Powder Room Redo with Paint

21 December 2010

Powder Room Redo with Paint

After about 18 hours of painting the laundry room and adjacent downstairs bathroom, I decided at some point that the bathroom needed a complete overhaul. Since Neale is in Europe for a week, it seemed like the perfect time to have the room be in a consistent state of disarray. 

It's a half bath, recently converted from a full bath. It's a decent size for a bathroom, and it probably sees more use than the upstairs full bathroom because of it's central location. For this reason, it takes priority over the rooms upstairs which need some love. 

Here's the task list:

  • Paint walls, touch ups
  • Repaint vanity (white), remove old hardware, install new hardware
  • Change out toilet seat
  • Curtain + hardware
  • Rug
  • Wall decor
Here's what it looked like before:

And, just to give you an idea of the layout, here's a poorly illustrated diagram:
And without further delay... the bathroom now...

Here's the total cost breakout:

  • $30 paint (Aubuchon -2 quarts of Benjamin Moore Color Preview Collection in Eclipse, flat finish)
  • $0 primer, sandpaper (my basement)
  • $40 rug (World Market)
  • $36 chalkboard wall decal (Wall Candy Arts)
  • $20 sheer curtain panel (World Market)
  • $19 picture frame (World Market)
  • $5 picture printing (CVS)
  • $17 curtain rod (Home Depot)
  • $18 toilet seat (Aubuchon)
  • $6 hinges (4) (Home Depot)
  • $4 door knobs (2) (True Value)
  • $13 towel ring (Target)
  • white shelf (left behind by previous owners) 
  • candle (leftover from housewarming party 
...for a grand total of: $208. Not too shabby. What do you think?

I love that rug! And the room looks great. I think a small etagere shelf with towels and such would be a nice filler for the space next to the toilet(where the basket currently is). But again, it looks great!

oh my gosh this is just gorgeous! I love that paint color and how nice and simple it looks! Love the rug, curtain and mirror silhouette on the wall! Very nicely done!

What an amazing transformation. I love the colour and whatever you did above the toilet is brilliant. I want this bathroom in my house!

Love this! The color is great and I like how simple things were kept.

Thank you so much! The art above the toilet is actually a chalkboard decal!! We currently play "Finish the lyric" but it's great for parties, etc. It's from Wall Candy Arts and they have a huge selection.

Wow - what a huge difference. Paint is a miracle worker. What a fantastic example of what can be achieved fairly inexpensively. Gogeous! Sonia :)
