~A Powder Room Makeover Reveal~


Although I posted the makeover, Thursday April 16th, I decided to use it as my Metamorphosis Monday contribution, for this week. Visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, each Monday, for makeovers around blogland.

powder21 ~Condo Entry~

Over the winter we painted the living room, kitchen and entry, of our condo at Lake of the Ozarks. The darker color is Sherwin Williams Mink. The lighter is SW Snowflake. There was plenty of leftover paint, so the little wheels in my head began to spin.

While I still liked the powder room, I was ready for a change. The leftover paint gave me the perfect opportunity for a makeover of the powder room, here at home.

The difference is like night and day. We both like it very much! The feel of the room is more casual.

I added a bit of blue to play off the dining room. There are birds and garden style accessories, to flow with the living room.

I’m very pleased with this little makeover.
