The Powder Room

Happy Monday! I spent the weekend relaxing with my hubby, doing lots of housework, and also attempting some new projects which I hope to show you soon. It was a great weekend! How about you??

Today I wanted to show you our powder room. {I think that name sounds so much more ladylike than bathroom don't you? haha} I of course kept things neutral in here, but I have been loving the beautiful color of soft aqua lately, and used that as my accent color. Take a look!

The room isn't large, obviously, but it works just fine for Matt and me.

I found the apothecary sign a while back at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $6! I also have a white one that says "groceries." I love them both, authentic looking or not : )

I think the pedestal sink is so beautiful. Although there is of course zero counter space.

Our solution was this glass door armoir from Target (purchased with wedding giftcards of course). I don't think the bathroom would be functional without it! It stores our toothbrushes, toothpaste, and all of the items we use daily.

I placed my old coffee table under the window. This thing had already seen better days when I bought it at a garage sale for $10. I never did refinish it, but I love the lines and details, and it works just fine in here to set our things on while we shower or get ready. I'd love to paint it white someday.

The white pedestal bowl sits under the window holding my collection of soap. Sometimes I wish lavender soap wasn't always purple : ) The green glass jar was a Home Goods find.

I love the beadboard and moulding used in this room. It's the only one in the house with those details.

Still in love with my $4 thrifted numbered canisters. And you may remember when I redid the little gray cabinet last winter. I always knew it would go perfectly in a powder room.

The glass soap dispenser is from Target. The gray willow basket is perfect for storing extra towels.

I hope you enjoyed the powder room tour! Have a wonderful Monday!
