This bathroom represents much more to me than the secondary powder room for guests, or the smallest room in our house. This bathroom is a bittersweet conquest for DIY victory, a symbol of patience and forgiveness in relationships, our first glimpse of completion in a constant state of progress, and a wishful vision that actually became reality.
Today let’s revel in this triumph and bask in the images of victory, and next week I’ll be back with all the gory battle details (and sources and all that).
As a reference point, here is the before picture. Our little powder room was oh so beige, the very poopy looking kind. I don’t know about you, but I like crisp white in bathrooms so I can feel as clean (and not at all poopy) as possible.
The vanity went from wall to wall which was way more storage space than we need and visually is much too bulky for the room. The half bath is only 3 foot by 6 foot and the builders even lowered the ceiling by a foot in the room just so it wouldn’t feel so tiny proportionately.
In a space like that, we needed every space enlarging trick in the book. I think all the white opens up the room and our vanity has plenty of negative space around it which helps as well.
I still am pinching myself with how it all turned out. It’s pretty spot on with my vision! Sometimes I doubt the images in my head are ever realistic enough to happen, but this gives me a little confidence booster. Maybe my ideas aren’t all that ridiculously crazy after all 😉
Well, this post was supposed to go out yesterday… but it’s been too cloudy all week to take any good pics, so here we are on this lovely Friday! I think after taking 3 months to get our bathroom in a usable state, being one day late on the reveal isn’t too bad. 😉
What do you all think?? I’m just so excited to be sharing my first ever room reveal/before and after pics with you guys!!! Stay tuned next week for the source list and play-by-play of our half bath reno.
