    What tile did you put on the floor? I am sorry if I missed you talking about it already. Thanks!

    1. They are the Leonia Silver Mist 12×24″ porcelain tiles from Lowes

    I may have missed it somewhere, but you pulled out the baseboard heaters, (always good riddance to those), but what are you using to heat the bathroom? When we redid our bathroom here in Montana we put on warmwire for heated floors, and I love it, can’t wait until we redo out kitchen and install the warmwire there, too.

    1. Our furnace quit on us, so we took the opportunity to install forced hot air! It was a big project, but now we have more consistent heating AND cooling. Best decision ever!

  3. This looks great! I’d love to do the same in my powder room! Can you tell me what kind of wood you used for the board and batten? Is it hardboard mdf or plywood? What thickness was it? One of the things I’m trying to figure out is how thick the wood should be so that the mosaic strip won’t stick out further than the wood. Thanks!

  4. W O W !!! that is incredible and soooo inviting!
    Love it and never thought of this awesome tiling
    around the room!! love it!! thank you again for sharing
    your beautiful instructions and tips!

    Can you PLEASE do a tutorial on how you did the Board and Batten with the tile trim and the wood border I loved your powder room makeover and want to be able to re-do ours! We already have the floor tiles & paint! I cannot get onto instagram..just an old fashioned person, w/o a smart phone (imagine that!)who’d REALLY like to be able to read/see a how-to on your site!!

  7. So lovely and well done. Congrautations.

    1. Thank you so much Pam!

    I love your DIY powder room makeover. Can’t wait to see how you built the vanity.

  9. I just came across your blog tonight and I love your powder room makeover! Especially the pottery barn vanity you built. Will you be doing a tutorial on it in the near future? I also love the finish on it and would love to know how to achieve that myself! I’m now a subscriber to your blog!

    1. Hi Tami! Welcome!! So excited to have you as a new reader :) My very next post will be about the vanity- either this evening or tomorrow!

    Nina, your bathroom looks amazing! We used a similar floor tile in our bathrooms and I love it! I did our powder room floor myself too :) Those 12×24 tiles are no joke to install! I also really love the Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray in here and would love to feature this on my paint color blog, Involving Color. Let me know if you’re interested!

    1. Hi Jena! I would absolutely love to be featured on your blog, thank you so much! :) And yes, those floor tiles were something- I figured it would be easier with the larger tiles- apparently not!

  11. LOVE! What a stunning makeover! I love the board and batten and the mosaic tile used. I have been wanting to do this in my powder bath for a while. Yours is very beautiful! That ceiling is dreamy! lol I have not done a lot of molding / trim work, but after seeing your bathroom, I sure want to. :D Fantastic job!

    1. Thank you so much, Julie :)

  12. This is such a gorgeous transformation! I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with our 1/2 bath (the smallest room in our house too), and I think you’ve given me some great ideas. I love how you put the tiles in the board and batten. So pretty!

    1. Thank you Emily!!

  14. What a change! It’s beautiful. Love the soft yet powerful color choices. And the vanity is amazing!
    (I came over from AtoZ’s link party. Happy to find your blog!)

  15. Love, love, love with a capital L. :) Can I ask where you got the tile? That is the perfect pattern/color for a flip house I am getting ready to start renovating. Thanks for sharing and linking up at The Scoop Link Party.

    1. Hi Barb! Thank you :) The tile is from Home Depot- It’s called Arctic Storm. It’s made from honed marble so it has a really nice matte texture in person. They also carried it in store, so that was perfect. Hope that helps!!

  16. Absolutely love every thing about this makeover Nina! Pinning.

    1. Thank you so much, Vidya!

  20. Really great job, Nina! I love that you built the vanity and reused the top – so gratifying, isn’t it? The bathroom looks fabulous and you should be proud!

    1. Thank you, Cher! We are very proud- we love when we can add a piece we built ourselves to a project! :)

  21. Amazing redo! Love the changes you made and what a difference it makes!
