I nonetheless don’t have any of the partitions in the primary a part of our grasp lavatory fully completed, however I’m making good progress on them. I shared the primary a part of this venture a few weeks in the past. If you happen to missed that put up, you will discover it right here: DIY Wainscoting Half 1 — The Anatomy Of Choose’s Paneling With Tile Accent (Toilet Partitions). Right here’s what the essential design of that wainscoting seems like. The band of plywood is the place the accent tile shall be added, and the remainder of it is going to be painted stable white.
Now that the counter tops have been put in, I’ve been engaged on carrying that wainscoting over to the opposite aspect of the door, and wrapping it across the countertop. And hoping and praying that I did all of my planning and calculations accurately in order that it might circulation from one aspect of the door to the opposite aspect, and wrap across the countertop as a backsplash, constantly and flawlessly.
If you happen to’ll bear in mind, slightly below the plywood strip that may act as a backer for the accent tile, I added a strip of wooden (it began as a 1″ x 2″ piece of lumber, and I ripped it down into 3/4-inch-wide strips), after which added an ornamental trim on high. The entire goal of this strip was to take up the width of the countertop that will be put in on the opposite aspect of the door. In different phrases, that 3/4-inch strip would lifeless finish into the sting of the three/4-inch-thick countertop.
After which on the areas the place there isn’t any countertop, the accent tile shall be put in simply above that trim. However across the countertop, the tile will sit proper on the countertop with none trim under.
If that’s clear as mud, I now have a visible that I hope will clear issues up for you. You possibly can see within the picture under how that 3/4-inch trim runs proper into the sting of the countertop. However the plywood (which, once more, is the backer for the accent tile) runs constantly across the wall and proper on high of the countertop to create the tile backsplash.
(FYI, for these of you confused concerning the door, it got here with the panes coated in plastic and pre-primed. So all of that primer is on the plastic, which is well minimize away after the door is painted.)
Right here’s one other have a look at it wrapping across the nook and below the mirror.
After which I continued on with the remainder of the wainscoting parts to complete off the entire trim element. Once more, in case you missed the put up the place I went over the entire particulars concerning the trim items that have been used, you possibly can click on right here to seek out that info.
So whereas it nonetheless wants loads of ending (sanding, grouting, priming, sanding, and tiling), you can begin to see the complete design take form. And let me inform you, I breathed an enormous sigh of reduction after I noticed that each one of my calculations and measurements and planning labored out simply as they need to.
It gained’t be an excessive amount of longer earlier than I’ll have a giant part of wall completed, and I’ll have the ability to see this complete imaginative and prescient come to life.
