The Powder Room is Finished
Even though I say it’s finished, I’m still thinking about my stenciling and maybe putting up some crown molding… so lets just called it finished for now ok?
This is what we started with…
Pretty boring right? Everything was your basic builders grade and not really something I was digging.
So I started with painting the room, I had a good amount of leftover paint from the Family room so I used it in here as well. The color is Smoke & Mirrors, it’s part of the Color Stories series by Benjamin Moore, it changes color significantly based on the light. The color is basically a gray but can shift for a brown gray to a purple gray, kind of cool right?
I stenciled one of the walls (still deciding if I like the one wall stenciled or not) with “Forest Floor Damask” by Royal Design Studios. I love the stencil, it’s the focal wall I’m still deciding on…
I painted the vanity with “Smoke Signal” by American Paint Company, it’s a clay and chalk based paint. I just cleaned the vanity with Formula 409, then painted it with 2 coats of the paint… super easy… no priming necessary!
After it dried I distressed and sealed the vanity with wax. I also filled in one of the holes on the doors and installed new glass knobs instead of pulls.
My SAH replaced the sink, faucet and top with a beautiful marble, pump style faucet and Kohler under mount sink. I replaced the light fixture and mirror, you know the “easy” things to replace…
I’m the caulker around here so I caulked all of the seams on the marble and touched up the paint around the backsplashes. I LOVE everything about this new vanity & sink! We chose to install a smaller sink than what was there previously so there was more marble visible… who needs a big sink in the powder room anyway?
I’m enjoying the change and pretty happy to have checked this project off of the list!
I am still working on the girls bathrooms and will be able to show you those updates soon!
Thanks as always for stopping by…
Until next time!
