Hello everyone! Well Week 6 is finally here and my One Room Challenge is complete! I had some doubts I was going to pull this off about a week and a half ago, but I did it. I really love how it turned out overall. I probably will add some more art at some point, maybe change out the faucet and the tile eventually. But in terms of a facelift, this did the trick and my sad powder room feels much more happier than it used to.
As a reminder here is the before:
And here is the after:
A few details:
I swapped out the bronze hardware with modern brushed brass ones from Forge Hardware Studio on Etsy and Rejuvenation. I moved the towel hook from over the toilet (yuck) to the wall next to the vanity. I used this old whale hook that my parents had in our kitchen growing up. I love that I finally found a place to use this in my own home as it's been sitting in a drawer for a few years.
The window treatments were made with fabric from Minted.com. They have some great, affordable prints and purchasing on Minted.com supports independent artists.
I was on a tight budget for this makeover and all in all I spent around $325 - not bad! That includes the paint, hardware, fabric and artwork.
I'm glad I finally finished my first ORC and hope to do it again in the Spring. Remember to check out all the other Afters over at Calling it Home.
