Powder Room Paradise: Not Your Grandma's Wallpaper

We used the long weekend to finish our powder room and it's finally done! Check out the photo gallery below. I will let our Orla Kiely-esk style powder room do the talking...

Before & After...
Before: doors removed moments earlier

After: Kohler + leafy love wallpaper = Paradise
How did we do it?

Finding lighting on Ebay (original Le Klint light)
Still in shock we found original Le Klint lamps for a fraction of the original cost
Using products we already had - extra flooring and baseboards from doing our floors when we moved in
Finding a shaker-style vanity with marble sink counter  ON SALE at Home Depot 

Alex nailing in baseboards - finishing nails and nailset

Installing new PVC pipes to connect the drain to the sink, about $9.00 at our local hardware store where nothing is labeled

IKEA Stave square white mirror to match the white marble sink counter

Wellworth toilet from Kohler - the bold look
Purchasing the most modern 4-inch centerset faucet we could find for under $70 (faucets are pricey!)
And...having a fabulous, hardworking husband who's willing to handle the work while I handle the design

And...having a helpful dad willing to bring over his miter saw to help us make 45 degree cuts on our baseboards and help my husband install our sink!


  1. Looks great! I want to see more of your house!

  2. i love how the bathroom turned out. it looks great. i also like the new kitchen table. where's the vanity now?
