I finished up our guest bathroom with a project that is a heck of a lot easier than building the floating vanity, painting the floors, installing the mirror, and certainly tiling the walls – it is framed marbled paper.
You know how I love framing random things instead of paying for real art, like this fabric art or this geometric art. The art for this room was no exception. There is the cutest little paper shop a block from my office and I love to pop in and check out the latest decorative paper finds. I was struggling with the art for this room because I wanted something sort of curvy to mimic the round penny tiles and rug, to bring in the turquoise tones from the adjoining guest bedroom, and also to add some color into an otherwise monochromatic space. The paper shop was so inspirational! Then I came across another amazing paper goods shop that happened to have a wall display of decorative paper. Maybe you saw me post it on Instagram a ways back:
Love all that color. One paper in particular caught my eye (check the bottom right). It is marbled paper, that has turquoise, raspberry, apricot, black, gray, and more.
I got myself a sheet and used it for two separate pictures in the guest bathroom. One is a large picture (with an Ikea frame).
The other is a smaller version of the same thing (also with an Ikea frame), using leftover scraps of that same sheet of paper.
So easy. So fun. And a great way to end this bathroom project.
Because this is my last guest bathroom post for now (dude, I’ve still got a shower rod to install), let’s do a little flashback of the before and after of this room.
Pink: I don’t miss you at all. Gray and white: I love you.
It is strange to think that weeks (fine, I’m sure it was months) of hard work were whittled down to just a handful of posts. Thanks so much for joining in while I shared the updates going from no walls to actually having “art” on the walls.
Next we are onto other house updates – get ready. Guess I’d better get to work this weekend…
