Powder Room Complete…BOOYA!!!

Ok, so most of you have seen the majority of my powder room though my posts on my herringbone floor and on my brushstrokes art.  But I just finally finished my window treatment and I figured it was time to get the whole room and some sources up on the blog.  

Here is a list of the steps/work we did on the Powder Room Remodel.  The whole room was completed on a very tight budget (and time line), so my dad and I did everything ourselves – we were the demo, the contractors, the plumbers and the electricians!  

**Where possible I added links to some of the products we purchased…just in case anyone wants to close and personal with some of the items.

  • Removed wall paper (just used fabric softener and it pealed off, I got lucky!)
  • Primed the room – Zinnser 123 latex Primer(previous owners used oil paint)
  • Painted Every Inch – Top Half; Hale Navy Benjamin Moore.  Bottom Half; Mountain Peak Benjamin Moore
  • Demoed everything – and kept nothing – it felt so good
  • Added new sub flooring
  • Tiled floor – read about it here
  • Installed a new toilet 
  • Installed a new shaker cabinet & granite counter tops (purchased from Pius in Sodo)
  • Pluming – a few minor adjustments to the alignment of pipes and my Dad rocked this one out.  
  • Installed new faucet & drain, (I drank a beer while Dad did the hard work)

Added accessories: 

Well I hope you enjoy this room as much as I do.  My Dad and I worked HARD on this project.  We definitely bite off a lot, but we nailed it and every time I step in there I just get so happy.   Happy because I love how it looks, Happy I saved major Benjamins making this a DIY project and happy I got to spend so much time with my Dad!

One final shot, Now Put a Fork in It this room is DONE!   Boomshakalaka!!!
