Powder Room Before and After

Before: Basically functional but totally unattractive. Notice there is a closet door directly across from the toilet. It was an electrical and storage closet which could only be entered through the powder room. Terrible layout!

This is how the room looked when we moved in. 

After:  The closet opening was walled in and a new entry to the closet was placed in the hallway. The bathroom mirror reveals the new wall with the artwork on it. We painted the walls this lovely robin's egg blue. 

 The oval mirror reflects the small cabinet that holds toilet paper and fresh towels.

The carpenter added large moldings to the ceiling and floor.

Here you can see both the top and bottom moldings. The picture with the big white wooden frame mirrors the moldings. 
This is the view from the "seated" position. This is the previous locale of  the awkward opening to the electrical closet. It has been closed off and a new doorway was moved to the hallway outside the bathroom where it always should have been! (Who thinks of these things??)

The farmhouse vanity and mirror, and the pine door in the reflection. I love this little powder room now. 


  1. Wonderful job! I love the color and the molding. You have such an eye for beauty.

  2. That color is so restful and pretty. I have a weakness for detailed molding (we don't have it here, but I love it) and butterflies. A delightful transformation for a very important room!
