With Christmas practically here, I realized pretty quickly that my powder room was not up to snuff for my guests. Without soap, a towel, or even toilet tissue, this outdated space needed some help… fast! My clients often struggle to see the vision for what a new home could be for them. Buyers want everything updated and sellers think they need to rip everything out. If you don’t have the budget for a major reno, there are still some easy ways to really make your rooms personal and beautiful.
With a gallon of paint (Hematite in Matte by Behr) this bathroom makeover is pretty mind blowing… well, it is to me. I sanded down the walls, left the studs added by the previous owner, and painted the room from base board to ceiling. The room feels humungous, elegant, and maybe even a little French. (I may have been inspired by my visits to the ladies’ room in a cafe or two around Europe.)
I am starting to think the 90’s gold sponging could be making a comeback. I know I love mine! Check out the video and let us know what you think!
I’ve still for room to grow my art collection here…
