Are you ready for a dramatic wallpaper bathroom makeover?
Here’s the before and what we were working with. Believe me it’s an improvement from the bright red walls we found here when we first moved in. Since then our downstairs half bath had only been given a coat of paint. I was content with it for several year, but it was time for a change.
Half Bathroom Before
When Photowall offered to gift me their beautiful wallpaper to try out I decided to try something out of my comfort zone. Photowall has so many stunning design, mural and wall art you will be amazed. There’s something for everyone and every style!
Our half bath had been on my list of projects for at least a year. Ever since I found a handsome bathroom vanity for half off at Lowes, I knew a dramatic wallpaper bathroom makeover was coming. Even though it was a complete makeover I still utilized the design concept of reusing. The light fixture and mirror in our half bath stayed. I didn’t even spray paint it can you believe it?! The tile also stayed put because It was a in great shape and I love the style. Jeremy and I put it in about eight years ago, but when you choose a classic tile you can be set for a couple of decades.
Trying Out the Dramatic
I chose their Archipelago wallpaper. It’s almost black with loads of texture and warm colors throughout displaying artistic botanicals. It’s a sophisticated print on a large scale. Photowall sends you everything you need to get the job of wallpapering done. Wallpapering in a small space is not an easy task, but the good news is because it’s small square footage, you get the job done faster. The long roles, which are numbered so you can’t mess the order up, allow you to cover a large amount of space at one time and make for less trips up and down on your ladder.
Style In the Details
Three details really make this bathroom sing. Painting the molding black, creating a gallery wall and adding a fixtures in brass.
Loved the shape of the cabinet hardware, so instead of buying new knobs to match the gold faucet I spray painted the existing ones to match with this spray paint HERE. First I roughed up the hardware with fine grit sand paper to help insure the paint would stick, and thankfully it has. I used this spray paint HERE and it was a perfect match. Be ready for several Christmas projects to come where I’ll use this gorgeous color! I had found some beautiful vintage art with gold frames so I also used the same spray paint on a few of the thrifted mirrors for the walls. A gallery wall in a half bathroom was just the added touch of drama I was looking for.
I love this dramatic wallpaper bathroom makeover! If you’re thinking of trying a design style or color you’ve never tried before, go for it. Every time I open the door to this room I’m enveloped by the dark tones and forest like feel, it’s magical.
