Freshening Up!

A lot of people tend to think small bathrooms or powder bathrooms are always dark if they don't have natural light coming from windows? Here's a bathroom I did that brings in a refreshing and spa like feel-with out a window!

First off were the cabinets. The bathroom originally had brown cabinets- so we painted them off white (Kwal's Snow White). For the paint on the wall we color matched Restoration Hardware's SilverSage in to a Lowe's Valspar paint.Then we bought in a new, classy mirror, from Kirklands, to replace the plain square one that didn't have a any frame around it. We then changed out the chrome faucet to a faucet with white handles. Next we replaced the hand towel bar with a more decorative one, and took out the old single, square towel bar, and replaced it with a stunning double towel bar from Lowes. 
Instead of spending the time and money for wainscoting, we just painted half the wall an off white and put up a chair rail to separate the light green paint, and the white paint. 

I found the beautiful rug and towels from Khols bath department. Last but not least, we put up a shower curtain bar with a beautiful shower pattern curtain found on clearance from Pottery Barn. 

If you look in  mirror you can see two floral pictures. (oops they're crooked in the picture!) Those were my Aunt's water color paintings from the 1940's. However, they're not her original paintings. I didn't want to put the originals in a enclosed bathroom with moisture could ruin them. So I color copied them and placed the copies in some elegant frames I picked up from Michael's Craft Store.


  1. Oh my gosh! I love how you refresh things up on your home. That bathroom is looking immaculately gorgeous. I love the vanity lights accent and the classic frame of the mirror. I also like the bedroom refresh. Thank you for sharing the pictures of your home improvement projects! Wishing you guys all the best!
