Before/After~Powder Room Makeover

Recently, I had the privilege of providing an online design consultation for a wonderful client, Anna. Anna was planning a makeover on her main level powder room and she asked me to help her create a polished look.  After providing her with a custom design plan, she got to work implementing the design and the results are fabulous.  Last night, she sent me "after" photos and she gave me permission to share them.  

Before we get to the "after", let's take a look at what Anna's powder room looked like before the online design consultation…


Some of the elements we incorporated were a custom board and batten wall treatment, a dramatic new wall color, accessories/decor, new mirror, lighting, hardware, and fixtures.  We also added "feet" to the stock grade cabinetry for custom detail.

Here it is now...


Anna did a wonderful job bringing the design plan to life.  She even took it a step further by making her own custom art...

Board and batten wall treatment and the "feet" added to the cabinet gave the small space a big personality. 

Since the space is small, there was not a lot of room for accessories.  This meant whatever we chose had to be special.  An iron soap lotion dispenser from Potterybarn was a great choice. 

Thank you, Anna for giving me the opportunity to create a design plan for several rooms in your home and also for sharing your beautiful new bathroom with us.  It looks great!

  1. I NEED a tutorial for the feet on the cabinet! We are getting ready to move into a home that is "circa 1965" in EVERY name it. This would look fantastic in the main bathroom. Beautiful transformation. I really love how the board/batten combo with red paint really transformed the room.

  2. What a transformation! Very nice! I love the wall color. It really pops next to the new white woodwork.

  3. In the post "Getting A Whole New Look Using What You Have" you showed a wall color (by the new white fireplace surround) that spoke to me...what is the color?

  4. love that paint color. I have almost the identical red in my powder room. It's called GINGER

  5. Very timely post for me as I am in the process of redoing a small bathroom. I have fallen in love with board and batten, but was afraid it may make the room look even smaller and that I should probably stick with only painting the walls. Glad to see it is appropriate for use in a small space.
