• The Powder Room Redo

    Powder Room Redo Title

    Sorry it took so long. I have been using all my spare time to work on more projects around the house. I am painting and shopping and working up a storm!

    I am thrilled with how the powder room turned out. It is a whole new space.

    It started as an eighties nightmare and was probably the ugliest room in the house…

    I painted the green tiles because there isn’t a lot of water splashing around. I hope it stands up to the test of time. It is crisp and fresh and clean.

    I love the tile and how it fits the character and time period of the home. It started out as peel and stick and is now a classic white ceramic.

    I picked up the vanity from craigslist and I love it.  There is some storage and a pretty marble top. It just needed new hardware and some paint.

    The back wall behind the toilet had a yucky old cabinet that needed to be removed. Unfortunately, that lead to a LOT of plaster repair.

    Sorry for the blurry phone pics…

    I am happy that this wall became a place to display antiques and photos.

    The curatin is a faux roman blind that I made with some fabric I picked up in the summer. It matches perfectly and only took minutes to make.

    The mirror is another craigslist find and is approximately 60 years old. I really like the way it matches the black vanity.

    I also made a little shelf below the mirror on which to lean photos and knick knacks. I spray painted some L brackets antique brass and let them show as an architectural detail. I love it.

    This was a really affordable renovation and it makes a huge impact. It just took some elbow grease and time. I am more than satisfied with the result!

    Well, now that I have the smallest room done, I can get to work on some larger projects.

    Like this chair I am about to disassemble.

    Have a great weekend. We are setting up for yet another foot of snow. New England, this is not what I signed up for!

    If it’s any comfort, when it snows there it usually heads up the coast to us. Love your powder room, espectially the vanity, what a score! I have a very similar mirror as an oval.

      I know it heads to you and I bet you are getting as tired of this as us. It’s really raging outside right now. Again! The vanity was a great score. I had to drive almost an hour to get it, but the price was too good to pass up!
