One Room Challenge - Room Reveal!

Wow! 6 weeks sure can fly by! I thought tackling a powder room for the One Room Challenge would be easy breezy. I got it done, but two days past deadline. The reason? I didn't order two key items in time. Next time I won't wait too long to purchase things I know I want in the room.

I'm so glad I tackled this room. Even though its a tiny space, nearly every guest to our home sees it.  As a reminder, here's what I started with:

This is one of the only rooms in the house we did not have painted before we moved in. Because its such a small space, I wanted to do something really fun with it - like paint it black! Here's the original  plan. 

I stuck with most of my original plans, but made a few adjustments to make the project a little bit more budget friendly. 

I'm so happy with the new space! Its dark, fun, and kinda sexy. 

I love the cabinet color. The pulls are a little bigger than what I expected, but I do like them. The counter top looks great in pictures, but I'm not happy with it IRL. It looks painted. So much for self leveling paint. I can live with it, but we'll probably replace it with a quartz counter top.  
The Rock, Paper, Scissors print was worth waiting for. 
Most of the gallery wall art is stuff I had or stuff I made. I found the arrow at a funky store last week. I painted it with gold leaf paint. 

The mirror and sconces are another of my favorite elements. They look great together.

I love the way this turned out! It IS sexy and glamorous...never thought I'd say that about a bathroom. :) The bold black with the pops of red make such a statement, and that rock, paper, scissors print is super cute.

I just love what you did in here. (I did a powder room last ORC thinking that because the space was small, it'd be easy... joke's on me!). I love that you went black and played it up with red and a fun gallery wall. Great job!


I had to look twice to make sure that it was the same room!!! Love the black and the lights! You did a fantastic job on this makeover!
