I took a typical 80’s bathroom and turned it into the powder room of my dreams!
I love old stuff, including bathrooms!
To bring this room out of the 80s and into the 30s, I went with black and white tiles and a claw foot porcelain tub.
I’m in love!
Wait until you see the before photos.
I call it a powder room because it’s our main floor bathroom off the kitchen even though I realize a powder room doesn’t contain a bathtub and a clawfoot tub for that matter!
But I still think it’s a lovely name for this bathroom.
This is the before picture of how it looked like when we bought our house.
Yikes! It was a complete 80’s disaster!
Here it is after:
Typical 80s tub shower combo. Nothing to like here and nothing to salvage.
My beautiful vintage clawfoot tub.
It even had faux wood linoleum! Wow. I have no words.
So we had the bathroom gutted right down to the studs.
And drywalled the walls.
We had crown moulding added, beadboard with trim, and black and white tiles.
So obviously I’m not a modern decor girl. I wanted it to seem like this was the way it was when the house was built so I carefully chose decor that would mirror the style of the house.
Here is a close-up of some framed artwork. I bought them on Etsy years ago but I can’t find the artist anymore. They compliment the vintage feel of the powder room.
I love vintage and nothing is more vintage than robin egg’s blue. It’s called Limelight from Behr and it’s the perfect color to compliment the powder room!
So there you have the little tour of my before and after pictures of my powder room.
