The half bath/powder room reveal is finally here! Woohoo! Today’s post is going to be filled with a ton of pictures and not a lot of words. I will be doing a few tutorials next week on how we made this happen, but today is all about the eye candy!
This space is hardly big enough to turn around in, and I don’t own a wide angle lens so please bear with me as I try to show you all of the details!
We replaced the faucet, mirror, and lighting and I couldn’t be happier with my selections! One of our friends happens to be an electrician and he was an absolute God-send for this project. He rewired my fan so it doesn’t automatically come on with the lights. He installed a new halogen track light on the ceiling which gives off the most glorious light on the shelves, AND he installed the two sconces for me. There was a lot of patching of drywall that had to take place and he did the job perfectly!! I wanted the sconces about six inches lower, but I totally failed to communicate my plan to him so they are a bit high.
Here is a better picture of how gorgeous these sconces are. Sigh. I love them! You can find them for yourself by clicking here at Lowes.com.
The mirror reminds me of a Venetian mirror and fits this space perfectly! It’s from Allen & Roth at Lowes and costs around $70.
I will be devoting an entire post on the installation of these shelves. I didn’t want any corbels, and I wanted minimal hardware, and I wanted them to be cheap! We figured out a way to accomplish all of my many “wants” ;).
Styling the shelves was what I was most looking forward to! I used items from around the house and raided my craft room for the two baskets. Storage in this bathroom has always been a problem. Now our toilet paper has a home, my girly toiletries have their own basket, and extra hand towels are easy to grab.
I made the little sign for my Valentine’s mantel so just repurposed it here and the infamous Walmart pet aisle faux coral makes another appearance. The pewter creamer came from a thrift store awhile back.
And here are the shelves in all their glory!
One more reminder of how far this tiny space has come….
I’ll be back soon with some further tutorials and cost breakdown for this bathroom. Thanks for letting me share it with you!
