Powder Room De-Peachificiation

I haven’t shared a good de-peaching of a room in my house in a quite a while,
and thought you might enjoy this one! 
We have a powder room right off our kitchen that also doubles as the laundry room.
{Can someone please tell me who on earth dreamed up the idea to put a laundry room,
where all the stinky clothes end up, in a room that will be used by guests in your home???? Have mercy!}
When we renovate our kitchen someday, we’ll probably rework this bathroom/laundry room space, so I didn’t want to spend a lot of money fixing it up now but just make some cosmetic changes for the time being.
This is what the bathroom looked like at our inspection.
Lotsa peach….it was the Peach Pit after all!
{If you’re new here, the house we bought last July was covered in peach paint,
paired with lots of orangey stained woodwork – oh so attractive!}
The knobs where kind of kitschy-cute but not my thing.
I am thankful for that off-white counter and sink that I had to work with.
A whole lot of my favorite Ben Moore Muslin paint on the walls, black for the vanity, and white semi-gloss for the window and doors gave the space a whole new feel, in addition to a new mirror and knobs.
Here she is before:
and after:

 The laundry-room bi-fold doors were beastly:

but after Kilz primer and a couple coats of paint they just blend into the background.

I have a thing for maps. I used colorful mattes and a roman shade from PB to bring some fun color into an otherwise neutral space. {This topic is a whole other blog post!}

Are you jealous about that awesome faucet below featuring oak knobs?? You know you are!
My brother is a plumber and has a laundry list about
of items we need for this new house of ours.
A nickel faucet for this bathroom is at the top of the list!
What a difference to paint the vanity black! The previous owner’s dogs had chewed the bottom of the vanity (along with the kitchen cabinets….weren’t they sweet little things??) but planing and sanding the cabinet and then using black paint really disguised it’s poor condition.

A big mirror from Homegoods reflects the light from the window and my bleeding heart flowers that I brought in from the garden. (By the way, they are so pretty, but do not smell good!) 

One more room successfully de-peached!

Thanks for visiting….hope you’re having a splendid day!

what a great transformation! It's amazing what a little paint can do. PS- the shape of your vanity is awesome. :)
