One Room Challenge - Week 1 - Powder Bath Makeover Plans

Welcome Friends!

I've taken a bit of a break from the world of blogging for the past few months.  But I am so excited to be back!  And I'm especially excited because I am back with a fabulous project to share.

I am taking part in The One Room Challenge!




I have participated in the One Room Challenge previously with a re-do of my daughter's bedroom.


And again with a makeover of my kitchen.




But just in case you're not familiar with the One Room Challenge, let me share what it is and what you can expect here at Hydeaway Cottage (in case you're new here - that's the name we've given our little house)!

The One Room Challenge is a bi-annual event where several designers each makeover a single room over a six week period.  You can find posts of the participating designers and guests - like me - all linked up here.  It's an amazing assortment of design inspiration and I highly recommend following over the next 6 weeks.

Here at Hydeaway Cottage I will be re-doing my powder bath.  This poor neglected room has had nothing done to it during the almost five years we've lived here.  (I know!  It's like the cobbler's children not having shoes!)  But now is finally the time.


So let's jump in to the good stuff.

First, let's start with the sad before photos...
Hey!  At least I put up some art and threw an area rug down.  Lol!

I realize these are the BEFORE photos so they're not supposed to look great, but I still apologize.  The room is quite difficult to photograph given it's small proportions....with terrible lighting and neutral - blah - beige colors.  I can't wait to breathe new life into the space!

And here is a sneak peek of a few of the items that I plan to add to the space.

First up, I'm adding a wallpaper mural.  I've had my eye on a grisaille landscape for what seems like forever, and I'm so excited that I've found a place to add one in my home.  It's going to be a showstopper!

And I'm also planning on adding some rubbed brass fixtures to the space such as the pretty faucet and light fixture below.


I don't want to give anything else away just yet, but be prepared for a new paint color and new countertop as well.  This little half bath will be one pretty lady once this makeover is complete!

I hope you'll join me over the next six weeks and watch this transformation take place!

xoxo
Wendy

Little bathrooms like that are so fun to update! Good luck!
