Powder Room — UPDATE

7 Feb

Remember I wanted to Paint my Powder room on the main floor?

Well here is what it looked like before….

And the process…


Now for the mirror when I first got it, it looked like this…

And I loved it, because it looks like old drift wood… but when I put it up in the bathroom it just did not look right, I just couldn’t let it stay that way… So I painted it white and distressed it – I know surprise surprise right?? lol.. but I LOVE IT!!! totally completed the bathroom.

I used both steal wool and A little hand sander, just the kind with the little handle. I rubbed all the edges down and then a little bit through the middle of the frame….

And here is where everything was from:

  • Mirror – $30 Homesense
  • Towels – $10 West Elm
  • Lantern Light – $25 Lowes
  • Picture Frames – West Elm
  • Chair Rail – Home Depot – $40
  • Beach Sign – Winners

My adorable Doggy through the messy process!!! He lays and watches me for all my projects, probably just thinking how crazy I am!! lol

I am so happy with it, a little bit of paint really goes a LONG way!!!!!!!



Bedroom Reno

13 Nov
My Inspiration for this room, was Beachy meets Pottery barn…. I wanted lots of whites, creams & greys with a touch of blue.
Here was a picture I had found that I used as my inspiration…
The first thing we had to do when re-doing our bedroom, was to re-arrange our bed. We upgraded to a king size bed, and since our room is very big & long, it turned out the room looked more proportionate with the bed as the focal point under the window as soon as you walk in. Instead of it being in that left hand corner facing the bathroom.

<Please excuse the pictures, they are a little blurry because they are from my phone>







Bedding from Pottery Barn…
Armoire – $100 @ City Cottage (that I repainted)
Bedding & Bed Skirt – Pottery Barn
Drapes – Pottery Barn
Lamps – Homesense
Night Stand on the left – Homesense
Night Stand on the right – Hand-me-down that was repainted
