tiny!! i have no idea how photographers take pictures in bathrooms....it's impossible. but you get the idea. before my bathroom was just a painted box. there wasn't anything wrong w/ it....it just wasn't me. so over thanksgiving, i convinced my dad to stay a week and help make my bathroom pretty. now, i can officially say "it's me". we added wainscoting and that made a huge difference. it made the bathroom feel taller and brighter. it was a quick, inexpensive way to get a big impact...dad had the wood up in about 2 hours....then it was just painting (3 coats of white) that made it official. the next step was wallpapering. dad has wallpapered numerous times so i was just the assistant. it's kind of fussy work but wallpapering is one of my favorite things to add to a space! and b/c we used the wainscoting, it cut down on how much wallpaper i actually needed. the wainscoting was $115 for all the materials and then it was just the cost of the wallpaper....we used about 3 single rolls. the wallpaper is quadrille/china seas java java in navy on white. and i love her. thanks for y'alls sweet comments and a huge thanks to my dad for being the best handyman a girl could have!!
