I recently shared the story of our powder room’s paneled walls,
which involved a lot of masking tape + a lot of poly molding from Home Depot.
Soon enough, everything was given a coat of medium gray paint:
Flagstone by Pittsburgh Paints.
Check out the awesome before + after!
I know! How great!
All that molding gave the newly created room instant age!
Here it is, before — that space was once a short hallway:
I love how the carrera marble hexagon floor tiles
coordinate with the Flagstone paint!
The carrera marble is repeated in the vanity top from Pottery Barn,
which I think has been discontinued:
I chose the New York widespread faucet
from Signature Hardware, $259.95:
Who remembers the wonderful Martha Stewart Everyday at K-Mart?
I loved everything — from home decor items, like this enamel soap dish,
to garden goods + holiday collections!
The striped mug is an oldie Ralph Lauren pattern, Farmstead Ticking,
found online at Replacements, Ltd.
It’s not currently available, but I love this adorable candlestick, $11.95:
Hurry! There are only 4 left!
Back to the powder room!
Our mirror started its life paired with a beautiful dresser,
which we refurbished + sold.
I briefly considered painting it
but couldn’t bear to cover that pretty wood grain!
Our pretty porcelain light fixture
was discontinued from Pottery Barn, + I found it on eBay.
Don’t you love the vintage-style cloth-covered cord?
Speaking of vintage, I hung these blue transfer ware plates
above the sweetest blue shelf that I found in an etsy shop:
But wait. We need to talk.
I am on the fence about those plates.
I love them, but they just don’t look that great here.
But look at the plates I hung in our main bath!
I couldn’t love them more!
I can’t believe I did this,
but I guess I assumed that if I loved plates in the main bath,
I’d love them in my powder room, too!
I don’t know what, if anything, to hang there.
If only Joanna Gaines made house calls!
I mean, how in the world am I going to find a designer
who speaks my design language,
way out here in the middle of nowhere?
Well, check this out.
My friend, Claudia, told me about this thing called Havenly.
It’s an online source of interior designers + decorators.
You can read about how it works on their website.
I think I am going to take their design style quiz, later today.
How much fun will that be?
As always, stay tuned!
We even painted some unfinished wood switch + outlet plate covers from Menards:
See you next time!
