Powder Room Reveal

Let's take a quick look at what we started with.  The room was very yellow when we bought the house.  It had a massive formal vanity, window trim for baseboards, brightly colored slate tile and (you can't see it in this picture) a very ugly pendant light.  A hot mess.  Since then it has been a few different colors.

I chose a dark teal printed grasscloth wallpaper from Spoonflower.  They custom cut it to the 4' lengths I needed above the bead board, labeled each roll and provided a legend showing which numbered roll corresponded to which measurement.

I've never hung wallpaper before so my parents were really generous and papered it for me while I was at work.  They said it was a 2 hour job.  They're such peaches.

Then we hung this gorgeous Parsons bone-inlay herringbone mirror from West Elm.

The sink, lighting, fixtures and bead board were all put in the day I went into labor with my now 6 year old so this was strictly a cosmetic upgrade.  Those are my favorite kind.
