Powder Room Reveal




Bathroom with old counter tops before removal.

We removed the old counter top and back splash.  As you can see it did a lot of damage to take off the back splash.

It took lots of filler, spackle and sanding to these walls to get them smooth again.

It took some time but we finally got the walls smooth.

I was not real thrilled about the lighter counter tops without stain.  The floors in the powder room are a dark wood.  So I taped off the walls and the sink area to prepare before applying a darker stain.


I got out the darker color of stain we used on the kitchen counter tops.  



Sorry this picture is so grainy.  It is so hard to get pictures in this small powder room.  There is no natural light.  I like that counter top now matches closely to the floor in this room.

I put the light on to get a less grainy picture but you will just have to take my word that this room came out nice with the new counter top.



I got these cute little chippy barn wood pieces at one of my fave shops in Morris.  The Feathered Nest.  I used one under the old church window and another one to hold a towel by the sink.
Sorry I did not have nicer pics of the powder room but I am loving it now with the new counter top.

I wanted to show you this sweet chippy love I got in Morris too.
Vintage is another shop I love in Morris and this little sweet thing was hiding in the corner of the shop.  It was a steal for an old vintage door like this.  The shop owner had it marked down because of repair needed to it.  No issue with that for me!!!!
Stay tuned to see what I do to transform this beautiful piece of history and re loved it in my home.

I will have that post up soon.
Have a great start to the new week.
Kris

  4. Kris, I just knew that bathroom was going to be beautiful. Your Terry is a wonderful handy man. :) I love the wooden counter and color of it also. Here we have beautiful oak doors and trims and the original doors and wood work are painted..I wish we could change that out one day soon. Hello to your sweet man. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. WOW, great job. I still think you and Terry should open up your own business on remodeling. You guys are amazing and there is not one thing that I do not love - everything is perfect.

    Have a great week and I was so happy to hear that your mother is doing well. Prayers are still going her way.

    Hugs to that special little Cooper - he is a love.

    Hugs,

  17. EXCELLENT changes, Kris! You were smart to match the counter with the floor to give a little break from the white in such a small space. I know, I have a powder room that's similar, and talk about difficulties taking a photo...impossible! But it looks GREAT!

  18. Oh Kris*** gorgeous!!! You did an amazing job and that counter top is so pretty. I would love that in my RV :) every single thing in the room is so beautiful and soft looking. I love the way you decorate. I think the lighting and pictures were fine. I can see how pretty the room is
    hugs to Cooper

  21. Kris, as always, I love what you do. It all goes together to create such a homey, comfy feel. Also want to let you know that I followed your recommendation and am having Lisa Harmon create some new slipcovers for me. I can't wait for them to be done. But I just mailed off the fabric yesterday so it will be a month or so. Alas.
