There’s Nothing Manly About a Powder Room

I just can’t call it a Powder Room. I can’t because I intend to man it up a little. With so much white going on on the first floor, I need to have a little fun with the half bath. So the idea is this…

Half Bath

And this isn’t simply inspiration. I will have that half bath. We’re going to start with white wainscoting  (I know, I know, more white) up half the wall and dark navy blue walls. Right now the toilet is this terrible round scalloped thing so that will be replaced. Then I found this rustic sink base at Lowes.

sink baseThe light is easy. I’m completely in love with this store- Shades of Light. It’s based in Richmond and of course we never went there when we lived there but now here in Massachusetts, I requested the catalog and drooled over it the other night.

It was made for me! So many rustic and industrial fixtures and Edison bulbs galore! It’s fabulous! I highly recommend them.

Anyways, they have the barn light in the photo above. Check it out.


And that’s really it. Doesn’t take much to fill a closet sized bathroom.
