Where were we? Ah yes: changing the powder room strategy from blue to green.
This is the living room I’d just finished for a client:
I fell in love with that wallpaper. I mean, LOVE. All those months of focusing on yellow and blue and pink (oops – spoiler alert: pictures of my living room coming soon!)…I was feeling the need for some green. This wallpaper just needed to be in my house – somewhere.
Thus we began the powder room adventure.
Possibly the only thing grosser than a powder room off of a dining room is a full bath off of a dining room. You could actually see the basement bedroom through the floorboards. Wow.
Whew! Lest you think that *I* think the room is really finished, here’s my punch list:
- Paint the window trim and baseboard green. I think. That window trim is really bugging me!
- Receive replacement mirror from One King’s Lane; the first one was cracked.
- Find kick-ass fabric and make a fantastic Roman Shade for the window – for 59 cents, since that’s about what I have left in the budget.
Once those things are done, Gentle Readers, I promise you a wider shot!
