The second project I wanted to work on with my dad was painting our powder room or our half bath downstairs. Everyone out here laughs when I say "powder room." It must be a southern thing. It was red when we moved in and while I would normally love a red bathroom, it just felt really small and dark. I had in my mind more of a sage-y green color but it turned out a little brighter and it has very quickly become one of my favorite little happy rooms.
I thought about my grandfather alot while I was painting the bathroom and while I was refinishing the picnic table. Those were things that he used to be great at. He was great with his hands. He was great at building things. I probably told my dad a dozen times that I wish I could pick up the phone and call him to tell him what I was doing and ask him the correct way to do it. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I miss him so much!
Anyways, here are a few pictures of my new powder room :)
i am in love with my new painting from Ballard Designs
and i still want to get a different light fixture too.
