Rustic Glam Powder Room Reveal

I am beyond thrilled to share our rustic, glam powder room reveal with you today. Thrilled because it is finally finished and I love it! Originally,the plan for the powder room was to make some cosmetic changes (a new paint color and an accent wall) and to get an electrician to center the light fixture over the vanity. It took me a few years to realize the vanity light was off center but once I did, it drove me bonkers. I was secretly wanting to replace the vanity top but that was it.

Last Christmas, two of the vanity drawers broke and could not be repaired (I had absolutely nothing to do with it- honest) and those broken drawers snowballed into a new powder room. The floor under the vanity was never finished and I couldn’t find a vanity I liked that covered the hole and was the right size for the 5 x 5 powder room. One night, Big Daddy said “Let’s just put in a new floor and then we can get the vanity we want. We are only going to do it once.” He is the best and so smart too! Take a peek below and I will fill you in on the details.

Here is a quick trip down memory lane. We started with sage green walls, a white vanity and off center light fixture. I think the round mirror helped downplay the offset sconce.

I snapped the pictures before painting the new paint color. Thank goodness for camera phones. Otherwise I would not have before photos.

I painted the bathroom Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal. I think it was the perfect choice for the powder room. I think a lot of people are afraid of using a dark color in a small space because it will make the space feel smaller. I think a dark color can make a small space feel cozy. Have you tried it?

The electrician came to center the light and I casually mentioned sconces because I love sconces and probably secretly wanted bathroom sconces. Who wouldn’t want sconces in the bathroom? I don’t know. Anyway he said sconces would be easier than centering the light and I was like ” Holy crap, sconces it is.” My heart was racing and I was all dreamy eyed picturing my sconces in my new rustic, glam bathroom. It wasn’t until after the electrician left that my headache started. It dawned on me that the vanity area was tight. Adding sconces instead of an over head fixture severely limited the size of a vanity mirror. Finding a narrow vanity mirror would be a challenge not to mention worrying about how it would look. There was no way I was asking to move the electric again ( o.k. I might have broached the subject with Big Daddy but as soon as his eyes started to roll, I thought better of it.) A few days of scrolling through more mirrors than I care to admit and on the verge of looking into a custom mirror, I found a mirror that was the perfect size for the space. It was also tall enough that Big Daddy didn’t have to bend his knees to look in. It was in my budget and on sale! Crisis averted!!Rustic glam powder room reveal.

Vanity Before:

I found the vanity at a garage sale in the beginning of the summer. You can read about it here.

Vanity After:

I stripped the cabinet down to the raw wood. Can I just say it was a labor of love and so worth it. The cabinet was a few inches lower than a standard vanity so I chose a vessel sink to bring up the overall height of the vanity.

I lost count on what headache the faucet was. I just had to have brass sconces. They were the glam to my rustic. I didn’t realize what a challenge it would be to find a matching brass faucet. I finally found a faucet that coordinates with the sconces. It isn’t an exact match but it works.

The powder room is just inside the back door. After living here for a few years, I knew we needed something durable that wouldn’t show dirt. We chose a 4 x 12 dark gray porcelain tile with dark grout. It shows nothing, absolutely nothing! We had the tile installed in a herringbone pattern and absolutely love how it turned out. It is labor intensive and costs a little more but it was so worth it for us.

We had the toilet replaced and Big Daddy hung a couple of rustic wood shelves over the toilet. I am still tweaking the shelves but this is how they look right now for winter.
