Here’s the almost finished bathroom. Whoever put the linoleum in did not replace the quarter round so I’ll be doing that. And I really want to paint the white walls. They look fine in the photo but in real life the previous owners just slapped a thin coat of white paint over the old white paint before selling the house. Any color ideas? I’m thinking a cream/taupe color with white trim and white ceiling.
Our bathroom has a nautical theme to it. Carl and I grew up on the beach and love all things “beachy”. My sister made this hanging quilt for my dad years ago. When he passed away she gave it to me. It fits perfectly in our bathroom. This week I finally got a real rod for it.
Just in case you want to make a shelving unit, I took pictures to share.
I just used inexpensive pine board. I used 1X12’s. We cut four lengths 23″ and two lengths 36″. We nailed them together using finishing nails. It’s a bit wobbly at this stage but that’s ok.
Measure the outside of your unit and cut a piece of thin plywood that is will fit. This is where it’s handy to have someone who knows how to square up a box. You need to use a speed square and maybe even some clamps. Nail the back on using finishing nails.
The top didn’t look very nice….
So we cut another piece of the thin plywood for the top and nailed it on.
I used paneling moulding to trim it up. The boys cut mitered edges for the top front and then just flat ends for the rest. For nailing this on, I drilled tiny pilot holes after splitting the wood a little.
The shelf shown here is stationary and I just nailed it in from the sides.
I used wood filler and filled all the holes and gaps. Then painted it with a primer.
I made the middle shelf adjustable by drilling two holes on each side and using shelf holders to hold it up. I did this because this piece of wood was cut just a little smaller than the others and the gaps would have been too big.
I finished it off by painting it “Tranquility” by Valspar. I only used one sample can that I had gotten free from Lowes.
Any ideas on paint colors that will look nice with the yellow pine paneling?
