Bead It Part II

Our bathroom project is complete! Ripping out the old nasty tile and re-doing the walls was not in our budget, so I decided to bead board over it. I would like to say this is all DIY but bead boarding over tile is not for amateurs;  my favorite father son contracting team Gregg & Nick did the installation. In order to make it look like the room had always been this way they notched each board around the window perfectly, and there are no visible seams. We kept the old light fixture and window treatment, hung the new mirror, gave it a fresh coat of paint and voila! Our beautiful new bathroom is revealed. 

I am slightly obsessed with fixtures and appliances, weird yes, but I can't help myself. I got this Kohler Pinstripe faucet on eBay for a fraction of the $500 price tag because it was a floor model. 

In case you didn't see the before pictures, this is what the room used to look like. 

Sold the old vanity on Craigslist to help pay for the new sink.

  1. So happy to find your blog! I have 2 identical "McNasterson" bathrooms and have often wondered about adding beadboard over them. Beautiful!

  2. Hi, this is exactly what we've been dealing with!! But I wonder what you did with the shower? I assume that the shower tile was identical to the original bathroom tile. Did you just leave it the same? Love your mirror over the sink!


  3. Lovely bathroom finishes, and so nice, clean, neat, up to date and custom!

  4. What a fantastic idea.

  5. Hi Elizabeth! I just found your blog and am adoring it! The beadboard bathroom is BRILLIANT! We are rolling up our sleeves on a colonial in downtown Silver Spring, and I wondered if you wouldn't mind sharing information about the contracting team you like? I look forward to visiting your studio soon!
