We just gave our tiny powder room another little makeover. And I mean LITTLE makeover, as in paint and accessories. Not the usual “blogger makeover” that probably involves power tools. At one time I planned to totally redo with with new tile and pedestal sink and all, but it ended up just not being in the budget at the time. And, it still isn’t in the budget. Wah wah wah.
Soooooo, we are not getting a new sink.
Not getting a new faucet.
Not getting new lights (for awhile any way).
Not putting up a wood ceiling. At least yet, right?
I waited four years for my new more charming kitchen, I can wait a bit longer for more charming bathrooms.
But, because I do like to make the best of what we’ve got, we did repaint the powder room a few weeks ago and have put up a few new accessories. It looks cute and fresh and cottagey and ready for guests. It really doesn’t take much to update a bathroom, even if you can’t change all the tile and sinks and faucets! Sometimes a few simple changes are enough.
Paint and accessories really can do wonders, as you know, and they can be quite affordable if you shop for accessories at second hand shops. I’ve been enjoying a local flea market lately and finding some cute things!
I’ll show you how my own little powder room update turned out (with the before and afters of its two makeovers since we’ve lived here!) as soon as my new bathroom rug comes, which should be this week!

Do you love cottage style bathrooms as much as I do?
I really LOVE a charming bathroom.
