Craftsman Style Wainscot

When I first purchased my house both bathrooms left much to be desired (see my website for before photos) paint alone would have been a huge improvement!   I originally painted the downstairs bathroom in Sherwin Williams Macadamea (a medium taupe color) after living with it for 3 and a half years I’ve not only grown tired of the color but bored with the whole look of the room, so I decided to repaint in a lighter brighter color and add some wainscot, since I put traditional wainscot in the living room and dining room and beadboard in the upstairs bathroom I wanted to do something different for this bathroom, that is how I decided to install craftsman style wainscot!

The last few days I have repainted the upper walls in Sherwin Williams Sea Salt I then cut some 1 x 4’s and 1 x 3’s to create the wainscot, from there I installed the wood and painted it in semi-gloss white.  I also put up a new shower rod and a new white waffle weave shower curtain.   I still have to paint the ceiling and vanity in white and attach a cap on the top rail of the wainscot.  I am thinking of building new drawer and door fronts in Shaker style for the vanity.   I plan on replacing the mirror I had in there before with a tilting mirror.  Updates will be made here on my blog as well as on my site.
