REVEAL: Dated Powder Room Gets a Moody Makeover


Over the last few weeks, we performed some major surgery on this dated powder room and it's not until I create these posts that I'm reminded of what we've started with. . .
If there's one thing you should know about me-I LOVE to experiment with style. I really do use my home as a personal canvas. I know there's always going to be a better way to do things or better materials to use but reality is we try to make due with what we have.
We didn't have a large budget dedicated to this space. However, it didn't stop us from creating a stylish powder room with huge impact-thanks to a bunch of DIY projects, bold colours and left over materials.
Colour plays such a crucial role in creating a room's desired mood. Using a dark hue on the walls + trim for a monochromatic look helps set the intimate feeling of this space (Brush Nickel, P5244-62, PARA Paints).
Affordable and stylish lighting options are so hard to find these days. I scored another Hampton Bay light fixture at Home Depot. It's actually an exterior light that I found for $35. I altered the original look of this fixture by removing the glass globe that sits within the steel housing. I just love the charm of this lantern-style light!
