before and after

before & after: jenna’s bathroom & jessica’s room

by Grace Bonney

this bathroom makeover comes from jenna rose in ontario. her washroom had been painted a deep brown with dark brown trim, accented by lime green curtains. determined to update her master bathroom suite, jenna wallpaper the back wall in a paintable wallpaper and painted it, as well as the walls, a cream color. the trim got a coat of white paint and the frame around the tub was sanded down and stained with a white oak finish. the elegant chandelier? a thrift store find with new bulbs and a coat of spray paint. the finished result is so relaxing and luxurious- great work, jenna!

next up is a room makeover from photographer jessica claire. she had a friend create the incredible pattern on the back wall using wooden trim! the effect is really striking and the new look? wonderful. great job, jessica!
