Sure, our powder room makeover officially started in January, and I’m just now sharing it with you in August. But, even if it did take me most of the year to conquer this small space, I’m proud of my efforts. It was my first time stripping wallpaper (more on that in another post), and I’m happy to say that I did it all by my sweaty self.
First, a quick look back at what the bathroom looked like when I started:
And, a “short” seven months later. . .
I had my heart set on a dark and moody powder room and went with one of my favorites—Urbane Bronze by Sherwin Williams. (This is the same color I’ve used in smaller doses throughout our house.) I kept all of the brass fixtures, and have actually grown to like them with the dark color.
I wanted to keep the artwork a little quirky. (The powder room seems like the appropriate place.) I thought these prints of vintage circus posters fit our family well. . .
I was able to do this makeover without many big purchases. I already had the mirror and the end table, but we did buy new lighting, and I found the rug on Ebay. I either had the smaller accessories or found them at yard sales.
(I tried my best to get a good picture of the light fixture, with not much luck. You can see a better product shot of the light we ordered here.)
And, in case you’re wondering about anything. . .
