Powder Room Reveal



*This post contains affiliate links*

Well, friends, I survived! 

I am happy, really happy

This is the final reveal day for the One Room Challenge

I honestly cannot believe it, but my little powder room that needed some freshening up is now

brighter, clean, and a little more fun.

Don’t you think?

I bet you are looking at this teeny room and seeing a big giant giraffe staring at you.  This giraffe actually gave me the inspiration for the entire bathroom.  I have two boys and I thought how fun it would be to have this art hanging over the toilet – it might make them laugh a little. 

and guests? 

Well, they may chuckle a little too.

Come in a little closer and take a peek…

Isn’t he the cutest?

Oh, and don’t forget to take a look at that mirror.

It’s hanging under a single light by this fun wooden peg.

Which mimics the shape of the mirror.

In the mirror you see the artwork I created for the back wall.

Proverbs 11:27


“Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it.”

This sign is an interpretation/underlying meaning of the verse.

A simple way for the kiddos to understand.

Around the bathroom you can see the planked wood

that I stained, painted, whitewashed, and distressed.

This was a process and I would love to share details with you in a future post. 

The TP holder is part of the same collection as the light fixture.

Every powder room needs storage for some T.P. 

so your guests and you aren’t embarrassed when it runs out.

Here you can also see the amazing hex tile and a closer look at the distressed wood planked wall.

I found this little vase

while we were on a cruise and at a stop in Cozumel.

It fits in here perfectly.

If you look up, you will find a surprise…

The ceiling…

in its glory.

The pedestal sink is beautiful in it’s own right,

but don’t you just love that sweet towel?

Once I saw it, I knew it was perfect for the bathroom.

The faucet gives a vintage vibe that

gives a nod to the hex tile underfoot.

Last but not least,

all powder rooms should have a fresh scent.

Don’t you agree?

It’s been so fun going through this journey with you and all of the uber talented designers/bloggers.

Head over to Calling It Home to see all of the reveals.

You will not want to miss out – trust me.

A big thanks to Linda for hosting this challenge and to media partner House Beautiful.

In case you forgot…

here is where we started.

and here is where it ends…

On that note…

it’s time to celebrate.


Every. Single. Moment.

  1. Brilliant with a touch of whimsy! What a wonderful result for the distressed and whitewashed planks. This guest halfbath is showroom worthy, Angie. I love it!

  2. “Bon travail” Angie! Literally, from top to bottom, you have created a beautifully coordinated room of splendor!

  3. I love how this turned out! The texture and patina are lovely, especially with the contrast between the planked wainscoting and the floors. So cool, I love it.

  4. One of my favorites from this ORC – not a wrong note in the design and execution – just lovely! Congratulations on completing the challenge with panache!

    1. Merlyn – awe, thank you so much! This was quite a challenge and to read such a kind comment really makes me feel it was all worth it. I love it and am so happy you do too.

    1. Hi Nancy, Isn’t it cute? It was purchased at Home Goods. I will see if I can come up with the artist information for you so you might be able to find one too.

  5. Hi
    This turned out so lovey! What material is the wall? Is it a wall paper? Paint? Or something in between? 🙂 great job on this project!

    1. Hi Brittney! Thank you! You can see how I created the wood planks here . This tutorial shows you how to create interesting texture and whitewash to pine. I hope this helps.

      1. You are amazing Angie! I’m not that adventurous just yet. Lol! I was actually referring to the blueish/grey paint. It looks like material but also a really good paint job. Can you Tell me if you used paint or wall paper to get that look? I would love to recreate it and show you how I did? 🙂

        1. Ha Ha! Arizona finishes dry wall with a “knock down” technique. It is a technique that is used to cover up drywall seams etc. All of my walls are like this in my home, so I didn’t apply it, just painted over it. With that said, you can achieve the look on your own. We have had to patch areas in our home and have done it. There are several online videos that show how to achieve it. I hope this helps. Let me know.

  6. Hi Brittany,
    I love the way you did the ceiling!! Is it tile or Wallpaper and if so, where can I purchase it? Looks amazing!!

    1. Hi Maria,
      The ceiling is actually a stencil which I purchased and painted. The stencil is from Royal Design Stencils.

    1. Thank you Laura! The color is “Flint” by Restoration Hardware. I had it color matched at my local paint store. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.
