Believe it or not, this little bathroom used to be my least favorite room in the house! The goal was to transform it with $300 and it…..actually….. happened.

Here’s how:

1. WALL PAINT:  The upper half of the accent wall is Farrow & Ball Off Black. The lower half is a herringbone subway tile stencil by Royal Design Stencils which was no joke. This took A LOT of time and detail work. I almost didn’t make it. (But it was my first time stenciling, so that contributed to the agony.) The rest of the walls are Farrow & Ball Clunch which might be my new favorite neutral. For a project this small, it’s not necessary to splurge on the real thing, so just go to Sherwin Williams and ask them to color match!  $40 for 2 quarts

2. VANITY PAINT:  Annie Sloan custom mix of Amsterdam Green and Napoleonic Blue chalk paint and clear wax to finish.
(I already had everything I needed for this part, otherwise I would have spent a little more!) If you’re in Pittsburgh and you need some, go check out The Backdoor Furnishings in Wexford!
