One of a Kind Ceiling and other Changes

Long time ago when I just moved to my new house, one of the rooms that I couldn't wait to transform was this little powder room.

It's so small, only 90" x 32".  It can only accommodate the lavatory (to one side of that door), and a small sink (to the other side).

This is how it looks now when the door is open and you just enter the main door!

At that time I wanted to create drama. I was loving all kind of strong colors. Being this, such a small room I decided to go bold with its decor.

How about a textured golden ceiling and red walls??

Yes!! That's what I did. :)
All plain white walls and ceiling were no more.  I also replaced a towel bar for a gallery of pictures from a Paris calendar.

A Paintable Textured Wallcovering with a gold leaf kit and crown molding transformed the ceiling from blah, to aha!

Check the corners on the crown molding. My FIRST attempt to install crown molding!
Those corners remind me how much I failed that first time. :/
After trying all day long, I decided to go and buy those corners instead of wasting the molding, and money.

Well, that was like 9 years ago.  The golden ceiling and red walls stayed for quite long. Two years ago I was ready for change.
I went back to white and I really love how it looks with all that texture!

That back wall was painted the same color as the rest of the others rooms, SW -Requisite Gray.  I still love the Paris gallery wall. ;)

On that small wall behind the jhon I installed those cubes that I found at a thrift store.

But, this is not a reveal.  Right there is where my latest problem occurred.

When I was installing a shelf in the closet right next to that right wall, the vibration from the hammering made a bottle fall from the top cube right inside the jhon! >:(
It got damaged!!  I need to go toilet shopping. Not fun.

To the other end of the room is the pedestal sink and mirror, and that's it.  Oh, wait...  Can you see what the arrow is pointing at?? Well, it's a big hole that little Matt created when pulling the towel from the ring. :s

Overall I like this room.  It needs storage solutions though,  new toilet, perhaps a new mirror and a new light.

Of course, installing the ring for the towel is a project that little Mat is going to help me with.  That would stop him from using the towel as a swing.

New floating shelves were built to replace the storage cubes, click HERE for the tutorial.

And changing the toilet was easier than I thought. Click HERE for some tips on how to do that!
