5 Steps to Our Powder Room Makeover

3 Materials
20 Hours
Our powder room has been a sad, sad place for years. In 2012, when we moved in it was sponge-painted in orange (yes, orange). I am no fan of orange, guys. I know some love it, but it’s not me. The flooring was a ceramic orange-ish brown trimmed in black slate. The sink was a standard shell-shaped pedestal from the 90’s. The toilet wobbled every time someone sat on it. The trim paint on the floors and around the door was all banged up and chipping. Some of the cabinet trim had broken off. And the fixtures and mirror were that shiny gold that people cringe about now. Seriously, watch House Hunters and you’ll see the cringing. The whole room was blah. It was a bit embarrassing to let people use it. I am so glad it’s finally done. This bathroom makeover can be divided into 5 key steps to fix this room and give it some character.

This was a sad place for our guests to visit.
Paint peeling from water damage.
Trim missing on the cabinet.
This shelf is so cute and made from scrap wood.
The finished look has a farmhouse-style charm with v-groove wainscoting and a custom vanity I built from a dresser.
I love this Moen faucet (aff) and farmhouse style sink I found on Amazon.
The room just looks cozy and finished now. For complete details on the remodel, follow the link.
