Powder Room Redo: Chapter 2!

by Shelly

FINALLY!!!! I have pics of our powder room that we tried to knock out in one weekend. Here is what we were originally working with….
Note a few things..the overly scrolly wallpaper, the drapery panel (with more scrolls) used as a shower curtain, the torch style sconces. YUCK! Here’s how it looks now….
As you can see we didn’t drastically change it since we’re on serious budget mode still. But what we did do is tone down the busy-ness of the room and make it a little more soothing. 
We replaced the torch scones with Restoration Hardware Bistro Sconces in oil rubbed bronze. I found them for a steal on Ebay! Score! The mirror actually is not the one that was there when we moved in. The original mirror was a rectangular shape..again..with scrolls and doo-dads all over it. We had this one that we had used in a bedroom and decided it would work for now. Eventually I think I’d like to also get the Bistro Pivot Mirror from RH. 
We also changed out the rug and curtain to a some nice new ones from RH. The towels are from Home Goods and the paint is BM Grant Beige.  
But the room isn’t done folks! Oh no, not at all. Although the vanity doesn’t look so fussy and old lady like anymore, its just not our style at all.  I’m considering finding an old dresser and dropping a sink into it, or a pedestal type sink…. What would you do?? What do you think the room still needs?
