It’s amazing how a room (is a bathroom considered a room?) can evolve over the course of living in a home. There’s always the room you inherit, which may be a blank slate, or in our case was NOT a blank slate. Nor our taste. at all.
Then, there’s the room you quickly fix up because you’ve just moved and you had to paint EVERY room in your entire house in one week including a magenta room, a navy blue room, a chartreuse green room, a hunter green room and a Sponge Bob bathroom. yes. I do not lie.
Then, when you have some free time and when you start to feel a little creative and confident in your interior design abilities and DIY skills you change it once again.
Actually the room, as it is now, is quite lovely.
About two years ago, I painted the oak vanity black.
I added a new oiled bronze faucet (LOVE Overstock for inexpensive faucets), and new oiled bronze hardware.
I removed the builder grade mirror and added a decorative mirror that I picked up at Home Goods.
This was also my first attempt at installing a light fixture on my own. Needless to say, I was quite pleased when it actually worked!
But, as many of you know I have recently undertook a major renovation in our home. This one has included a complete kitchen remodel and a completedining room remodel. I have installed copious amounts of beadboard and wainscoting and have found I am now helplessly and hopelessly drawn to grays, and blues and crisp white. And the word tangerine is quietly creeping into my vocabulary
So, once again I am embarking on a powder room makeover. This one’s going to be a dramatic one, folks…okay so as dramatic as a powder room makeover can be.
The beadboard and paint started going up over the weekend (I SWEAR I never thought I’d be painting walls BACK to white! ) and some other exciting features are going to be incorporated into the design.
