Well, the last feature led me to this remodel and I had to share. First of all, I love the cat, and I know that my cat Buddy has a kindred spirit out there. And then of course the thing we really want to see is the room, and Lisa of Lisa Goulet Design did a great job on her powder room remodel!:
I have a finished powder room!
After living in this home for three years and hating the powder room, can you believe it was too big! Just felt like a big cavernous hole especially with the puny pedestal sink. Anyways, I made do for awhile by wallpapering a couple of walls (the wallpaper from Graham & Brown called Charming – that I blogged about last week) and changing the light fixture to a much prettier one.
Here’s the before pictures:
This last one shows the wallpaper from Graham & Brown. Check out how Kelly’s used this wallpaper in her gorgeously finished master bedroom over at Design Ties.
But now, I think it is my favourite room in the house!!
So what did I do, well first I must give my hubby lots of credit as he did all the hard labour and had to sacrifice himself and go buy some new power tools – it was tough but he hung in there and finished it quickly! 😉 I was also trying to stay on a budget as we will have four children in university and college in the fall and we’re trying to be responsible parents.
A couple of months ago I found the perfect 1920’s mahogany dresser at an antique sale for the great price of $300. I had been looking for one to convert into a vanity that was the correct size, shape and finish. It looked like this when we got it.
Then I went looking for the sink and faucet. Well I wanted an oval sink to mirror the bow in the dresser and I had wanted a bowl sink but the dresser was already 34″ high so I had to find something else otherwise as a vanity it would be too high. After much looking I finally found a Kohler sink for that was oval, the right size and had about a 1 1/2″ lip to make it feel more like a bowl sink. Here it is:
Okay I have the two pieces that hubby needs to get started and here’s the work in progress. This is our supervisor Milo always at the ready to lend a paw.
