Powder Room Reveal

Our powder room is done-ish.  We still need to add crown molding and wall art. I might also switch out the mirror and window treatment.  I’ll count it done-ish enough until next week-end.  Why? Because I finally finished stenciling and painting moldings.  Can I get a high five?!

This room is a little bolder than my usual conservative style but I’m digging it…

I used the Nova Trellis supplied to me by the wonderful Royal Design Studio.  (I’ll do a full stencil review and giveaway later this week!)  The white is Ultra White by Valspar.  The black is Black Leather by Dutch Boy.

I was originally inspired by the moldings and use of stencil in this room that I found on Pinterest via Apartment Therapy

Drool worthy.

I’m extremely happy with my copycat.

It’s hard to believe this is even the same room…

Gosh. I love moldings.  Nate wants me to blog that I hate painting them in hopes that I will remember that I do not want him to install more.  He’s such a trooper.

Have you stenciled before?  Do you think the term “powder room” is funny?  My family and friends laugh at me.  Who’s a fan of moldings?  Who’s a fan of moldings but not of painting them?

  2. Michelle, it was an amazing change!!!
    I love moldings too! My grandfather was a plastener, you know? I didn´t meet him, but I see a lot of his work at my grandma´s house when I was a child.

    Love

  6. Wow what a transformation! I looove molding like that. I bet it's really worth the hard work. :-)

  7. WOW! Your powder room looks fantastic! I think you can defiantly do bold in a powder room it makes it more exciting to be in there lol. Love the stencil.

  8. Oh my word, that looks amazing!! I have no idea how you had the patience for that, but it definitely paid off. It's incredible!!!

  10. So cool. Love the design, very unique.

    Have a great day!

  11. Looks amazing! I have 3 or 4 potential stencil ideas I am considering for my own home, having purchased the stencils already. The work in your powder room looks pristine. "Powder Room" is more proper although I only hear the women refer to it as that.

  12. Michelle! This transformation is INCREDIBLE. I am in love w/ that stencil! And I can't get enough molding either. You did an awesome job. I tried stenciling my office last spring but it didn't really work out. I think I'm not patient enough.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Holy moly! You guys are amazing! I love what you did with it--it really is hard to believe that's the same room. Are you tricking us? Did you go to someone else's house for some of those pictures? Because I could do all sorts of amazing before-and-afters, too, if I just walked back and forth between my place and my neighbor's for pictures ;-)

    I love the stenciling--my sister-in-law is stenciling a room right now (and has been, for the past month or so), and it looks amazing but so tedious. Was it a total pain in the butt, or did it feel worth it? Not that I own a wall that I could stencil, but hey, maybe someday. And the molding is fantastic!

  14. This looks SO GOOD! I'm glad you went a little bit bolder than usual for you, it certainly paid off!

  17. I think my favorite thing is how its such a modern stencil. I like how there are no curves and such. This is so gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. WOW, what a gigantic improvement. I adore the stencil. I have been poring over Royal Design stencils and can't decide which one to order. I may have to throw this option into the mix. Awesome job to you both.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow that looks amazing!! You should get a bright, graphic rug like in your inspiration pic too. Like coral or turquoise or mustard yellow? Or all 3 together? Wild!! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  20. amazing!! it makes such a difference! how long did it take you to do it? fantastic job.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love it! Great job!

    I've had my eye on a couple of their stencils. Maybe I'll finally decide which one I want & where to stencil soon...

    ReplyDelete
  22. this looks incredible!!! what a difference!! is the bottom portion just a bunch of molding put in squares? or is it one large piece?

    ReplyDelete
  23. The bathroom looks awesome! I can't believe how different it looks. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  24. High five! I'm LOVING your powder room! The molding is awesome and so is the stenciling. I love that you chose black and white.
    I hate painting molding too, but my skills are limited to painting. If I agree to paint, then Chris will agree to hang more molding. It's a win win :)

  25. Amazing! Love the stencil and the moldings. Just amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love it!! I can't wait to try out some stenciling in our future house. I have a feeling I may have to employ my friends with wine to help me with this because I'm pretty sure my husband is going to run the other way! OH well!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow! Your powder room looks great! I wish had the patience to stencil things...and paint moldings :) Great job!

  28. Beautiful job! turned out great in your powder room. I'm a new follower. I'd love it if you linked this up to my #7 Link Party that started on Tuesday at Project Queen.

  29. Gorgeous! I think you can head on over here next - I've got a few walls with your name on them ;)

  30. I bow down! I don't think I have the patience or steady enough hands to do stenciling - was it easy enough for a painting novice? I can't stop scrolling back up to look at the before and after! The whole room is so glamorous!

