Powder Room Reveal

Finally, I have completed my powder room makeover.  I still have a few more things I want to add, but for now, it's done!

I didn't think to take before pictures.   Vision small pink roses wallpaper.  Very shabby chic.  I had roses everywhere.  I had a plate holder that held 4 beautiful roses plates.  Katherine Klein prints.  Some of my own art work, roses of course.  My antique dresser, with a spray of roses painted on the drawer.  You get the picture.  A mass of roses.

Fast forward to today.  I have given the room a more modern feel.  We painted the walls a soft silver grey.  I wanted board and batten, but hubby like bead board.  He won out.  Bead board it is.  My daughter found these towels at TJ Maxx and picked them up for me.  I found the hand towels at JCP.

The frame that held my Katherine Klein prints got a makeover too.  I removed the prints.  Painted the frame a high gloss black.  I took the mat and covered it with fabric.  In a coordinating fabric, I fussy-cut some daisies.  Instant art.............

It matches my chair redo perfectly.....

Loving the sunburst mirrors, so had to add one over my dresser.  I added some green pearled marbles around the mirror.

A friend gave me this lamp.  I embellished a cute drum shade.  Love how it turned out.

I found this pretty print on and knew I had to have it.  I added a silver mat to a black frame and it looks perfect.  A cute basket from Home Goods holds the extra hand towels.

My antique dresser was given a makeover too.  I painted the drawers, top and sides grey.  My daughter is going to paint zebra stripes inside the medallion.

My sister had given me this decanter and thought it matched everything going on in here.  I added some daisies.  The candle jar was plain so I added the lattice to the outside to dress it up.  Loving it much better.  My vintage wicker tray holds everything.

And finally, my rug.  Oh, how I love my rug.  A short story about this daughter opened her own salon last summer.  We found this rug at Hobby Lobby.  It was perfect for her entrance into the shop.  She bought another one to stand on at her shampoo bowl.  So, I'm looking for a rug for my powder room.  Nothing is jumping out at me.  Then I remembered *the rug*.  I know it is a little outside the box, but I think that way a lot.  It's a leather shag rug.  Thankfully, Hobby Lobby was still selling them.  I grabbed the only one they had.

I still need to find a nice wastebasket and soap dispenser.  I have a few more mirrors I haven't hung on the dresser wall.  My little stool is getting a zebra stripe top (hint, hint, daughter).  Then I can say it's completed.

Sorry this was so long, but there was a lot to show.  Just wished I would have taken the before pics so you could see the drastic change.

till next time...........
