The Powder Room

Yes, it is finally time to reveal the powder room, but before we do let's take a little stroll down memory lane. I wouldn't want you to forget what this lovely room looked like before. Especially the before before.

Ouch, I know your eyes are hurting. Sorry! This is actually the second look to this room, but I don't have any pictures of the original blue on blue striped wallpaper that was in here. That is the reason for this LOVELY faux treatment. The walls were so badly messed up after a week of peeling the wallpaper off that I knew this treatment would hide them.

Yes, I know, more painful images, but we must get through these to appreciate the new look. Trust me.

Okay, much better than the other. This was fine for the last several years, but it was time for an update.

The wallpaper border was removed. I have never been so happy to see that gone!

The mess is finally all cleaned up.

Are you ready for the new and I hope much improved look?
I know you're heart is racing! 

There is no easy way to take pictures of this itty bitty room, but here are the ones I got.

Alright we are walking up to it.

Closer

Alright we are in.




Red checked rug from Pottery Barn on sale.


I decided to use a stool as a side table for the soap and hand towels for a farm house look.

Little plate from antique store used as soap dish.

New aged finish on mirror.

Using the Pottery Barn burlap lined basket as a wastebasket. I already owned this.
New bronze faucet from overstock.com.

Hope it is okay to have a picture of something edible in the bathroom.
My favorite painting had to go somewhere and I love the pop of red here.


Mr. Savvy took the brass t.p. holder and the toilet handle and used his bead blaster and removed the shiny finish and spray painted them with ORB. They are just like the store bought finish. Sometimes the car hobby garage comes in handy. He also did the hinges on the door.

I painted both light fixtures in ASCP Old White.
If you look closely you will see that I painted the center of the medallion in ASCP Paris Gray.

I like this much better than the original crackle finish that was on these.

Mr. Piggy moved in here.



Believe me when I say there was much fussing putting this sink back in and trying to get it straight, but
we lived through it.

The beadboard was hung at 2/3 high in the room. I like it high. This room actually feels bigger now.

I will share details on the stool and mirror transformations soon.

Faucet....Fontaine Diamani widespread oil rubbed bronze $127.99 plus free shipping
Pottery Barn rug $39.99
Benjamin Moore Wyeth Blue paint above beadboard in matte $44.99
Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace paint on trim and beadboard...already had.
2 rolls beadboard wallpaper $19.99 each
Trim above beadboard wallpaper under $50.

Have a super week!

  6. Kim-It looks great! I had that same wallpaper border in a bathroom years ago too. My own was that foresty-blue-green.

    It really turned out great and I love the beadboard paper hung at a higher than normal level. Good job! xo Diana

  21. Kim, it looks great. Remodels are so trying, so I know your happy it's all finished. Love the colors you chose.

    ReplyDelete
  22. It turned out so cute! It's looks very fresh with your new color palette. I like that blue. It's very pretty with the other colors you have in there. That was a great idea for Mr. Savvy to redo your toilet paper holder for you. I ended up having to completely replace mine! I know you must be glad to have this room marked off your "to do" list now.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Couple of things. I think the beadboard looks like the real thing. I think the pig is perfect...and I love that you call it The Powder Room. Sounds so refined. Beautiful job and I'm sure worth all the aches and pains now that it's finished!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love it! it looks so bright in there now. Loving the faucet as well.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  50. Amazing Kim. Powder room looks sooo good. All your details tie in so well, and then you end it telling us that is beadboard wallpaper! I could'nt believe how great that looks. We just did our masterbath this year and did high wainscotting panels and it was pain in the wain. Your bath rocks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh, that is so fresh, cute and fun!!! I can't believe the brass turned bronze toilett fixture. Good job, worth wearing those paint clothes you took a picture of..I was laughing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. It looks wonderful Kim

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love it! I also really love the idea of using an old stool for a table there. I couldn't tell what color the top portion of the wall was. Did I miss that? The transformation is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It was a pretty room before, but now it is gorgeous! I love every decorating decision you made. I was thunderstruck when I reached the bottom and found out the bead board was wall paper! It looks terrific. I may have to try that myself. I love the use of the stool. Your choices do make the room look so much bigger (and brighter).

    ReplyDelete
  55. Looks great! What a transformation!

  72. Great job on the powder room! Just remember that the before may not look good now but it was in style back then! We had a lot of trouble with our pedestal sink, too!

    ReplyDelete
  73. LOVE every bit of it... the beadboard, wythe blue, apple painting, sink, rug... well, you get the picture! It's fresh and clean. Perfect little powder room :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Kim, that is absolutely brilliant! I love the beadboard and the blue paint. I think the pops of red are just fantastic, but my favorite is the stool. It is totally unexpected but perfect! I think we should start is "Where is Mr. Piggy?"!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love your color choices and the bead board.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Kim,
    It looks fantastic - love the green stool and soap dish but my favorite is that cute little piggie!

  86. Beautiful jov well dome. Love the beadboard wallpaper. My daughter used it in her kitchen with great success also.
    It is amazing how the paint changed the look of the light fixture. Doesn't look like the same one.

    Have a great week.

