Home Tour | Powder Room Makeover Progress

If you’ve been following my home tour posts, you will know that our house has come a long way since we first purchased it. While there are still a lot of projects yet to get done, I decided to give my hubby a break and renovate our half bath by myself. Let’s just say for a first timer, I did a damn good job!

I still need to hang the base molding, replace the door trim as well as adding a back splash before I can check this bathroom of our list of to dos, but I am happy with the change so far. Let me show you why.Half Bath before & after

You can’t tell by the before image  but just imagine this salmon color on the ceiling as well.  Instead I used Light French Gray- Behr. Its a neutral blue gray so a lot easier on the eye. (The Before photo was also taken before we closed on the house during the inspection.)

I tried oh so patiently to remove the builder grade mirror without tearing up the wall… P.S. Who the heck thinks gluing a mirror or anything to the wall is a smart idea? NOT ME!half bath work in progress2Isn’t this so much better than the salmon?

After much debate we decided it would be much easier to leave it in the bathroom as well… (I tried to cut it out but it wouldn’t budge.)half bath work in progress4half bath work in progress5We were going to save money and just keep the existing toilet until I realized it was more of a biscuit color and not white… ( I lie, I used that as an excuse to get a new toilet.)half bath work in progress6I’m looking forward to adding the finishing touches but for now we can use it again, so I am happy 🙂
