Powder Room Reveal!

Pin It
We've lived in our house 3 years, and I've completely ignored our powder room (1/2 bath).  I'm not sure why since I use it a gazilion times a day!  Just one of those projects that got put off.

Well, I got a bee in my bonnet to fix it up!  I knew I wanted....beadboard.  Ahhh!  So lovely and fresh looking!  I was thinking something like this:



I started researching tutorials online on how to install beadboard, and I realized  I might be getting in over my head.  Especially when I read on several sites that they recommend removing all plumbing fixtures first (AKA the toilet and sink).  Ummmm. Not gonna happen.  Wayyyy too much work for me!

That's when I stumbled on THIS amazing blog.  She used beadboard wallpaper to mimic the look of beadboard for a FRACTION of the effort, and a fraction of the cost.

I'm sure tons of you already know about beadboard wallpaper, but it was a revelation to me!!

Off to Lowe's I happily went to buy myself some faux beadboard.



BEFORE:




And my personal favorite, the "Hollywood" lighting.  Ughh!  Classy, right?



I won't bore you with the details of how we did our re-do.  That will be a seperate post, so look for it!

AFTER:



Here are some close ups of the "beadboard" and the chair rail:
It looks prettttty close to real beaboard!



Here are the baseboards that I "chunked" up.  Lovely!


New Light Fixture:



Here's our new trashcan:
(a flower pot I spray painted!!)



I am LOVING my new space!
