In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.
Blogger and fashion consultant Erin Whitlock Brown applied her talents to correcting a rare color misstep she had made in her half bath. She shows us how a coat of paint in the right shade of green, and a few other simple tweaks, transformed the room into a place she’s now proud to show guests– including her mother.
Read on for Erin’s easy and inexpensive half bath decorating ideas.
In 2008 when I bought my condo I had dreams of turning the ugly builder’s grade white walls in every room of my house into an oasis of color worthy of Pinterest. My first job: the downstairs half bath.
It was a spur of the moment DIY project that went terribly wrong. Originally, my plan was to find a great shade of chartreuse to liven up this minuscule space. I trekked to The Home Depot, purchased my paints and tools and felt super excited to start my first decorating project in my new home.
Sadly, I ended up with something that looked like the equivalent of baby poo smeared on the walls (TMI?). And not to mention, sheer laziness (and defeat) kept me from actually finishing up the project and painting those hard-to-reach places like the back of the toilet, pedestal sink and cleaning up the ceiling.
