A few weeks back I featured J’s powder room…the one that was due for a refresh.
After some discussion, we decided on a few things to be added to the room:
- Removable wallpaper in a fun pattern
- Painted molding on the lower half of the bathroom in a darker color
- Pedestal sink to stay
- New mirror, lighting and accessories
- Needs to be functional and durable
- He needs to like it!
Once we narrowed down what we wanted, I created a few vision boards so he could get a feel for the space using the wallpaper choices.
I ordered the samples and after a bit of time, they finally came in.
We taped the samples up to see which, if any, we liked best. After several views and a few discussions, everyone had different votes. J and I liked the black and white southwestern print. His daughter and two youngest sons were in favor of the grey trellis. The oldest son couldn’t decide.
I wasn’t in a rush to make a decision. I think it’s important to take your time when making any home improvement, large or small. In my home, it took me almost two and a half years to choose a chandelier and it finally went up just after Christmas. This bathroom is no different. It is a space that is heavily used and I want the final paper choice to be the right one for everyone.
The final decision? We went with the black and white southwestern print. I am in the process of ordering it at the moment, and hopefully it won’t take too long to come in.
I also have J’s rockstar uncle coming over to help me with the carpenter-type stuff like hanging the molding, patching the holes from the existing lights and installing new ones…tasks like that. He will be giving me a timeline on how he wants to proceed with this project and I’m excited for that. I usually have a vision and can do minor things like painting and hanging pictures, but I need a little help with the bigger jobs. I hope you continue to follow along because I am super excited to see the result!
