A Striped Half Bath Makeover

I'm back today with another house update. Slowly things are coming together, and we're taking our time. As a result I'm really loving how these spaces are coming together, even if this is the bathroom.

Today I'm going to show you how we made over our half bath room. Located just off the kitchen, it's the last stop before the garage. I wanted to do something fun, it's such a small space and I kinda think bathrooms get overlooked at times so I wanted to make it something fun since this is the bathroom our guests use when they come over.

Here's a quick before:

Our home was painted a nice neutral color so we decided to do thick horizontal stripes all over the bathroom. We started by taping our stripes off at 12 inches apart, using Frog Tape. That's my fave brand of tape to use.

Then we started painting. We used Olympic's "Snow" and painted stripes. I love Olympic paint because it's low VOC and I love that especially with two little ones in the house I don't have to worry about harsh fumes and chemicals.

When we finally ripped all the tape off it was pretty fun,

Then I started to decorate, we added some shelves above the toilet. Picked up some pretty yellow towels, and shopped the house for the rest of the stuff to add, here's the after.

I really loved how it all turned out, and it makes me so happy every time I walk into the bathroom. I still want to add a new light fixture but for now I'm really happy with it. Have you painted any bold stripes in any of your rooms lately? If not, you should they are so fun!
