So when we bought our house, I desperately wanted to do a wall like this one from the Lettered Cottage.
FANTASTIC wall!!! Initially I wanted to do it on the wall in the living room that you first see when you walk in the door.
Handsome Man didn’t think it was a good idea. Something about too many plumbing lines, electric, and heat ducts? Whatever.
Anyway… I opted for a much smaller version in my bathroom!
First I added a distressed 2×6 to close in that awkward gap between the wall and the chimney. Yay for Handsome Man knowing how to screw into solid brick!
He’s cute AND functional!!!
This is the downside to screwing into brick. Especially above the toilet paper holder.
I used scrap 2×6’s for the frame and these hardwood flooring samples for the backside to look like planks.
Personally, I think the idea of using the flooring samples is genius.
Who thought of doing that anyway???
Oh right… That was me! 😉
All said and done, this is what she looks like.
I have all the things that make my heart go pitter-patter on this wall.
Shells and coral from our honeymoon trip to Cancun and a family trip to Puerto Rico…
The big conch shell was from Florida…
Some pretty books….
Yeah…. I LOVE this part of my bathroom!
Not a whole Wonderwall like the Lettered Cottage’s…. But enough to make me very happy!
