If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to update your home’s powder room, consider adding a new vanity and artwork. These two simple changes can transform the look and feel of the space, creating a fresh and inviting atmosphere.

Start by assessing your current powder room. Is the space lacking character or personality? Could it use a little sprucing up? If so, a new vanity and artwork can help. This is our 4th vanity update since owning the home, going on 21 years now, but let’s take a step back to show you where it started.

Before- Powder Room Refresh

Not the best picture, but this is our second vanity. As you can see there is not much storage.

I Installed Tongue and Groove. Lowes sold me an entire pallet for $96 because they wanted to get rid of it. It was enough to do this bathroom and sell the rest for $100.

I painted the T&G White and we turned a vintage dresser into a vanity with a vessel sink. Looking back at this picture I do love the Cottage feel it has. You can check out the original post here

So why the change? If you have ever owned an antique dresser then you know the drawers are difficult to open, not to mention the space we lost in order to accommodate the plumbing. I tried all the tips and tricks to get the drawers to slide better and none of them worked for me. Since I am up early, this is the bathroom I get ready in every day, and needed a vanity that would hold all of my stuff.

I saw this artwork in another creator’s dining room and knew I needed to find a way to add it to my home. However, her’s was at a hefty price tag but also includes the frame.

I searched for weeks to find a similar frame. Finally, I found this one from Custom Frame Shop and ordered four in the 18″ x 30″ size. YOU NEED TO PUT THESE TOGETHER!!!. They had a promotion so I spent $251.58, below is my order summary. I can say that it was very difficult to put them together. These are thin frames and we did split the wood in a couple of corners. Now I could have ordered glass or acrylic from them (and probably should have). I went to my local Ben Franklin Craft and Frame store and had them cut the acrylic and foam backing for the frame. When all was said and done I spent $550.00 total for the four. Not too bad considering the original is $495 for one.

The mirror is the same, I just spray-painted it black. Unfortunately, it is no longer available from World Market
