Powder Room Color Change


My powder room was longing for a little change.  The Shabby-Beachy look I was going for a few years ago was looking a little pale and dreary. 

Gray Marble Countertop

I got my inspiration for my new fabric choice from something that was there all along...the marble counter top.  I've always loved the antique English vanity that the previous owners had installed, and I thought why don't I go with that beautiful charcoal and white color scheme that I love.      

new faux roman shade

I found the fabric I had in mind at Z-Gallery in a curtain panel they have in stock.  I simply shortened the curtain, and put in two pleats to have it mimic a roman shade.  It was a fast and easy project, and perfect for me to do in about an hour. 

The sea shell print is from our church rummage sale.
It also has the right shade of gray in it.
I had so much fabric left over from the panel that I even made a cute accent pillow for another room.  I found a charcoal gray nubby rug at Marshall's that is cozy and the perfect color for the room.  Now I'm on the hunt for some beautiful guest towels.  Wish me luck!
