Today I finished the plank wall in the half bath, installed a new light and connected the new ceiling light. I really love how it turned out so far.
Here are a few pictures of the starting point for this room:
Then I ripped holes in the wall and ceiling to run the new lighting. Remember that fun mess?
I removed the old mirror and vanity...Yes, the builder didn't build that wall straight. So, what did they do to make the original vanity flush to the wall? Cut a hole for it. I found that a few years ago when I changed the vanity and luckily, the new one covered their mess.
Then, I began running rows of the planking. I used the individual unpainted pieces this time and I LOVE THEM!!! I totally ditched my original plan for the ceiling to use the plank looking paneling like I did in the laundry room/pantry when I saw how amazing this wall looked when it was finished.
Look at the wall now. No more holes. Now you see them, now you don't.
And here is that new barn light I found at Lowe's for $25. What a steal.
And here is a picture of both new lights and they work.
Remember the popcorn ceiling?
It will soon be a memory. Now I just need to buy a couple more packs of the planks to finish the ceiling this week and trim it out.
I'll be finishing up the ceiling, prepping and priming the wood this week. Then working on the new vanity I'm building and bookshelf for the corner.
Have a great week! I'll be posting the Kreg winner on Tuesday and announcing a new giveaway at the end of the week.
