A little Make Over In The POWDER ROOM

Hello loves, I've been tired of our powder room for some time now. It has been 
ginger red for 8 years now, so needless to say it was time to re-paint and freshen up. 

Here you can see the RED paint before, I used to dig that color. 
Funny how taste changes over the years! 

The new paint color is MINDFUL GRAY 
by Sherwin Williams.

The cute little gray baskets hanging from the towel bar are from IKEA. 
I actually put some tiny battery operated twinkle lights into one of them.

The basket on the ground is also from IKEA, 
and so is the little 
basket on the toilet holding the lotions.

The gorgeous new mirror is from Worldmarket.

I love the look, it's so Moroccan!

 I got this little capiz shell wind-chime at our local Garden Center/Nursery, but I painted the top with Annie Sloan Graphite and painted a tiny Moroccan design around it, so it would go better with the look I am going for.

So what do you think? I still need a couple of things for 
the walls, but I sure love how it's coming along!

So now that I took some pretty pictures, it's time to 
get back to real life again and move the bunny litter box back into 
the powder room before some-bunny get's upset!

 Yup that's right, no messing with Bugsy's toilet!

 Ain't he just the cutest? Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Veel mooier zo .
    Ja onze smaken veranderen per jaar.
    Soms denk ik hier doe ik een tijd mee.
    Maar in de praktijk is dat anders.
    En hup weer verf erop.
    Wat gezellige dat je konijn ook daar zijn plaatsje heeft.

  18. Christine,
    Your bunny is adorable. Bet he likes having his area freshened up. :)


  19. Love the new paint color Christine! It really freshened up the room. Bugsy is always so cute!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  20. I can never get over Bugsy, he's such a cutie patootie! I can not let our bunnies inside, because they just nibble on everything, doesn't he do that?? Ours are outside in the garden and believe me part of it is an underground maze because they won't stop diggin! Love your powder room Christine, sieht super super schoen aus, die kleinen Lichter in den Haengekoerbchen sind so so schoen! Love it all!

  21. Perfect. It is a wonderful transformation.

  22. It's looking great Christine! I LOVE the baskets and that mirror!

    Bugsy is adorable... even when he is using the toilet!!


  23. The color change is lovely Christine and that mirror, Wowza, anything morrocan is just perfect, just like Bugsy. We also went through a red/maroon phase a while ago, LOL. It must be one of the most difficult colors to paint over. Layers and layers of paint just to hide the color. Hey, we're woman and we're allowed to change our minds as often as we want to.

  24. It looks lovely Christine! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

  25. Cutest bunny in blogworld! Love the changes in your bathroom, Christine! If you have a sec, and you feel like sharing it at our party in my blog, I'd love it if you would :) Enjoy your week friend!

  26. I love that Mirror Christine it is beautiful and lol at the bunny I thought I was the only on that had a bunny in the bathroom ( some people don't realise they can be litter trained !)

  27. Bloody gorgeous darling! Well done����
