There are a few more touches we would like to add, but inspiration must strike first. It has the be the right thing. But other than that the transformation is complete. So if you are in the neighborhood, we invite you to come on over and ... um, pull up a seat in our cozy little powder room!

The Transformation is Complete
Eons ago, way back in January I had posted about our project to fancify our rather vanilla powder room (see before shot and concept image here). It actually took us quite a while to complete the project because so much other stuff has been going on, but now I am ready to reveal the makeover.
It actually turned out even better than I imagined. We went to discount stores and antique shops for the details that have brought the look together. We were going for a style that was influenced by European water closets, but didn't look like we thought we lived in Paris or London. The stripes add interest and the touches of black add depth.
I love how this rug fits perfectly in front of the vanity and adds a touch of class to the room. And I got it for only $4.99 at Ross!
This mirror is our favorite find. We picked up this beauty at a local antique shop for under $20 and the details are intriguing. I personally enjoy how the frame is falling apart, it adds age and character to the room.
