Powder Bathroom Makeover Reveal!

Well I gave you all a little sneak peek last Friday about the bathroom we’ve been redoing, and today I’m happy to show you the full meal deal! Welcome to the much improved powder bathroom makeover.

We love it so much and it is so thrilling to mark this room off the ole to-do list.

Like I mentioned last week, myself and a few other bloggers teamed up with Virtu USA to redo our bathrooms using their luxury vanities. And luxurious they are! There is also a great giveaway to enter to win your own dream bathroom makeover too.

Now I haven’t shown this room before on the blog, so here is the builder beige before.

That was a really old picture I took a long time ago too. I cleaned it up for you.

But sadly, this room has been like this ever since we moved in. I hung one thing on the wall and called it done. And I was really excited to have a pedestal sink when we moved in, but now I realize really just how inconvenient they are! Absolutely no counter space at all, no storage, and people always needing toilet paper because there was no where to put it. Just ask my mom.

But now I am so happy to have counter space and lots of storage!

One of the things I love most about this room is that it’s a little more modern and clean than what I typically do. I went with that look because the vanity I chose had that style to me. And powder rooms are meant to be fun and different! I still mixed in a little traditional with the modern because that’s just me. :)

And hellooooo white walls! That is something new for me too.  The color I used is from Sherwin Williams called Ibis White. Love it! And while I do love the white walls in this small bathroom, I don’t know if I could ever do my entire house in white walls. I do love me a little color. Never say never though.

Check out how beige this room was when I started painting on the white.



Crazy huh? Even if you can’t afford to do a full on renovation at the moment, at least slap some new paint up on the walls and cover up the builder beige. It will make the world of difference!

Oh, and another thing we did in here was upgrade our builder light too. That also, is a fairly inexpensive upgrade.

Light before…


And after.

I bought that one at The Home Depot and it’s so shiny and pretty. And BRIGHT. I need to take the wattage down a little. :)

I love how the light fixture goes well with our chrome faucet too.

I love love love the faucet and vessel sink!!

This particular Brentford vanity/basin and chrome faucet is of course from Virtu USA. The mirror also came from them.

And sorry. Some shots I could just not get out of the mirror!  This room is windowless and tiny, so my wide-angled lens was a lifesaver!

For a few accessories, I added a new hydrangea picture from Hobby Lobby, and a little thingamabob on top of the toilet, also from HL.

I do have a wicker trash can, and a wicker floor vase on the other side with some sticks.

Quite a difference and we are definitely loving it! It feels very luxurious and I am SO happy to have this room completed, especially for when guests come, because this is the bathroom to use downstairs.

  1. It is ssooooo pretty! I usually like a lot of color too, but the white is perfect for that space. It makes me want to redo our main bathroom. Hmmm…

  2. Oh, it looks so beautiful. Struggling with my kiddos bathroom redo . . wish the vanity would magically show up. So well styled, my friend. Yay!!!

  3. So striking Emily! I love seeing my vanity in your home in a different way! :) Light, bright and airy… your makeover is perfect!

  4. Love the dark wood with the white walls. Looks so fresh and you can add any color accents.

  5. love love love the hydrangea print!!!! wondering if you could pass on a link or any info so that i may track on down,here in Massachusetts,thank-you enjoy your blog :)

  6. Wow! It looks so good! Pretty!

  7. It’s gorgeous Miss Em! Love the sink and faucet, too. Hard to believe it’s the same space.


  8. LOVE the redo! and with every beige wall going bye-bye, I have hope that one day I’ll be able to tackle mine :)

  9. Wow, what a transformation! I love that you swapped the pedestal sink for a vanity. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now but sometimes it’s hard to visualize the change without actually seeing it done. I’m loving it!

  10. I have to say, I like that white! Easy to bring in other colors. That would also make a great vanity color.

  11. Storage is a must in a bathroom; I am sure your mom is happy! While the before is not bad, the after is beautiful. Love the modern and traditional mix.

  12. Beautiful makeover! It’s so bright and modern! I bet you are loving having all that storage now too!

  13. I love this makeover! What a huge difference. It looks so clean and bright! The only suggestion I have would be to take down that other picture and hang one of those wrought iron towel holders (rolled towels) or some other decoration. Just not a picture. They are too close and too different.

    Otherwise, Perfect!

  14. Pretty! I agree with comment 13(jane) on the prints thou.
    Where did you get the towel? Cute!

  15. This is incredible and I can’t believe that’s the same bathroom Great job

  16. Wow what a difference I love that vanity, your after is gorgeous!

  17. Hi DecorChick!
    Where did you find the pretty vanity? We are about to redo our bathrooms, and I’m on the lookout for nice cabinetry. Thanks!

  18. Wow, that looks so great. I love the vessel sink!

  19. This bathroom redo is gorgeous! The only thing I would do differently is to take the picture hung to the side of the toilet and put it somewhere else, maybe over the light fixture, so light would shine up on it? It just seems like the beautiful hydrangea print needs to stand alone with the hydrangeas on the back of the toilet. That’s just my two cents, but otherwise, just lovely!!!

  20. Awesome makeover. I have a small bathroom about the same size and I am in the middle of remodeling it to spice it up a little. What did you do with your old pedestal sink?
