One Room Challenge - Week 6 - The Half Bath Reveal

Hello Lovelies!

I'm so glad you could join me for the final week of the One Room Challenge.
The Reveal of my Half Bath Redo!!

If you've missed any of the posts leading up to today, make sure you take a minute and
 read through them


Without further ado...I give you my half bath.

I picked up this adorable little "toilet" sign when I was shopping on Portobello Road last year in London.  I have been saving it all this time to use for this redo.  (That goes to show you the extent of my procrastination.)  But it is the perfect finishing touch to the space.








Now, let me preface the remainder of this post by saying that I was on a very tight budget for this makeover, but I was able to accomplish the entire redo for well under $1000.  The trick was choosing which items would make the biggest change.

The jumping off point for the entire redo was this gorgeous mural wallpaper that I found on Anewall.com.  I had my eye on it for a very long time, and once I took the measurements and found out it was exactly the right size for two walls of my half bath, it was a no brainer.


And before I get to the rest of the room let me give you a little peek at what this bath has looked like for the past five years...


BEFORE
This is a real estate photo from before I purchased the home.
 BEFORE
Here is the poor neglected state of the space for the past several years.

You can see how much help the space needed!  

So the next thing that I knew I had to do to breathe new life into the space, was to replace the tired old granite countertop.  I was able to score this gorgeous Bella Statuario counter from Della Terra Quartz (which has been discontinued) for a steal by finding a slab in the boneyard of a local granite fabricator.  They cut the backsplash to my specifications - I love the sculptural quality of it.


Then there is the mirror.  This beautiful mirror in around 100 years old and belonged to my grandmother.  My mother was gracious enough to let me have it.  Not only does it look fabulous, but it is a cherished family heirloom which makes it that much more amazing.


I talked about the saga of the faucet in my Week 4 post.  But after a little tweaking we were able to get it installed perfectly and I love the personality that it gives to the space.





The darling rabbit artwork was a lucky Etsy find from a shop called ToadBriar.  Kim, the owner, went out of her way to ship me the print priority and it got her lickety-split.  I love the whimsy Mr. Rabbit adds to an already somewhat whimsical space.  He is perfect!




This room is ridiculously difficult to photograph...but here are a few photos of the mural to try and give you the full effect.




The shadow cast by the frame onto the corner of the wall gives the illusion that the wallpaper is uneven in that space..it really isn't.  Lol!


Some fun accessories.  The candle was a Christmas gift from my oldest son.  The smell of coffee is my absolute favorite and this candle is pure yum!




Unfortunately, my beautiful vanity light did not arrive in time for the photos to be taken, but I promise to share once I get it installed.  In the mean time, here is one last look at the pretty vanity and mirror.


Thanks so much for joining me on my journey for this One Room Challenge.  It has been so much fun to finally give this space the attention it deserves!


xoxo
Wendy
