A few months ago, my husband and I renovated our small powder bathroom. It originally had blue walls, a pedestal sink, and baseboards that were tattered from new flooring being installed last Fall. I’m going to show you how we transformed this tiny space. However, I’m going to apologize up front for the photography. The room is very tiny, and it was difficult to photograph. I do not have a before picture showing how the room looked, but hopefully you get the idea from my description.
Here are photographs of the room completely empty.
You can see the plumbing for the sink. Also, from the picture, you can see that we painted the walls a neutral color to match the other walls in the house. We also painted six inch stripes two shades darker to give the room a little more drama and impact. It gives the illusion of a tone on tone wallpaper without having to worry about taking it down if you get tired of it. It is much easier to paint the wall than remove wallpaper.
We also added new baseboards to the space and painted them an off white to match our other woodwork throughout the house.
This is where I left my comfort zone. I spent months looking for the perfect vanity that was in my price range. One day while looking online this vanity appeared. It was just what I had pictured in my mind. However, I just didn’t know about ordering a bathroom vanity sight unseen. It also came with the sink and marble top. Well, after much contemplation, I took the plunge and ordered it, and I’m glad I did. It came from Chan Furniture. It arrived perfectly packed with not a scratch one.
After shopping several plumbing stores and having a great deal of sticker shock, I decided to order my faucet, flusher handle, and tissue holder online. I ordered them from Wayfair, and they were most helpful. They even have a plumbing specialist you can talk to if you have questions when you are installing your faucet which was most helpful since my husband was our plumber to save money.
We added a new mirror that I found at Hemispheres.
I loved the light fixture that was already in the bathroom, but it was pewter and didn’t match my oiled bronze motif. So, I decided to spray paint it black and apply metallic craft paint to the embellished features on the fixture. I was very happy with the way that it turned out, and it matched the mirror perfectly.
I ordered my rug from Overstocks. I like the way the colors tie back to the vanity.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!
