Powder Room Refresh ~ Wallpaper Samples & a Decision

A few weeks back I featured J’s powder room…the one that was due for a refresh.


After some discussion, we decided on a few things to be added to the room:

  1. Removable wallpaper in a fun pattern

  2. Painted molding on the lower half of the bathroom in a darker color

  3. Pedestal sink to stay

  4. New mirror, lighting and accessories

  5. Needs to be functional and durable

  6. He needs to like it!

Once we narrowed down what we wanted, I created a few vision boards so he could get a feel for the space using the wallpaper choices.

I ordered the samples and after a bit of time, they finally came in.


We taped the samples up to see which, if any, we liked best.  After several views and a few discussions, everyone had different votes.  J and I liked the black and white southwestern print.  His daughter and two youngest sons were in favor of the grey trellis.  The oldest son couldn’t decide.


I wasn’t in a rush to make a decision.  I think it’s important to take your time when making any home improvement, large or small.  In my home, it took me almost two and a half years to choose a chandelier and it finally went up just after Christmas.  This bathroom is no different.  It is a space that is heavily used and I want the final paper choice to be the right one for everyone.

The final decision? We went with the black and white southwestern print.  I am in the process of ordering it at the moment, and hopefully it won’t take too long to come in.

I also have J’s rockstar uncle coming over to help me with the carpenter-type stuff like  hanging the molding, patching the holes from the existing lights and installing new ones…tasks like that.  He will be giving me a timeline on how he wants to proceed with this project and I’m excited for that.  I usually have a vision and can do minor things like painting and hanging pictures, but I need a little help with the bigger jobs.  I hope you continue to follow along because I am super excited to see the result!
