Modern Powder Room Redo

 Powder Room Redo
contributed by The DIY Diaries

What better way to end 2009 than on a high note with a room redo!  This is the post that’s been in the making for oh… going on about 2 months now.  Admittedly, I still have some accessorizing work to do, but for now, I at least wanted to post some photos.
The scary, 1990’s honey oak, bleh-I-can’t-stand-it befores:

Ugly faucet, be gone!!

Getting ready to demo.  We saved the mirror, no breakage!

We also hung new beadboard around the bottom half of the walls, and painted it black.powder room redo 004

Then we cut all of the trim – both the chair rail around the top of the beadboard and also the baseboard with shoe, and installed it around the entirety of the bathroom and painted it with black semi-gloss paint + primer by Behr.  Love this product!

We installed a new round mirror from Hobby Lobby, a chrome light fixture from Lowe’s above the mirror, and bought new chrome bath hardware from Target.
Then we applied these trees to give some interest and personality on the top:

A little birdie told Mason that he’s excited that the half bathroom is almost done.  powder room remodel 006
And here is the (almost) finished product!  Still need to get some accessories.  But I was just too damn excited not to post.  ;-)

The trees go around the whole bath, and overlap at some points.  You can see the trees on the wall opposite the mirror in the second picture below.

We went with a square towel ring, which I thought was unique.  That was Mason’s suggestion actually!  One of the things I like the most about having a black & white bathroom is being able to change out the towels to match the season or my mood!

Say today for instance.  Turquoise blue sounds fun.

I love the trees. They look lovely in the bathroom and I am SO glad you added the little bird.
