Powder Room

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm back today to show you our little downstairs powder room. It's teeny weeny too. This is not a grand house, kinda simple as is this little bathroom, but we like it.
 Look at this snap and then I want to show you how it looked when we bought the house.
 See that 1980s wallpaper? Well, it was a complete booger and did not want to come off the walls. Our painter brought some stuff and sprayed on it and tried again to get it off. It was stuck! Needless to say, he continued to work on the other rooms and then cam back to this one last. The mirror was old and lots of the mirroring was coming off around the edges and the hollywood lights over the mirror were just too bright!
 After the wallpaper finally was all gone, the room was painted Biscuit by Sherwin Williams. Most of the rooms are painted this nice yummy color. All of the doors, window trims and baseboards were just wood and dark so that got a good white washing. We don't get a lot of natural sunlight inside because we have so so many trees. We needed to make the inside as bright as we could.
 We took the large damaged mirror down and bought this cute little round one from Lowes. I think it fits the space so much better.
This is a horrible snap and I tried to fix it better for you to see, so excuse it, but...you can see the mirror and the beveled edge and the new light fixture we bought also from Lowes. The owners had put in this cute little faucet and we left it.
 Also the vanity was nice as well as the cabinet top with the sink included in the cut.
 I know, I'm not really good at decorating bathrooms. I kinda go simple so it's easy to clean. I probably need something like a little shelf to hang under the red wreath. Suggestions?
The little curtains were used in my old kitchen in our Texas home and the plates just go so well with them, they were poked up on the wall. They were in the kitchen too! ;) I just love red and have to have some around me and since this is the most visited bathroom I get to see my red a lot! :) 
Thanks for popping in and be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Lady In  Red

 I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, give'em half a chance
And I've never seen that dress you're wearing
Or that highlights in your hair that catch your eyes, I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, it's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight
I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled it took my breath away
And I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, it's where I wanna be
Well I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never forget the way you look tonight
I never will forget the way you look tonight
The lady in red, my lady in red
My lady in red, my lady in red
I love you
