Bathroom Re-do

After about 10 years I grew tired of looking at the same old blue wallpaper in our bathroom.  There is so much moisture that the seams had started to come unglued.

I needed a change so I decided to strip the walls. Little did I know that this was what I would find underneath…

UGH.

I thought about just re-papering but didn’t want to bother with the hassle knowing, that too, would need to be stripped again some day, so I decided to skim coat the walls. Luckily, they are small and the bottom half is wainscoting so it wasn’t too terrible of a job.

While searching the internet for ideas for the wall I found this lovely stencil from Royal Design Studio. I had planned on going with a dark wall color and lighter stencil color but everyone voted me down on that idea because they thought the bathroom was already too dark and small. So, I went with Swiss Coffee on the walls and a light gray for the stencil.

I got to work this afternoon stenciling the bathroom walls.
