A Trip to the Beach (Powder Room Makeover)

I love pretty, soothing spa-like rooms. I picture vacation resorts and sunny skies. Especially when this is what my weather forecast predicts this:
and my gutters look like this:


Check out the change Jessica from Vanilla Bean made to her powder room. Feel the sunshine?

Before
After

The vessel sink, faucet and tiles all came from Home Depot. The total cost ended up being more than I anticipated, with a majority of it being the sink and faucet. I’ve been wanting a sink like this for ages, so I’m not complaining!

We primed the vanity with Kilz before putting on two coats of black paint. Once it was dry, I took my handsander to the edges. Just a bit of white paint and the original wood now show through.
While we splurged on the vanity, we saved on the decor. This frame is from the Goodwill. I got it for $1 and spray painted it black.

The starfish is from Hawaii, where J we got
married. Look familiar? We used it for this photo of our wedding rings.

The framed photos are from a trip we took to Destin.

My shabby oar finally found the perfect home! I picked it up from The White Rabbit a couple of years ago for $35. The vase was previously in the kitchen, but fits perfectly here now!
I think my favorite part is the color. It is Tropical Lagoon from Glidden. It is like a Tiffany/Robin’s Egg blue. Simply perfect!

I’d feel like I was at the beach every time I stepped in here. The black distressed vanity is so pretty. I’m a fan of vessel sinks too – it reminds me of vintage wash basins. The tile is awesome and the wall color is so soothing. I love the decor too! The oar is so fun. Art with vacation memories and the starfish with a special meaning are such a great idea. Great job, Jessica! Thanks for sharing!

This ice and snow jellyfish is the closest thing we’ll have to the beach. 🙁
