Powder Room Makeover

in Do it yourself

His name is Timothy Straw from Benjamin Moore and he’s the most beautiful paint color. Not quite green. Not quite gold. Just yummy and beautiful!

Well here…see for yourself.


I really never thought I’d be posting a picture of my potty in the internet.

In case you’re curious, here is a “before” picture. It was a standard, builder bathroom. No storage and an unframed mirror.


This mirror was a Goodwill find. It originally came from Tar-Jay and was beat-up and falling apart. Some super glue, a little spray paint and voila!

I think pedestal sinks are very pretty and practical in small spaces like this, but I would still like to have a bit of storage in my powder room


I had this small wood cabinet that was actually a doll wardrobe at one point. Now it’s black and just the right size for a few rolls of tp and a bottle of spray cleaner.

And a little artwork…

The frames used to be brown and the pictures are scrapbook paper. I love how the poppy color in the flowers looks against the wall color.

A couple of shelves and we’ll call it done.


Have I ever mentioned that I am the world’s messiest painter? I get paint everywhere. In my hair, on the floor, on my clothes, on the kids. Everywhere.


Just in case you thought I was exaggerating.

Hi Kimba, so I just found your blog and I love it! On this post, you have 3 black frames which were formally brown. What was the process you went through to paint them black? I currently have a brown frame I’d like to spray paint another color. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
