The Powder Room Makeover

1.19.2015

On January 23, 2012 I revealed the new Powder Room. Seems I like to start painting like a crazy person in January. I had also painted the Sun Room at the same time that year. Sure am glad I keep updating it because the way it looked then is not me at all now. Change is good. This year I'm blaming the gray, cloudy and cold weather for staying in and painting.





The Wythe Blue really didn't flow with the rest of the house and I was tired of it so out came the Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. It's a beautiful greige and I have it in the Master Bathroom, too.

I also painted the ceiling the same color since it was blue, too.

Of course painting the walls led to a few changes in here. Instead of using the old stool next to the pedestal sink for the soap I hung this bracket I had instead. This makes the space feel roomier.

I like to use old bowls I find to hold soap.

I brought the olive bucket in to use as the waste basket.

And this is the view from the.....well, you know. Much better than having a stool in your face.

I moved the vintage rack from the left side of the sink to right where the towels are easy to use.

Old rack from my trip to France.

It is so hard to get photos in this tiny space.

I hung two pictures from my stash over the toilet.



These have a touch of gray in them like the new paint color.

Sachets sit in an ironstone bowl.




The cost of this project. $0
I had everything on hand including the leftover paint.

What's that you say? This project wasn't on my Project List? You know your're right.
I forgot to add it. Oh, well, its's done now.

Tell me have you started any projects yet this year?

Have a super week!

  2. No, I haven't even started any projects, big or small, and you're making me look really bad! Can't believe the changes this powder room has seen since 2012. I need to get a better look at that towel rack, but I like what I see. Good job, Kim!

  6. Hi Kim,
    Your bathroom makeover looks wonderful! Did you go with 6 foot high wainscoting? Also, are your doors antiqued? The bathroom door looks like it received your special painting touch too! I love the wooden frames against the white. Very pretty!!!

    1. No, they aren't six feet high. I just showed hubby how high I wanted them. I'm 5'4 and the trim over the beadboard is just above my head. All my doors on the first floor are painted a very dark brown.

      Thanks

  7. I thought the 2012 powder room was cute but I like the 2014 one, too!! You are putting me to shame, Kim, already having finished a project!!

    Some time could you address how and with what you hang pictures/shelves and then how you repair the nail holes/wall anchor holes when you move something. I move stuff around here, too, and then I've got the holes in the drywall. (Especially the holes left from I've used a wall anchor.) Thanks!!

    1. Barbara, I just use normal picture hanging hooks and nails. It is so easy to patch the holes with Spackle and then paint the spot. Easy peasy. BTW, it's 2015. :)

  9. That is so cute Kim. How on earth did you hang that mirror? It goes above the trim right? Looks amazing.

  15. I usually hate to paint a room but I need one done...you are giving me inspiration to just "gitter done"! Such a beautiful room....thanks for sharing how you achieved it.

  16. I swear, you are the energizer bunny's TWIN! You put us all to shame. I have done alot of organizing and purging but no big projects yet. The powder room looks beautiful, love that little shelf.

  17. Gorgeous, Kim! I really love the new color and that you painted the ceiling the same color. This bathroom is upscale with touches of chippy vintage... just my sweet spot!

  18. My dryer died, so at the beginning of the year I had a new front loading washer and dryer set delivered. They are in the garage of my cottage - I don't have a laundry room. However, I am making a "laundry area". I have added shelves, framed photos, and decorative storage for my laundry soap & supplies. I am also painting the walls Benjamin Moore Ocean Air (a pretty gray, green, blue). It's perfect for Santa Barbara and a beach cottage! I love your makeover. I just don't know how you get it all done so quickly!!!
    Best,

  20. Very pretty room......love the pics and the frames.....adds a touch of warmth....

  21. Very pretty Kim! Your colors are nice and I like that the accessories are a blending of formal and some that are more rustic. Now you have inspired me to complete the powder room here! I have been dragging my feet at the final little touches.... you know, the ones that wait what seems to be forever, and then it's time to redo it all!!

  22. I like this color combo much better. I's much calmer and fits the small size of that room. I'm planning on painting my master bath that same color once we start renovating it. I've already used it in the kids bath and love it. It looks so good against white. I bet that room feels more spacious now.

  23. What? An amazing project for $0 and it wasn't even on your list and it's completed by Jan 19th? I'm so ashamed of myself!!! You're so inspiring!

  24. LOVE the new wall color....so pretty!!!! What a clever idea to use a sconce to hold the little pitcher of roses and soap too.

  29. Revere Pewter is a great colour and now that we have it on parts of the main floor I am looking forward to bringing it upstairs. Your powder room looks lovely. The wall bracket is a great piece. After admiring your wooden stool I finally found a nice old one and put it in the powder room. I was wondering if it might be a bit tight with it in there. Just the other day i was digging through our wood stash to see if I should hang a narrow shelf instead. I am working on a few projects after work so far this month, but none are completed yet. The story of my life lol.
