The supplies have been put away. The mess is all cleaned up. The accessories have been purchased. And order in the house has been restored. Our powder room renovation is officially— and finally—finished.
It took much longer than expected, but I'm so happy with the results. Especially since the vision I had in my mind's eye turned out even better in reality. (That certainly isn't always the case!)
This wasn't a "fun" project but it was certainly satisfying. And besides saving a lot of money by going DIY, I got some good spiritual insights in the process. Maybe I'll write about them one of these days—perhaps while sitting on the floor of bathroom. As it is, I stop in many times a day to enjoy the ambiance. (Now instead of looking for me at my computer, my kids first check the bathroom! :-)
I thought I'd share the results so you can see for yourself. (The room is so small and hard to photograph but hopefully you'll get the idea.) Or stop by for a visit and see for yourself.
Remember the before:
Here's the after:
The final touch will be framed pictures from our backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon. Then it will truly be complete.
