Black and White Striped Bathroom

I've been meaning to do a full post on my half bathroom for a while now.  Small bathrooms are absolutely the hardest rooms to photograph which is why I've been putting this post off, but I finally just decided to jump right in and go for it.

It's always best to start with a before picture, because then you can really appreciate the after.  This bathroom felt small, dark, and orange.  It was time for a change.


I'm loving black and white right now and decided to go bold with some horizontal stripes.













I would eventually love to add a fabric skirt to the bottom of the pedestal sink, but for now I'll leave it as is.

Here's a list of sources for the room:
Mirror: Thrifted, before and after here
Floating Frames: Michaels
Framed Shell Art Prints: cutout from this book
Framed 3D shell art: DIY found here
White Shelf: Ikea (brackets spraypainted brass)
Metal Seltzer bottle: purchased on clearance a few years ago at Tuesday Morning
Soap Dish: thrifted vintage glass
Soap Dispenser: Target
Switchplate covers: DIY found here
Mermaid Towel Hook: Hobby Lobby  (spraypainted gold)

You can't go wrong with B & W-and what a great job you did, it can't be easy getting those lines crisp. I really love the extra touches like the towel hook and outlet cover.

I don't even know where to start.
Of course I love black and white and horizontal stripes. And I know I've told you once already how much I love that gold mermaid!
The mirror color is right down my alley and I love the gold brackets on the floating shelf!
Really, really beautiful!

I love the black and white stripes. I never get tired of them. It was really inspired to paint the Ikea shelf brackets brass! I haven't seen that done before and it was really great looking.

I love...this bathroom. I am so loving black and white as well right now and this bathroom hits it out of the park! Did you paint those stripes or did you use some sort of wallpaper material? I am trying to come up with solutions for a ugly orange half bathroom as well :) Also, what is your favorite gold spray paint?

Mrs. DeVore said...

Thank you! I just taped off the stripes using painters tape and a laser level. And my favorite gold spraypaint is Rustoleum Gold Metallic, it's the one with the shiny lid.

Bethany DeVore said...

How wide are the stripes and which paint colour are the white stripes?

Bethany DeVore said...

The stripes are 12 inches wide and I actually just used some white paint that I had on hand. I'm not sure of the exact color.

Bethany DeVore said...

Is the mermaid spray painted with the same color that is on the shelves?
