Half Bath/Laundry Design

Welcome to Italy.

Oh no, wait.  That's just the half bath/laundry room in our Colonial style home.  Every time I sit down on the toilet I can look up and admire the beautiful sky and birds.  WTF?

No, but seriously, the woman who painted this mural has serious talent.  And I can appreciate all of the detail, but I JUST DON'T WANT IT IN MY BATHROOM.  Mmmkay.

After a year of bird watching I decided it's time for a change and whipped up this design board:

The project will  involve replacing vanity, toilet, mirror, light fixture, floors and painting.   I am in love with the marble herringbone tile and I think a pedestal sink will help the space feel less cramped. I've been wanting to add wainscoting, but haven't decided if it'll make the final cut yet.  This room contains our laundry closet which I recently painted and had new Samsung washer and dryer installed. I'd like to have custom shelving built in the closet.

The contractors will be out next week to give us a quote. I can't wait to get started!

By the way, I created this design board using Olioboard.  Create a free account and follow me at homewithbaxter.



  1. Wow, that is quite the mural. I'm impressed you kept it for a year ;) The mood board looks great!

  2. I agree - that's some talent! But not exactly my style either. ;) Love the direction you're heading with it!

  3. Excited to see your design become a reality. :) I just joined Olioboard & followed you. I have always wondered how to use design boards. Looking forward to playing. :)
