Powder Room Reveal
*tap tap* Is this thing on? It’s been FOREVER since I’ve written a blog post. I’m surprised I even remembered my log in information. But so much has changed in my life since the last time you saw me here. Starting with the fact that I bought my first home!
I closed on my now home a year ago (2/22/22) and immediately got to work making changes. (If you want to see what it looked like the day I got keys, here you go. I warn you…it was much different than it is now.) After 5 years in my last apartment and updating all the spaces there, it’s been interesting to start over with all the freedom of homeownership. Now it hasn’t been all rainbows and sunshine due to all of the global shipping delays and backorders, but things are slowly—very slowly—starting to come together.
Over the summer I did a complete makeover of my rooftop deck (that post to follow this one) so I could enjoy it while the weather was nice. And now that we’re in the thick of winter, I’ve been focusing on indoor project. First up…my downstairs powder room makeover.
I first started by ripping up all the tile and laying new marble tile. This was my first time ever attempting such a labor intensive project, but it turned out much better than I thought it would. I also converted a bar into the vanity of my dreams. Honestly, it’s stunning! But because I splurged on both those items and we still have a lot of house to furnish—6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths—I wanted to go much more budget friendly on the rest of the space. ENTER AMAZON!
I was able to find the most stunning pieces to complete the space at a super affordable price. Each item was individually prices under $200. Let’s get into those details. But before we do, I know you want to see a before of the bathroom. Brace yourself!

Laying new tile was certainly a labor of love, but once it was complete the rest was smooth sailing. First I installed the Crane Wallpaper from NuWallpaper purchased on Amazon.
Then I found the perfect wall mount faucet and sink stopper. The touches of brushed gold brought a sense of glam to the space.
Next up it was the beaded mirror and vanity light. Both pieces took quite a while to arrive—almost 2 months—so I lived without either in the space. But once the mirror arrived, it was like the room immediately made perfect sense.
The beading on the mirror played so well with the body of the cranes, the folds of the sink mimic the organic shape of the crane wings, and shape of the light fixture calls to the elegant and long neck of a crane.
The final touches included hand creme, a signature scent and an upgrade to the traditional soap dispenser. And to make sure every guest leaves with the feel on luxury on their hands—a marble holding tray and linen napkins.
It’s the perfect powder room for guests and visitors and I’m really happy with how it came together. I’m still on the hunt for the perfect artwork and shelving options for the awkward hidden corner in the room. So stay tuned for that update.
