This room originally consisted of a pedestal sink (which had a crack in the bowl) along with a moulded plastic toilet paper dispenser and a flat, square mirror.
It has all been upgraded. First I added the floral 'pink' wallpaper. It was not a popular choice in my household originally. It has now grown on everyone.
I purchased the cherry wood cabinet, with a matching mirror, at an outlet store. I decided on the cherry colour because our kitchen cabinets, on the same level, are also cherry stained. I liked that the wood tones flowed from one room to the other.
The taps were purchased separately and I love their old-fashioned styling.
I chose to use a different mirror then the one that came with the vanity. I don't always like using matched sets.
Then I purchased new lighting. Something more suitable. I don't know if you can make out the detail but they are pineapple shaped. The pineapple symbol represents 'hospitality' which was why I selected this fixture.
And then the fun began - accessorising my new powder room. This sign was purchased from Ebay.
My Victorian shadow box. Inside is an antique handkerchief along with a doily!
I hung a handmade butterfly bracelet (a gift from a very dear friend) on my soap dispenser. It really jazzes up the plain, ceramic.
A quaint, metal garden shelf displays one of my more precious collections. My Grandmother's Johnson Bros. wash set. My Mother recently gave me these 3 pieces of the original set.
My antique, hand-painted sap bucket, now used as my garbage can. This was another Ebay purchase.
And a pretty tasseled hand towel.
Wouldn't this tablecloth look gorgeous, adorning your festive table during your Thanksgiving dinner? ( I own the same one)
How about these sweet little turkeys; an adorable addition to your table.
