We had one of those Plain Jane half bathrooms. Cream walls, standard pedestal sink, builder’s grade toilet, in a cramped little space. The only thing unique about it was the toothbrush holder glued to the wall. In a half bath! That was the first to go. Other than that, I wanted to find a way to make the tiny space with no windows appear larger, and give it some character.
For the paint, I settled on a dark, muted navy for the back wall and an off-white for the other three. The white made it feel more airy, while the dark accent wall gives almost all illusion of depth.
When it came to the shelving above the toilet, I wanted something that fit the width perfectly. Stephen found this old wooden plank from Second Chance, a local refurbishing supply store. They must have pulled it from an old building near Baltimore that was being torn down. Or at least that’s my guess. We bought the black metal shelf pieces from Home Depot.
