Three weeks later and our powder room transformation is officially complete! Like every project, we had a few hiccups along the way (mostly relating to our non-American sink), but in the end we are so excited about the final result. Before we dive into the reveal photos, let’s take a trip down memory lane and take a look at what this powder room used to look like.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with our original powder room, but it was as builder-grade as builder-grade gets. I bet if you bought a new home in the past 5 years, you have a powder room that looks almost identical to this one!
Once we removed the old sink and the back of the toilet, it was time to get this thing started! First up: the beadboard. We wanted beadboard that was taller than the sink, but not 2/3 of the way up. I eyeballed it to pick a location and it ended up being exactly 50% of the height of the room.
We painted the beadboard Caviar SW 6990. It’s a deep, rich black with a hint of a warmer undertone. We wanted something that was almost true black, but wasn’t as cold as a true black can sometimes feel. This color is appropriately named. When I think of caviar, I think of elegance and that’s exactly what this color added to our powder room!
Next up was the marble wall! This was the part of the room that I was most excited, and most nervous about. I have created a marble look on a much smaller scale, but could I really make it a whole wall?
We painted the base Extra White SW 7006, then added veining and color using Passive SW 7064, Gray Matters SW 7066, and Cityscape SW 7067. Overall, the sea sponge and feathers worked to create a marble look! The only problem? It’s way prettier in person that what I could capture in photographs. These pictures don’t do it justice!
Once the marble wall was painted, it was time to move onto the vanity! We designed and created this vanity from scratch and finished it with Jasper SW 6216. We were originally going to paint the vanity black, but picking a deep green added another layer of interest and elegance to the space.
Our overall vision for this room was to create a classic white and black powder room with a modern twist. We wanted the space to feel contemporary and elegant. But most importantly, we wanted it to reflect our style more than our builder’s style! So tell me, what do you think of the overall design?
For everything in this powder room, we used the Sherwin-Williams Emerald paint line.
