The powder room is done! I'm so excited to show it to you. It was difficult to take pictures in such a tiny space but I did my best.

And here it is now.....
The sink was a craigslist find for $50....
Ever notice how the magazines rarely show the toilet? Well, it's a part of life and here is ours....
I'd like to find some antique brackets and put a shelf on the wall above it. I've been hesitant to hang much on the walls so far because of the wallpaper.
The old trim was standard stuff so we installed all new moulding and added crown. "We" meaning my hubby, you know the drill. ;)
The towel holder was found on Ebay and the soap dispenser is from Target.
Ruffle towel from Target and the holder was found on Etsy.
A few things we learned on this room:
~ Wallpapering a tiny space is more difficult than a large room.
~ Decorative plumbing parts are expensive. I wanted nice shut off valves with the cross handles since they would show behind the pedestal sink. The plumbing supply had beautiful ones in nickel but they would have cost $120. For $40 and some wonderful free advice we ended up with something just as nice. We purchased the shiny silver ones and used a Scotch-brite pad to create a nickel look. The scour pad worked wonders and now we have "nickel" shut offs for a fraction of the price.
~ It doesn't hurt to ask about display items. Our toilet paper holder was the last of the set so we were able to purchase it for $30. It retails for $146.
~ Be sure to measure carefully and not rely on the store employees to figure out what you will need. With both the wallpaper and the tile we had to order more after starting because it was underestimated. This ended up costing us more time and money.
Overall it was a really fun room to do!
If you've done any wallpapering lately, I'd love to see pictures! I certainly have a weakness for it.
Hope you all have a wonderful week! Our oldest left this on the chalkboard for us:
