Bathroom Beadboard Project

I forgot to take before pics again, I guess I was just so excited to get started. I wanted to give our master bathroom a little more character with some beadboard and wide trim.

I originally painted it white but then I decided on painting it cream and added some walnut glaze so the beadboard really pops.

I kept the trim white and added some hooks for towells which is the smartest thing I've ever done. No more folding and refolding the towells so they fit perfectly on the two foot long towell rack. It takes about a nano second to hang up your towell and it always looks great.

I also added some of the same wide white trim around the plain windows. Then I added some glass knobs on either side of the windows to hook the strings that normally hang down from the blinds into the bathtub.

This was actually pretty fun and not very hard to do. I love the character beadboard adds to any room and aleady have plans to do some more in a different room.


  1. I love the beadboard project and now that I've looked at your other furniture projects I have a serious case of shabby white furniture envy. Love the black and white contrast, it looks so clean and fresh. Hey, am I your first follower? Cool!

  2. The beadboard looks great - first time I've seen it antiqued!

  3. Looks beautiful! I love the cream+glazed beadboard against the white trim!! -your newest follower, Amanda

  4. i found you via beyond the picket fence and love your blog! the beadboard is so refreshing NOT being the antiqued or whitewashed sort of look. how did you frame out the wall switches and outlets? i like how it looks. your blog has given me so many ideas. thanks!
    stop by and say hi when you get a chance

  5. Could you give a little more info about how you got this look? I've been working on glazing our beadboard and haven't quite gotten this look . . . Thanks!!! Love your beautiful design inspiration!
