After a couple of weeks of trying to find time for those pesky “finishing touches”, I finally give you our DIY Powder Room Makeover! This project made a big impact with a relatively small budget — I had $1000 to spend on everything.
To save on costs, we included many DIY projects in this room: a DIY bathroom vanity, a custom beadboard ceiling, a board-and-batten wall treatment, and I did all the tile work and painting myself! Here's the before, the terracotta tile was cracked, and the vanity was rotting from an old leak.
We replaced the tile floor, added a board and batten treatment (painted BM Simply White with the paint sprayer), with a tile border. I painted the walls Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray, which I love. Depending on the light it can be gray, blue, or green. It’s a mood ring color!
We built a knock-off of the Pottery Barn Newport Console and recycled the existing granite countertop. I found the basket at Homegoods. I learned the challenges of photographing a tiny room during this project. The room measures 5’x7′.
This crown molding ledge was the one from our breakfast nook that was displaced by our DIY crown molding shelves. I love it here! I used items I had on hand to decorate it, but I am on the hunt for some colorful antique bottles.
This is our beadboard ceiling treatment. This room had the same seashell plaster textured ceiling that the rest of the house has. I’ve mentioned before that it absorbs a lot of light and never looks quite clean. This beadboard ceiling solved this issue in this room, and we love how reflective it is!
Who would have thought that my new favorite room would be the smallest in our home? Of course, I have a new favorite every time we complete a project. Tap the link below to read the full post and follow along with me on Instagram @ninahendrickhome!
