The Powder Room is Finished!

I originally published this post December 10th, but thought there might be readers of CSI that might have missed it . We are in the process of remodeling a foreclosure we bought in Aug 09. Here is the powder room makeover.

Visit thecsiproject.com



The powder room is finished! The first picture below is one of my inspiration photos. I borrowed the toile, bead board and the framed prints with pops of reds and golds from this inspiration. To see more of my inspiration photos, click here. OH! And you can click on any picture to enlarge for better detail - except the first one....


The first TWO pictures below are BEFORE shots. This is what the powder room looked like when we bought the house.




Olive green walls, outdoor back porch lights for lighting, the hardwood floors were ruined because of a water leak. The toilet was stained beyond repair. The sink and cabinet had been pried off the wall (hence the water leak) and broken.






All of the following pictures are AFTER. We had new hardwood floors installed. We installed a new pedestal sink and commode from Lowe's.




The sconces we ordered from Overstock.com. The black shades with gold lining are from Lowe's. The black toile wallpaper is also from Lowe's - a special order.


The black framed mirror is a vintage mirror we had in our former home in the foyer at one time.






The black striped ticking window valance, I made with less than 1/2 yard of fabric for $10.00.



The three chandelier prints above the commode are by a fellow blogger, Teresa Sheeley. She is a very talented lady! I know some of these prints are still available...and she has matching kitchen towels too! These prints used to hang in my studio at my other home.




A close up of the prints.









The silver container below is a vintage goblet, that I picked up at an antique store for $5. It is the perfect size to set on the sink. The red roses are from my local grocery store.



I love how it turned out!


Welcome Home,

Penny

Rosie's Whimsy said...

It looks wonderful Penny! I had to chuckle when you said about the outdoor light in the bathroom. That is exactly what we choose because we wanted a rustic feel and just couldn't find anything we liked better... so we used the porch light that is on our wraparound porch :-)

Oh how lovely. It turned out so pretty Penny. I just know you are thrilled to have it all done. Everything seems to be coming together just perfect.
Hugs,
Dianne

Oh Penny, I absolutely adore what you've done with this powder room. It's fantastic. Your new home is turning out beautifully. I'm such a huge fan of French Country. Maybe someday, I'll turn in all my antiques and traditional style and chase my dream of French Country. It's fabulous. Keep sharing. I so enjoy your blog and your mosaic work is spectacular.

The Chandelier you picked out is great and the red roses just finish the look in the vintage goblet or vase. I love the bead board too. A beautiful makeover. I love it too.

Well I thought I had commented on this before, but I don't see it. This bathroom reno is just beautiful. I love the toile paper and the bead board. I have been wanting to add bead board to two of my bathrooms and may attempt it with the bead board wallpaper some day. Love the black and white that you used in this space.
