POWDER ROOM REVEAL

What started out as a “quick” bathroom makeover due to project creep (we redid all of our floors on the main level) has turned into one of my favorite spaces I have ever done! I really stretched myself creatively in this space and I feel like every time I take those risks, it just makes me love a space even more.

The picture above shows so many of my DIYs in here – the herringbone floors, blue tile wall, and sewing table turned vanity. Gah! I love all of it so much.

I actually wasn’t very excited about this bathroom reno until I shifted gears from a “safer” tile to this beautiful textured blue one. Cue the heart flutters! And if you follow me on Instagram, you know there was a whole hullabaloo around actually getting this tile since it is pretty much out of stock everywhere, but thank goodness we were able to make it happen because it is so incredibly dreamy.

Drilling into my beautiful tile to hang this mirror might have been the scariest thing I’ve ever done. But oh my gosh, worth it!!!

I love the combination of the light fixture, mirror, sink, vanity, tile…. ok I just like the combination of all of it.

I had some intense moments of doubt refinishing this vintage sewing table to convert it into a vanity. I started to question whether or not it was worth it but now that I’m on the other side of it, I can’t imagine a prettier piece for this room! I have a future blog post in the works dedicated to the vanity, so watch for that if you’re interested.

I used the same classic gold knobs that I used in Theia’s nursery – they still gives me all the feels.

I cut this marble countertop that I purchased from facebook marketplace all by myself which I am so freaking proud of.

Taking something mundane and upgrading it to something beautiful is kind of my favorite thing and I’ve learned that sometimes the little changes are just as impactful on as the big ones.

I’m not going to lie – art is so hard for me. I have a lot of decision paralysis when it comes to choosing pieces to display in my home. After a ridiculous amount of time trying to find the perfect prints, these whimsical penguins and watercolor florals felt like the perfect fit!

This was a fun project, but boy am I glad it’s over. You never realize how nice it is to have a usable bathroom on your main level until you don’t! My next project is another great one and guess what – it’s not in my house. Any guesses on what I’m tackling next?

With love,