  31. Wowsa! It looks amazing! Love the stencil and moldings!

  32. This looks amazing! I love the black and white and the stencil that looks sort of pixelated!!!

  36. TOTALLY digging it! Love how the molding supports, but contrasts with the lines of the walla...gorg!

  37. Thanks so much for stopping by my site!!

    The powder room looks great (I think that word is funny too)! I especially love the molding at the bottom.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my goodness. Thank you for stopping by because I don't think I would have seen this! This room is amazing. I would love to do stencil but am afraid of it. Your moldings and the wood floor are beautiful. We're getting ready to put moldings like yours in our dine-in-kitchen area. Oh I hope it turns out like yours!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Wow what beautiful transformation! You did a beautiful job!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! It's beautiful. I actually prefer it over the inspiration. The moulding is perfection! Great work! And an A for your patience to do all the stenciling. The idea of stenciling gives me the heeby-jeebies. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Great wow factor with that beautiful stencil. It completely makes the space without even adding anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  42. LOVE the molding! I've been wanting to do something with our half bath downstairs, and I've always loved beadboard, but seeing these pics of the molding you've done may be an easier option... and it looks great!

    And thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Saw your link on Bower Power! Loooove the black and white! So fabulous!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This looks fabulous! I've always wanted to stencil my walls but I live in an apartment so I don't know if it would be worth the effort knowing I'll just move away. This has definitely inspired me :)

  45. I LOVE it!! The black and white is SO perfect, especially with the molding! I agree; it IS hard to believe it's the same room! :)

    We say "half bath"...I think "powder room" sounds much classier. I'd attempt to switch but I fear I'd also be laughed at.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wow!! I would have never thought that stenciling and molding would make that much difference!! Your powder room is AWESOMELY GORGEOUS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. HOLY CRAP. It. is. PHENOMENAL.

    Does NOT look like the same room at all, and all that moulding painting and stenciling was SOOO worth it. LOVE this ROOM!

  48. This looks amazing! The bathroom was nice before, but the after is WOW!!!

  49. This "powder room" is amazing! I REALLY like the stenciled wall. And I hear you on painting the moulding. It's a lot like paint paneled doors. No fun at all.

    Nice job!

  50. This bathroom looks INCREDIBLE! I just pinned yours, I love it even more than your pretty inspiration picture.

  54. Wowee!! Zowee!!! This is TOO fabulous. You did our Nova Trellis stencil proud, for sure! Thanks for rockin that project-I can't wait to share! I did a similar thing with moldings in my bedroom, too. Makes a huge difference. Enjoy your new bathroom!!

  56. Great look! I love molding too, but felt compelled to share that I just heard this on NPR... Supposedly the term powder room comes from a small room the was reserved for powdering wigs on the way out the house. That way it was contained in a small space. Here's the link: http://www.randomhouse.com/features/billbryson/

  57. Just stopping by to say thanks for your comment on my Nightstand Makeover post.

    And OMG...you totally dove into stenciling! That is so awesome. It turned out great!

  58. Ok. I love it! I am going to have to work on my bathrooms now, you are making me look bad:) Honestly, I think it looks awesome. I tweeted your post.

  59. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! I am OBSESSED with this bathroom! You are so talented! I love the "pixels" with the traditional style woodwork. Simply gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  60. You are AMAZING. I don't know that I would have the patience or skill - but it turned out gorgeous. So worth your hard work.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my, I love this room. And it doesn't look like it would take a huge amount of money to make it look like a million bucks. I do have a question though, what type of trim did you use? And is your baseboard moldings that high in the rest of your house? I basically have the same layout for a 1/2 bath with the exception that our pedestal sink is round not squarish like yours. Thanks so much!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. This looks SO amazing! I love everything about it good job! I would love to feature it sometime if you are ever interested... let me know!

  72. Linking over from Before & Afters and I've just decided that I need a powder room (which *IS* a funny term)(especially since I've got mostly boys....which would just make it that much more awesome).

    Where was I? Oh yeah - THIS ROOM ROCKS!

    ReplyDelete
  73. This looks AMAZING! Saw you over on YHL today and decided to pop in and see your blog. Hope you have a lovely day!

  74. Can you tell us the name of the sink that you used? We're in the midst of a powder room remodel and I LOVE your sink! Found one that looks somewhat similar @ HD, not sure if your's is the same...thanks. Such a BEAUTIFUL makeover!!

  76. Came over from YHL to let you know that I adore this project! AND I love how the stencil's diamond pattern ends at the top of the room without crown molding (even though I'm sure it would look great with it too, but that would be more traditional). It's just unexpected and I love it.

    1. We plan to add crown molding soon. Things just move a little slower during tax season beings my "carpenter" is an accountant!

  77. Came over from YHL - and, I admit I was at first much more focused on Burger and hoping he was ok - but on later review, your bathroom is beautiful. It was a very nice room to start out with, but, for me, your stencil and the molding are fantastic - even makes the room look bigger to me.

  78. I love it!! The molding is my favorite, no matter how hard it was to install. How in the world did you get molding behind the toilet? Did you have to take it out?
