If you've been following me since the beginning, you may recall that I re-did our powder room a few years ago. It even was featured on Better After, and Lindsey mocked the sunflower border. Here was the before-before.
Yikes! That was some really awful wallpaper! It had to go, but I had a pretty small budget for a re-do.
The moody blue was an improvement over all that green, but a couple of years later, I was getting restless. And I kind of missed the green, just not that early 90s green.
It's a small space, a five-foot square with nine foot ceilings and no windows. I felt I could afford to be a little bold with the wall color, so I tried SW Canary this time.
I scored a new mirror at ReStore, and glued scroll brackets that I stained to match the floating shelf over the toilet. I think the brackets make the shelf look more substantial without adding too much heaviness. The lantern is a Nell Hills find from months ago. It was one of those things that I had to have, but then I didn't know what to do with it once I got it home.
This is a twenty-five square foot room with two doors since the laundry is just off the room. Floor space is precious, but I found this darling étagère at Goodwill to tuck in the corner.
I repainted in August, but I decided to wait until Christmastime for the reveal. It's just so cheerful in there now. I love this darling miniature winking Santa mug. He's so tiny that he gets lost in other rooms, but he fits right in here.
I think it qualifies as vintage since my grandmother painted it about 50 years ago. She signed it, but it's not dated. I should ask her if she remembers making it.
The ceramic pinch pot on the left isn't quite vintage yet. I made it about 25 years ago when I was a kid in school. Another quarter of a century won't make it as darling as little winky Santa!
