Thanks for stopping by Starfish Cottage today! I want to share with you all photos from my Powder Room Makeover that I have been working on recently. Last time I shared with you that I had painted the powder room walls a rich brown (I had always wanted a brown room, and in my VERY WHITE house, this seemed the best place to try it out!
While we have loved this sweet little bathroom, we were getting very tired of the brown walls, not to mention, since the room was already small and had no windows, the dark walls made it feel REALLY small!
So after reading about beadboard wallpaper (and seeing it at a friends house) I thought I might give it a try in this tiny space…so I came up with a plan to beadboard and paint the lower 2/3s of the walls and paint the upper wall. I also wanted to install some cute hooks on the moulding to give it a cottage feel. Here’s what I did:
First, I measured, cut and installed the beadboard wallpaper. I got mine at Lowes and simply followed the directions on the package.
After the beadboard was up, I measured and cut simple boards to run along the top (this all got painted the white trim color).
After locating the studs and mounting the trim board, I used my Exacto knife to trim the extra wallpaper.
After it was trimmed, it had a nice finished edge, then it was time to paint everything a semi-gloss white…
In the middle of my project, I decided to remove the gathered fabric skirting I had used to cover the vanity cabinet and painted the cabinet a pretty black and added new hardware.
(Don’t you just love it when one project leads to another and another…LOL!)
All that was left to do was paint the upper walls (a soft khaki color- you know all about me and neutrals!!) and then add the hooks to the moulding. I bought a new rug and brought in a favorite piece of artwork- can’t wait to finish it up and show you the “AFTER” pic’s…just need to find some time to finish everything…
Do you ever feel like you have too many ideas and not enough time and money???
Anyways- wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday!!
