Painted Powder Room

I know I said Monday. I even had it finished by Monday. I just didn't get around to finishing the post...... At least you got to see the updated foyer :) So, like I hinted at in the first ever "Weekend Plans" here at Pike's Place blog, I painted the small powder room in our Townhouse. It's the same color as the full bath in our old apartment, which is Poppyseed by Behr. I really like the richness of the color. I like that it's grey with a hint of blue undertones. While I enjoyed it in the full bath, there was just too much ivory tile. It sort of made the entire space look dirty. There is still the same tile in the powder room, but much more wall space.

Before

All of the walls are off white, as is the appliances, tile, baseboard and flooring. The light fixtures and mirrors are all chrome plated. And, of course the door knobs are gold colored. Makes for a fun trip back to 1990. We try and update everything we can, but there are a few things we're not allowed to change. 


What I noticed first was how much whiter everything looked. I was afraid the color would make it all look darker. It was a nice surprise.


That door. Oh that door. It took so long to paint. Way too many coats to cover it all.


I've just started decorating. I knew that I wanted the walls painted, and that's as far as I got. I did add an Ikea towel bar that I spray painted gold a few months ago. I added another Ikea hanging storage thing. A plain white hand towel from Target and an old bird container from World Market. 


I decided to paint everything. I thought it would look strange if the trim and doors were off white. I kind of wanted it all to blend in. I ran out of paint before I could paint the ceiling, but I'm pretty sure it will look awesome when everything is the same color. 


Over all I am pleased with how it's turning out. Not a whole lot left to do in this room. Which is good, cause it's the tiniest room ever.


To-do

Add art
Add shelves above toilet
New rug
Change light switch and cover

  1. This looks fabulous! A lot like my half bath...a little darker though. I put up white shelves and then used bright yellow accents.
