Master Bathroom makeover

The pale blue with lots of brass before bathroom.

We do not have many pictures of this room because after a year of living here we still had not decorated it. Everything was brass and baby blue. But we kept the vanity but took out the brass faucets, brass light fixture and builders mirror.

We painted the room teal. Also ungraded the doors and put on chrome light plates.

This is the start of my English theme showing up in the room.

The before half wall for towels
Now the towel wall with his and her pictures of each of us in a phone booth in London.

The shower stall was plastic and we had it ripped out and tiled along with the floor.
All the brass is gone and this added to the room we had in the shower stall.
Bath tub area before.
I added picture of some of the things we saw while in England. Changed the faucet to chrome and built a faux build it tub front to the tub.

The shelves have sand from Wales, Ireland, rocks from the shores of the English Channel in Dover, and from The English Channel on the Calais France side.

I found this great art work of the map in London and a Big Ben wire statue to fit in nice in this area.
Subway art of all the places we went to in England.
Then we had to and a bit of vinyl to make the space more us. So we did a 4 ft Tower Bridge.

Master Bedroom Make Over

This is our bedroom (before). We changed out the chandelier when we moved in but we love the painted ceiling and the wall color. But now we want some wall molding done in this area.

We picked a pattern to try using 4ft long by 1.5 inch wide wood. It is in the molding area at Home Depot. We cut the wood into 7, 10, and 13 inch pieces.
Here is the design we wanted. So we could make adjustment we stared in the center of the wall and us one headless nail to nail in each piece of wood. It was easy to pull off and try again if we were off measuring wise.

In this picture you can see how it is a square box of 10wide 13 tall with 7 inch pieces on all sides.
Then we added just a flat 3.5 wide 4 ft long pieces of wood also in the molding department. After everything is in place then take a nail gun and nail all the wood to the wall.
Then really months later we got around to painting it. One coat of primer and 3 coats of white paint. Then we realized that w…
