Hello friends, thanks for checking in today! If you're visiting from the link-up, I'm glad you're here! I'm working to make over my Powder Bath in just 6 short weeks, taking it from dark and dated to fresh and fabulous.
This week, the name of the game was patience. As a reminder, last week I stripped all of the wallpaper, and because the walls weren't prepared properly before they were papered, there was damage to the drywall from removing the paper. So.... I was at the mercy of my drywall repairman before I could proceed. Fortunately, he worked me in pretty quickly, but didn't start until Saturday and had to come back Monday and Tuesday to finish the process. I debated DIYing this, but in the end decided this was a job best left to the professionals. So, here's where we were Tuesday evening... smooth, patched up walls!
I had to wait overnight for the final repairs to fully dry, so yesterday I was able to prime the walls. Yay for a blank slate- finally- but our time is half way gone... yikes!
Even though I've been waiting to be able to move forward with the walls, I've been working on the other components of the room. The single sconce above where the mirror was will be removed and replaced with a pair of sconces flanking the mirror. Lamps Plus graciously agreed to partner with me again for this makeover and I've spent many a spare minute browsing their huge selection of sconces. I knew that I wanted a brass or gold finish, and these are 8 of the top contenders I narrowed my choices down to-
Pretty, right? I was kind of all over the place between modern and traditional styles. I'll keep it a secret a bit longer which ones I chose, but I will say that they arrived yesterday, and they are FAB.U.LOUS!! I can't wait to get them installed!
Another piece fell into place at just the right time. The mirror is a La Barge replica and the perfect size for above the sink. I found it on my local Facebook garage sale site! Do you use them in your area? I'm starting to love those sites more and more!
