Powder Room Project Update


Welcome to the continuing saga of my powder room re-do. I have had the walls and ceiling done for a while, but products on order took their sweet time coming in.
Here is the light fixture.  I love how unpredictable and quirky it is.  It is the Chord Pendant from CB2. I was surprised how long the rope is, but it invites creative play  to see what configuration you can come up with for the length you want!  I almost always use a ceiling medallion with every light installation-it just makes it look like every detail is attended to.


I am waiting for my Wisteria  rustic oval mirror that has been on backorder for a month, praying it will come in on time!

My husband has made two wooden shelves for the walls, and I've got several rugs to try.  This fabulous eBay find is one I love, but too thick to close the door! Hate when that happens. I'd have to shave 2" off the door and that's not happening. I will have no problem using it somewhere in my home!


Next on my list is pulling it altogether and accessorizing! The fun stuff!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's progress this week!  Good luck with the final push!  The One Room Challenge and the Linking Party reveals are next Wednesday and Thursday! 
See you then!


Happy Halloween everyone!

  9. I love the light and the medallion you used. I hate when a rug is too high, too. And just like you, I would never cut the door down. I hope your mirror arrives. Good luck this week.

  17. That light is the coolest! I have the same problem with a rug in my bathroom. I just can't use one. You can always put a rug in there for the photos and then return it. We won't know you can't close the door and I won't tell anyone.

  20. I'm using a similar light fixture in my son's room; I like the idea of knotting the cord. Great rug, too bad it doesn't work where you need it to--isn't that always the way it goes when you're on a deadline?

  25. The pendant looks fabulous and love that little rug! I'm sure you'll find a great place for it. Isn't it crazy how such a small space can take such a long time? I re-did a bathroom last year and it seemed to take all winter!
