Carolyn is a high school math teacher (I’m so impressed) and likes to take on projects herself. She had a little powder room underneath her stairs that she wanted to give a new look without breaking the bank. Here’s how we achieved an affordable powder room makeover.
- We kept the vanity and plumbing (affordable) but painted the cabinet a color that looks good with the existing stone: Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.
2. Another affordable powder room makeover tip: upgrade the mirror. The builder basic mirror was removed and replaced with this Silver Bamboo Mirror from Pottery Barn (on sale now).
3. I showed Carolyn several wallpapers and she has expensive tastes. She chose Galbraith & Paul’s Lattice pattern in the color Stone. BUT, she and her cousin installed it themselves (God bless them) saving some $$$. And the wallpaper makes the room!
And last week, while I was there to go over some other things, we hung some cute art over the toilet that Carolyn bought at her local Orchard Nursery Shop. Carolyn loves an English countryside look.
She also makes great, home-made jam and gave me a jar to take home 🙂 I just served some to our daughter and her friend, Danielle for breakfast.
They are here for a party. Alie brought our dog, Chief back to us but after his extended visit with her in L.A. he only has eyes for her now! 🙁 I will win him back!
