Well we finally did it. It’ s done. Over. Finished. Our powder room is complete! I spent a great deal of time selecting all the pieces and worrying if they would work well together. Even getting our hands on some of the items was a challenge. We had to drive to the USA to get the light fixture and waited months for two different faucets that never came.
I do like the one we finally ended up getting. Some items jumped out at me when I saw them and I knew they just had to be part of the room. Like this adorable octopus towel hook! Which I installed with antique hand-made iron nails. I’m pretty sure Liam contemplated murder when I insisted we move the shelves … twice. But I think we finally nailed their placement because they look awesome. Tutorial here.
The shelves are styled with a mix of old and new kinck-knacks.

The tissue box holder was probably the last thing to go into the room, I just couldn’t find anything I liked and most were WAY too expensive. So I went old with this vintage piece from Etsy.
Installing the floor was a nightmare but I absolutely love how the tiles look and feel. They set a swanky tone in the room that the wood and oil-rubbed bronze then tones down.
Oddly enough, I think the thing I am most proud of is the new door handle, because I installed it all by myself.
The bottom line: I love the new powder room. Its strong and elegant, modern and classic. This was Liam and my first ever renovation, it took a long time, was a lot of work, but we’re calling it a success. It’s not perfect, but a vast improvement none the less.
