This is pretty much what my bathroom looks like right now, but with blue paint & white speckled tile :( We're going to cover the tile w/ wainscoting to give it a fresh look! Go to the link the picture is from to learn how!
Chalk board paint your fridge! I want to do this one day very soon
For the teeny tiny bathroom. Good for phones (of guests) or air-freshener or even a few small decor items. Not books though...yuck, I can't abide by the thought that people in a toilet performing excretory acts are handling books...
use beadboard and decorative molding to update a plain builder grade bathtub I think you could put tile on instead of bead board and be even more waterproof.
This is exactly how our new bath will look when finished. Same color blue and white bead board
