Powder Room Plan

I know I haven't yet finished the Master Bedroom, but I've "started" another new project in my home. Don't worry the bedroom is ALMOST done. I just need to get the settee reupholstered and the dresser painted.. and then I will be able to put it all together. Yayyy!

Remember the lucite chairs (how could you forget??) Well, even though it pained me so, I did sell them. Before you disown me, let me explain. We are in DIRE need of updating our powder room. It's embarrassing guys. If you need a refresher, here is what it currently looks like:



1990's-era hunter green wallpaper with a floral border is bad enough.. but then add popcorn ceiling dust and ceiling paint and it goes from bad to terrible.

Selling the lucite chairs was a blessing.. now I can finally update this bathroom and stop apologizing for it when guests need to use the restroom.

I've written about the powder room before here. I've known for a while I've wanted to paper the room in grasscloth. I decided on this grasscloth sample I ordered:



I recently saw that this mirror from Wisteria is majorly on sale. (Good news - it still is!!).




I placed the order and it's been sitting my in my dining room waiting to be hung. It's so pretty with the grasscloth.. love it.



And here is the board I created for the room:



I do have good news for you guys though - I sold the chairs to a friend of mine! She is going to have them recovered in a fun laminated fabric and promised me I could share the before and afters on the blog. Yay!

  8. We have a grasscloth bathroom - and it is great! The one thing i would say about it is that once there is a hole in it ... you are committed (which i guess it true for all wallpapers)

    Love, love cannot wait for pictures!

    love the plan for grasscloth! I used to work at a newspaper where the editorial offices were all papered with grasscloth; it was a treat just to go in to talk to an editor!
