to hang where I didn't stencil (above the sink and between the medicine cabinet and door frame). You can also view the "Before" pics of the bathroom on the 3rd row.
