Plans for our very small, builder-grade powder room

We’re turning our very standard, very builder-grade powder room into something a little more fancy. I’ve always had very expensive taste (and a budget that didn’t match), which is one of the big reasons I fell in love with DIY. Sure, we’re splurging on an item or two here and there for this transformation, but the labor and love we put into it is going to save us a lot of money!
The design all started with that marble wall. No, we aren’t flying in a giant floor-to-ceiling marble slab from Italy (though that would be pretty cool). We’re painting it!! Y’all, I have to admit, I’m a little nervous for this one, but I know we’ll figure out how to make it happen.
Once I decided on the marble wall, I wanted to add some contrast without painting the whole room. We decided on beadboard for a nice elegant touch.
Then we started designing the vanity. We knew we wanted a vessel sink, and then stumbled upon this one on Etsy–handmade in the Netherlands. How cool is that?? The final touch for our vanity is the gorgeous Contempra vessel faucet that was gifted from Pfister! It’s sleek and simple and should add a touch of understated class.
Y’all know we’re all about a good DIY, so here’s our project list:
- Faux marble wall
I know it doesn’t sound like a lot, but they will all be pretty time consuming due to the detail work (wood filler and caulking takes so much longer than you’d think)!
We are so excited to be partnering with Sherwin-Williams on this bathroom update! We’re big fans of the quality and colors of their paints and for the first time, we’re trying out their Emerald line.
We usually use Duration (which is amazing), but we decided to give their Emerald line a try because it has outstanding resistance to water streaking and spotting. Y’all, I don’t know about you, but I am a sloppy hand washer and always end up slinging water on the walls when I reach for my hand towel. Anyone else? Just me? Cool.
Beadboard and Trim
- Jasper SW 6216
- I can’t wait to see Jasper in real life up against the gold hardware!
We’re kicking off our powder room update halfway through January and need to finish it within 2 weeks. Here’s the current timeline:
- 1/17 – Demo complete
- 1/20 – Marble wall complete
- 1/22 – Beadboard complete
- 1/28 – Countertop complete, ready for oil
- 1/29 – Vanity complete
- 1/31 – Everything installed and final touches complete
Will we be able to do it?
