Farmhouse Design Series-Powder Room

It’s time for another Farmhouse Design Series! Today I’m sharing the Powder Room! The farmhouse renovation is moving right along! So far, I’ve shared our exciting news, farmhouse renovation-before, the farmhouse renovation 1 and the farmhouse renovation 2, the kitchen design, and how to add historic charm to a space.

In my last post I mentioned some elements we were using to add historic charm to the powder room and other rooms in the “new” part of the farmhouse. Today I’m pulling together the elements of the powder room to give you a sneak peek at the design for that space.

If you remember…this room used to be part of the old laundry room, but now we changed the entrance from the back of the house by moving the doorway into the family room. This created a hallway with the powder room just before you get to the family room.

Remember the bathroom used to be tucked in the back corner of the kitchen. Now it’s away from the kitchen and easily accessible from the family room and office. That’s great, because it’s the only bathroom downstairs now!

To-Do List

Here are some of the projects we are tackling in this room:

  1. Convert the antique wash stand into a vanity
  2. Paint the vanity
  3. Clean up the existing chandelier and hang it in the center of the room
  4. Paint the walls blue
  5. Stencil the walls
  6. Add trim to match the other rooms
  7. Add crown molding

Update on the to-do list:

  1. Convert the antique wash stand into a vanity
  2. Paint the vanity
  3. Clean up the existing chandelier and hang it in the center of the room
  4. Paint the walls blue 
  5.  Stencil to the walls
  6. Add trim to match the other rooms 
  7. Add crown molding

So far the trim is in place, the walls are painted, and we have added the stencil to the walls!

An antique wash stand has been converted into a vanity by cutting out sections of the drawers and making an opening in the back to allow for plumbing. Also, holes were cut for the sink drain and faucet.

The wash stand also received a fresh coat of paint! We started with a light blue color and then went over it with a light cream color and sanded some the cream away on the edges, details, and knobs. We put polyacrylic on the entire wash stand, with extra layers on top to protect it.

The Poppy 4 Piece Stencil Kit from Cutting Edge Stencils was used on the powder room. I’ll give you a run down on the process when I show you the finished room!

This room is so close to being finished and I can’t wait to see all of the pieces come together!
