Half Bath Reveal!

edit IMGP1303

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.

    1. Haha! 🙂 Thanks Tania, I don’t know why people do that to bathrooms… lol. No, I did a stencil. I’ve been lusting over the Imperial Trellis wallpaper on Pinterest lately, but I found a stencil in the same pattern and it was much more cost effective!

  1. First of, you have an excellent name 😉

    I LOVE this space. It is so fresh and happy! And certainly not boring. Nice choice on the bold pattern, it definitely makes the room seem bigger.

    1. Why thank you, so do you!! 😉 And that is so sweet, thanks for the kind words! I was definitely concerned that the business may dwarf the room, so that is great to hear! (ps: I love your fresh style and use of color on your blog!!!)

  2. This is so gorgeous!! I LOVE that bold yellow print, it just works so perfectly with the white. Fresh and crisp indeed! This is great inspiration for my old ugly guest bath! 🙂

    1. Krista, why thank you so much!!! Your sweet words mean a lot, and I am so honored and excited to be featured this week! 🙂 🙂

  3. I love everything about this bathroom!! It is so bright and cherry and just makes you want to spend time in there, haha!! We will be moving this summer and this makes me want to do something like this in our new house. Fantastic job!! Thanks for linking up to last week’s Handmade Hangout Party. I will be featuring this tomorrow.

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Allison! And I’m so honored to be featured 🙂 Haha, that is the dangerous part about blogging, all the inspiration makes me itch to change everything around our house!!

  4. You did an awesome job! The yellow & white are so bright and cheerful. I love the mirror too!
    Thanks for joining the #HomeMattersParty – we hope to see you again next week 🙂

  5. I’m so inspired by your choices. I have a similar half bath project pending and your ideas are so lovely. How did you treat the ceiling?????

    1. Thanks Lisa!! 🙂 You know all I did for the ceiling was paint it white and spray paint the vent fan white as well… I’ve been thinking lately about how cute a stenciled or wallpapered ceiling would be in a bathroom 🙂 Good luck on your remodel!

Go ahead and comment, you know you want to...
