Powder room ~

My wallpaper for the powder room has come!

...and the paint: Behr, Cornerstone a slightly less saturated hue than the color I used in the adjacent media/library and a perfect match for the darker stripe in the wallpaper. I think it will make a nice transition between the two rooms.

I also have the new chandelier...

Antique Gold with Clear Beads Swag Plug-In Chandelier

... the new faucet.

Kingston Brass Restoration KB3612PL Deck Mount Lavatory Faucet w/Brass Pop-Up 4 inch Center Polished Brass 

and this beautiful antique mirror which was my Mother's; it will go in the niche above the commode.

 I have even found the glass knobs for the doors; mine will come with brass screws to match the faucet and the other fittings. I am thinking of adding some gold details to the ceiling for a bit of  elegance. The only thing left  to select is the new molding for the cabinets.
 I picked up an new paint brush yesterday along with the wallpaper paste, I always start a new project with a new paint brush.

 The new commode will be installed after all of the painting is done and the wall paper put up so...

It looks like I'm ready to go! 

 I haven't wallpapered anything for a while, wish me luck, but first of course I have to paint.

Thank you for visiting I hope that you are having a wonderful day.

  1. Al the details sound lovely. I am following this reno with interest!

  2. Everything sounds so pretty and can hardly wait to see the reveal. I haven't wallpapered in years. I love it but when it's time to take it off it's a bugger. Don't work to hard.

  3. It's going to be gorgeous. That chandelier is just beautiful. Best wishes with the wallpaper project. It's my least favorite task. I cant' wait to see more.

  4. I love it already! Good luck with your project. Can't wait to see the finished room.

  5. This wall paper looks so similar to our entry way wall paper--I do like it.