  87. The wait was well worth it, you and Mr Savvy did a wonderful job! It looks fresh and clean and lovely. The stool is perfect and I LOVE the pop of red in the pic.

    ReplyDelete
  88. It looks amazing Kim! That little green stool is sooo cute. Love the apples in the loo. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Your powder room has undergone quite the transformation. I really like the stool as a table and the darling saucer/soap dish. It looks so fresh now, Kim.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Really darling. The stool and accessories are magazine worthy.

    A few suggestions - hope you don't mind. I do have to say that the picture over the toilet seems a bit too large in proportion to the toilet/room and is hung too high - you have a tendency to hang your art too high (just trying to help)....also, it is a shame that the mirror over your sink hides the beautiful molding. If you lowered the mirror just below the molding would it be too low?

    ReplyDelete
  91. The bathroom goes with the rest of the house now~carrying all your colors. I love the beadboard and the height you hung it~nice job!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hi Kim,
    Your powder room looks gorgeous!! I love the high beadboard.I love your new rug too.It looks so pretty.

  93. What a transformation, so fresh. The pops of red are great and love that stool. What a clever way to hang the towels..Beautiful job!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Kim, your powder room looks great! I had to laugh about the pedestal sink because ours was a stinker to install as well.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Kim,

    Are there 2 mouldings at the top of the beadboard wallpaper? Do you recall what they are called? I'm having a fit trying to find moulding I like.

    Love everything you do....LOL

    Wanda

    ReplyDelete
  96. Mom, since you have no reply comment instead of an email address I will answer you here. I cannot stand art hung too high. The painting is hung at my eye level and I am only 5.3. The trim is hung at 72 inches and we cannot lower the mirror it would be too low in fact we may raise it some. The pictures just don't give you the same effect as standing in the room. If you will look at pictures of high hung beadboard and trim the mirror is usually always hanging over it.

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great job!! You and Mr. Savvy rock. Mr. Piggy is still one of my faves!! blessings ~ tanna

    ReplyDelete
  98. Wanda, no, the trim is one piece and we bought it at Home Depot.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love how you transformed your bathroom, it is awesome, love the wains coat it makes the room appear larger, every detail down to the bar of soap on the cute plate, oh yes, the picture is great.

    Wow...not sure what to say that hasn't already been said. Well done!
    You have given me lot's of ideas...I have the same high ceilinged small powder room. I wanted beadboard, but was dreading fitting it behind the toilet and pedestal sink. Wall paper...perfect!!!

    Have a lovely week

  101. Wow, Kim! I know I am repeating what others have said, but I think your new powder room is just lovely. After finishing one of my baths recently, I know this was hard work, and you've certainly done a wonderful job. Love all your colors and accents, too, and isn't it a load off your mind to have it finished?

    ReplyDelete
  113. It looks farmhouse fabulous.
    I love the way the rug "pops".
    You know I never thought of getting a rug for my tiny hall bath. Now, I will be on the lookout for a little rug.
    Those sinks are just a bugger to replace. We updated our little bath a year ago and that was hard to replace the toliet and sink with such little room to move around in.
    Have a great week,
    Melissa

  149. Kim, looks beautiful! I'm loving the 2/3 high bead board wallpaper ... I'm planning a similar technique in my master bedroom & bath.

    Was the wallpaper as easy to work with as so many bloggers say? I've been making excuses about not having enough time to tackle yet ...

    And thanks so much for linking up to our "Impossibilities" challenge link party!

  151. I love the farm house take on your powder room! I am so amazed that that bead board is actually wall paper! Genius!

  152. What a beautiful little space. I LOVE the use of the stool as a little sink side table. And that pig - LOVE it! So many fun details...oh, I love the beautiful waste basket too - seems like an oxymoron. :)

  155. Kim,
    I've already gushed about how much I adore this room (is it wrong to adore a bathroom)?! So glad you joined our challenge!

  156. I’m sorry I’ve not visited your Impossibility Challenge post before now – this working lark does get in the way of real life !!!
    I love your toilet (I'm British. We call it a loo!!) room. You have added some really cute and clever features and I think it looks great. Well done and Congratulations on making your impossibility possible!

  158. Love the new look. I've been wanting to try that wallpaper on the dated bar in my basement. I may give it a try now.

  159. Hi Kim, I follow you all the time. But I remember you writing that you found beadboard wallpaper for $19.99/roll. Would you share where you found it at that price? I only find it for around $25/roll
    Thanks is advance!!

  160. Becky, hope you come back here for the answer since you don't have your email attached. I found mine at Ace Hardware, but they quit carrying it.

  161. Stunning what a transformation. Wallpaper is a pain when we had our business in FL We charged more for removal if the paper is prepped right it comes off good but most don't prep and out of all the products for removal Good Old water works the best. Now they have some of the most gorgeous wallpaper but I would just do it on an accent wall. your Bathroom does appear larger and I Love all the accent pieces you put in it. I'm having fun looking at all your projects Thank you for Sharing...Lisa

  162. Hi Kim-
    I also used bead board wallpaper in my hallway - everyone thinks it's real bead board.
    I love how you put the stool next to the sink with the towel and the bar of soap - also love the rug..
    Have a great rest of your weekend.
