Our master bath currently has the only shower so it gets a lot of traffic. We've been removing the yucky towel bars and moving towards something more "us," which has turned out to be more of a moving target than anticipated. lol
The teal color ended up not getting used.
After a "sloppy" coat of the Khaki Brown, both pieces were whitewashed.
Letters stenciled in Chocolate Bar. Sealed with Polycrylic.
The hooks were a Restore score. They were originally white.
1. primed with Kilz spray
2. brown spray paint
3. creme spray paint
4. sanded for a worn look
5. sealed with polycrylic
The nails and screws were placed all around to prevent the towel holder from moving. Can we call it an "industrial" look? hahaha Seriously, my son has been known to hang from his towel...remember that missing nose on the tiger? Nothing in my stash of hangers looked secure enough for his boyish wiles. If the towel holder falls, its taking the drywall with it, lol.
The amperstand was a wooden find from Walmart a while back. It was painted in turquoise, then whitewashed to soften the look.
We've had this up for a good month now and I rather like the more "grown up" look in our bathroom. Its a far cry from being updated but its a step in the right direction.
