Before & After: Mandy's Simple and Refreshing Bathroom Makeover

Pin it button big

Mandy and her husband had been living in a rental duplex that was built in the 1920s for two months, faced with the previous owners' "strange paint taste." Though they tackled many of the other home's spaces, the bathroom had been in the back of their minds, not quite sure what color to choose.

Mandy and her husband didn't do much to this rental bathroom to change the look (and they wish their landlords would do something about the bathroom tile floor!) but the simple things they did do — add a bold paint color and a refresh the white surfaces — made a big impact on this small space.

From Mandy:

I found some awesome brass accessories, and realized how gorgeous they look with forest green. So, I painted the bathroom a gorgeous emerald/forest green, refreshed the white trim (which was a dingy off-white), patched the crumbling plaster walls, filled holes, sprayed on window frosting paint, and voila! A fresh new bathroom with a dramatic color that I absolutely love. It even seems to make that linoleum a little more bearable.

Thank you Mandy!
