A Powder Room Update


Posted by Rebecca, September 19th, 2011

This weekend we got around to hanging a few things in the powder room- 2 white shelves from Target and a mirror from Lowe’s.

The lighting is impossible in this room and yes there is spackle all over the walls. One of the shelves took a plummet in the hanging process and took some wall with it. The story of our lives.

We’re thinking of spraying the shelves a glossy white, using the remaining spray paint from the deer bookends I recently sprayed. I just like the idea of blending them with with the sink and potty.

As for that mirror?

We knew we wanted something fancy looking. I’ve loved this mirror for as long as I can remember and previously considered putting it in the entryway.

But this espresso finish? Not staying.

Yes, we’re planning on painting this frame an aqua sort of color, as I mentioned my love for this combo last week.

(the sink needs another round of caulk and some paint from when the previous mirror came crashing down….I told you touch ups were the story of our lives…)

I’m thinking we’ll go with one of the lighter tones to balance the super dark walls.

It’s come a long way from where it was just 2 weeks ago!

We also shopped around a little for some accessories with no luck. Who knew turquoise mist hand towels were so hard to find? Yes, turquoise mist is the new name I’m using for that color we’re trying to achieve. It’s actually the name of one of the paint swatches up there, but it’s a little too blue I think. I’m in search of the perfect turquoise mist 🙂

Our main goals at this point are to paint the shelves, paint the mirror and finish all of the touch up work that we keep piling on. Then I’ll figure out what to put on those shelves!

    Your bathroom has me craving a darkly painted room! Is that weird?

    Anyways, it’s looking so good and I can’t wait to see that mirror painted! Love the color combo!

    That mirror is money! I definitely think there is an over/under for painting rooms dark. Small bedroom? Nope. Powder rooms? Fo’ sure. Probably seems nice and cozy when you’re hanging out on the throne. 🙂

    I’m normally not a fan of dark colored walls in rooms but I love it in yours!! The mirror in aqua would look amazing 😀

  7. I love the way this is looking! I’m very interested in seeing how this looks when you’re finished. As for hand towels, try Macy’s. They have a whole wall of towels in a rainbow of colors. Do you have any plans for the light?
