Powder Bath | The Reveal

Well, it came down to the wire, but we managed to pull off our Powder Room makeover in the three-week deadline!! It feels amazing to have it done, and I have all the heart eyes for this tiny little space! It’s been so fun (and a little nerve-racking) participating in the FrogTape Paintover Challenge with the five other uber-talented bloggers, and I can’t wait to see their finished spaces.

As a quick re-cap, FrogTape gave six bloggers $1000 and three weeks to completely transform a room…all will be posted on the FrogTape website for public voting, with the winner receiving $5,000 for the charity of their choice!! How’s that for serious motivation to git ‘er done?! But enough about that, let’s tour our new and improved Powder Bathroom!

As you recall from the Before shots…this was a sad, boring little room. Well, no longer! Between the paper and the pinky-peach ceiling, I don’t know what I love more! We kept the accessories to a minimum, and added just a few things for style and function.

It was impossible to get a full shot (this room is teeny-tiny with a narrow door and tall ceilings!), but the ceiling is the softest shade of peachy-pink, and perfectly compliments the floral paper. We could have left it white, but adding it as a focal point really pulls the room together, and makes everything so intentional.

The modern towel and toilet paper ring keep the room from being too sweet, and the woven basket adds some needed texture.

We removed the cabinet over the toilet so the wallpaper would seamlessly wrap the entire room, but the art helps to break it up a bit and gives your eye a place to rest. I’ve had this art piece for several years, and she’s just been waiting for the right home!

The only real hiccup in this room (besides the accelerated deadline and travel plans!), was with the lighting. We figured out last-minute that my starburst sconces were’t going to fit…but we lucked out with these budget-friendly lights, and were even able to pick them up same-day! I still think the starburst sconces are so chic (and serious bang-for-your-buck!), but these simple lights are ideal for this small room and design.

The baseboards got a fresh coat of white paint, and thanks to FrogTape® Multi-Surface, we were able to get clean, sharp lines, without messing up the floors!

It wasn’t the ideal order of things, but we actually had the wallpaper installed while we were gone, and painted the ceiling when we got home. FrogTape® Delicate Surface protected the paper from paint, and helped us get a clean, sharp line along the ceiling.

I just love this little room so much, and can’t wait to welcome our first guests! ‘Why yes, the Powder Bath is right this way!!’  The kids are even parading their friends through it, so I think the makeover was a success!

So, how’d we spend the FrogTape $1000 budget?
