Powder Room Reveal II

Hope you all had a great Easter holiday!  I know I got my fill of Easter candy, and am fairly certain my insides are now all made of peanut butter.  But Easter comes but once a year, right?

The powder room is about as done as it’s going to be for the moment.  The big parts anyway.  I showed you the before and after and the yummy stencil last week, which you can read about here.  I was on the hunt for a mirror (at a discount), and came up empty handed.  So, I got an idea on how to utilize what I already had, found some trusty spray paint in Brushed Nickel, and am quite happy with the result.  

But, don’t take my word for it.  Judge for yourself.

You can even see the pretty stencil in the mirror. 🙂

And here is the whole look put together.  My husband We even installed a new light fixture and got rid of the “geometric lightmare” that was there before.

It’s a halogen fixture, and gives off great light (but certainly makes the space a bit more difficult to photograph).  

Now the only thing I’m struggling with are the finishes.  The light fixture is chrome, but the faucet and newly redone mirror are brushed nickel.  I actually bought a brushed nickel towel holder, but am holding off on installing it for the moment.  But then, in the old bathroom, they had  a hodge podge of finishes, so I’m not going to stress about it for the moment.  

This room has come a long way baby.

Remember this?

And we can’t forget this view…

(Sorry for the variations in the paint color – I think part of it is because of the change in the light fixture, and the time of day, but the color reads differently in this last shot).

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!

    Wow, spray paint has come a long way. I recall using a silver paint years ago and the result looked nothing like the one you achieved with your mirror.

    (I have to admit, your new is perfect for the room you designed, but I kind of like the old light fixture that was in the bathroom.)

    I love the mirror painted like that! What a transformation. And the new light fixture is so much better. The room went from quite the crazy looking space to an absolutely beautiful space. Well done!

    Okay… I'm may be way off & totally crazy for suggesting this… but is there any way to rub & buff some nickel on that light fixture? Or… even crazier, maybe spray it oil-rubbed bronze to match the towel holder? Which would be a contrast to the nickel mirror/faucet (I love that mix in custom homes). I dunno, maybe I ate too many cadbury eggs! Just a few thoughts.

    But really, the bathroom looks beautiful and your hard work is paying off!

    Love it!! Glad you were able to reuse the mirror, I think that was a good call to paint it!….Now you can use the money you saved on something else fun!!
