Before & After Bathroom Makeover


Hi all!  Whew, it's Friday and I'm still floored by your response to the One Room Challenge.  THANK YOU!  I can not wait to show you the entire space on Wednesday.  There's still more good to share.


Nothing sets me in motion like hosting a party, and a few weeks ago I (along with Jill GG) hosted bloggers from all over West Michigan for a blogger social.  You know what that means--they'll use my bathroom.  Our powder room, to be specific.  And our powder room is not pretty.  Well, at least it wasn't pretty.  I would classify it as "fine".  You know the room that's "fine" but you never really liked it?  Not exactly the space you want your guests to be checking out.  

Of course I decided to make these changes just a couple days before the party, and I knew we would be dropping cash on the boys' bathroom for the One Room Challenge, so I basically didn't want to spend any money on the bathroom, just make it pretty.  A challenge, to be sure.

When we moved into our 70's ranch, the bathroom looked like this.  It had a beautiful mirror, but I moved it into our dining room.  Paint color was not for me.

For a quick fix, I used left over paint from our living room to cover the yellow and paint the ceiling.  An improvement. I threw a mirror I'd had since college on the wall, also as a temporary fix.



For the blogger social I wanted to dress it up a bit.  Give the powder room more style without a total renovation.
1) I grabbed the paint from our dining room walls, Calypso Blue by Benjamin Moore, and started painting the vanity.
2) I brought a mirror I inherited from my late Grandma Dolly into the bathroom.
3) I changed the hardware to these metallic driftwood knobs.
4) Added a vintage painting I found at a local shop for $17.

Basically done in an afternoon and the only money spent was on the hardware and art.  Worth it.






Still left to do...
*get a great looking rug
*order an amazing roman shade for window that reflects in the mirror
*possibly replace the counter

Thanks for reading!  I promise I'll write about something else besides bathrooms and my own house very soon. ;-)  Have a wonderful weekend!
