Plain & Simple Powder Room Reveal

Oh happy days our home renovations are 95% complete and I can finally start unpacking the boxes that have been stored in our garage for the last 10 months...time to play...hang some pictures...add the little details that make a home.

I am a bit of an old fashioned gal and I like my homes to be a little old fashioned to. When we started doing our renos I knew that I wanted an old world rather Primitive farmhouse look. 

I asked Dave Coyle...a local craftsman specializing in antique reproductions to create our bathroom vanity...a painted and antiqued pine cupboard. I really want to keep things plain and simple and his vanity fits right in with that vision. I got my hubby to install the bowl sink and the hand pump style faucet. The lighting was purchased from EBay and was handcrafted in Pennsylvania. Last but not least I hung an antique mirror and picture...& a fresh spring bouquet sits on the windowsill.
I also added texture to the wall...sanded paint that adds a bit of farmhouse personality to this powder-room. The color is Delaware Putty by Benjamin Moore...Ultra White trim color also by Benjamin Moore.
I hope you enjoyed the little peep at my powder room...hope to bring you more photos of our renovation in the coming weeks.
Cheerio and have a great week-end!

I love how you redid the bathroom, it came out beautifully and that is a gorgeous cabinet. All of the extra touches you added, really give it a wonderful prim look.

Hi Susan, it is so good that you can unpack all your special things now! The powder room looks great, but I confess that my favorite photo is the one of the flowers! Hope that you make the house a home you'll be happy in for a very long time! M

That is a long time to have your house torn up!
Well this is my kind of powder would have a hard time getting me out of there! It just looks like it has always been that way doesn't it? Perfect!

Happy Sewing
