Powder Room Update Update

I am excited to show you my mini-makeover in the powder room today! I finished up the paper and light before we left, and I still have a couple things left to do (you may notice the toilet paper holder is still missing... Ooops!) but it is pretty much done. And it feels so much happier!

You may remember the game plan I laid out.

And it all came together really well. Sean isn't 100% sold on feeling like he is in Alfred Hitchcock's Birds when he is in here just yet... but Wren is particularly enamored with it (maybe I should have saved it for her bathroom). The bright, yet modern hits of color are a little out of my comfort zone but I am totally digging it in here. 

I am also keeping my eyes open for a bigger print or piece of art for the back wall still.

Particularly because this bathroom has NO natural light, and neither does the hallway it is in white just felt washed out and boring. 

To keep it from feeling too crazy/busy we left the wall reflected in the mirror paper-free.

This way it doesn't look too overwhelming when you are trying to check your makeup or hair.

The little ladder we painted for Wren last Summer (check out the transformation here) fits perfectly by the sink so she can wash her hands easily. We have felt pads on the feet as well so she can slide it into the kitchen if she wants to help at any time.

My favorite thing is the light! It was $35 from Lowes (the mirror is also from there, $39).

And I found a new waste basket on clearance at HomeSense for $10 that matches the metal of the light perfectly.
