DIY Powder Room Makeover | Everyday Enchanting - A small, dark powder room gets an update with board & batten, Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray paint, a tile border, a DIY vanity, and a beadboard ceiling. After a couple of weeks of trying to find time for those pesky “finishing touches”, I finally give you… our DIY Powder Room Makeover! This project has been a year in the making, I went crazy and primed over the orange/gold walls last spring. This project was kind of pushed aside to finish the kitchen, which ended up being a good thing- we went in a completely different direction from our original plan! InstagramCollage If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may have seen some fun sneak peeks of  the room- and of me doing my first solo tiling project. If not… what are you waiting for?! ;) I conquered the tile saw, and I am now a little obsessed. I’m looking for things to tile… I know, you probably want me to just get to the photos already! Here’s a side by side before & after. The terra-cotta colored floor tile was cracked, and the vanity was rotting from an old leak. We ripped out the baseboard heater, so the trim needed replacing. The paint color was a little too bold for my tastes. The light fixture was dated, and the room originally had gold/chrome combo accessories which I removed before this photo was taken.

We added a board and batten treatment (painted BM Simply White with the paint sprayer), with a tile border. The walls are painted Benjamin Moore’s Wickham Gray, which I love. Depending on the light it can be gray, blue, or green- which is so nice! The basket on the back of the toilet is from Homegoods. The toilet paper holder and candles are from Target.

I found the basket (almost the same dimensions of the Newport Basket, but 1/4 the price!) last week at Homegoods. The apothecary jar and white pitcher are also from Homegoods, but were purchased a long time ago. The pivoting mirror is from Lowes, and the towel ring is from Target.

This beautiful painting provided inspiration for the whole room. It was done by my grandfather (who has a gallery in Sanbornville, NH) of the beach in Ogunquit, Maine that he and my Gramma used to bring us to when we were little. I absolutely love Ogunquit, and our beach trips were such fun memories. I also happen to love the soft colors of this painting, so I tried to carry them out through the room without making it too coastal. I have many of my grandfather’s paintings throughout my house- and you can catch a peek of them in the tour of our former home.  I will definitely be sharing more in this house, as they play a major role in our decor!

Another view of the vanity. I learned the challenges of photographing a very small room during this project. The room measures 5’x7′. You can read about the building of the vanity here!

This shelf was one of the shelves from our breakfast nook that was displaced by our DIY cafe shelves. I love it here! I used items I had on hand to decorate it, but I am on the hunt for some colorful antique bottles. DIY Powder Room Makeover | Everyday Enchanting - A small, dark powder room gets an update with board & batten, Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray paint, a tile border, a DIY vanity, and a beadboard ceiling. This is our beadboard ceiling treatment. This room had the same seashell textured ceiling that the rest of the house has. I’ve mentioned before that it absorbs a lot of light and never looks quite clean. This beadboard ceiling solved this issue in this particular room, and we love how reflective it is! We aren’t sure that we will be doing beadboard in every room, although I think it works well for the bathrooms (I’m thinking white planked ceilings in the larger rooms.) You can read a how-to on how we made this ceiling here!

It was a lucky happenstance that the forsythia in our yard started to bloom just as I needed fresh flowers for these photos. I think it looks perfect in this room! This was exactly what I imagined, and I love seeing it pulled together.

Who would have thought that my new favorite room would be the smallest in our home? :) Of course, I say that every time we do a remodel. Believe it or not, we’ve already got a few new projects in the works! I will be sharing the rest of the tutorials for this project this week, and then I will be sharing some inspiration for the other projects we’ve been talking about!

    • Hi Barb! Thank you :) The tile is from Home Depot- It’s called Arctic Storm. It’s made from honed marble so it has a really nice matte texture in person. They also carried it in store, so that was perfect. Hope that helps!!

  17. This is such a gorgeous transformation! I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with our 1/2 bath (the smallest room in our house too), and I think you’ve given me some great ideas. I love how you put the tiles in the board and batten. So pretty!

  18. LOVE! What a stunning makeover! I love the board and batten and the mosaic tile used. I have been wanting to do this in my powder bath for a while. Yours is very beautiful! That ceiling is dreamy! lol I have not done a lot of molding / trim work, but after seeing your bathroom, I sure want to. :D Fantastic job!

  19. Nina, your bathroom looks amazing! We used a similar floor tile in our bathrooms and I love it! I did our powder room floor myself too :) Those 12×24 tiles are no joke to install! I also really love the Benjamin Moore Wickham Gray in here and would love to feature this on my paint color blog, Involving Color. Let me know if you’re interested!

    • Hi Jena! I would absolutely love to be featured on your blog, thank you so much! :) And yes, those floor tiles were something- I figured it would be easier with the larger tiles- apparently not!

  20. I just came across your blog tonight and I love your powder room makeover! Especially the pottery barn vanity you built. Will you be doing a tutorial on it in the near future? I also love the finish on it and would love to know how to achieve that myself! I’m now a subscriber to your blog!

    • Hi Tami! Welcome!! So excited to have you as a new reader :) My very next post will be about the vanity- either this evening or tomorrow!
