Powder Room Room…

Do you know what the problem is with pedestal sinks? They’re very nice, sure, but there is no room on them. None. You can maybe fit some soap on there, but nothing else…

Also, why does a powder room have a towel rod? I can’t help you understand this.

Anyways, We painted it suede gray.

And, shocker, we took that towel rod down. We also took down the hand towel ring thingy. It was not offensive, but I NEED to have paper guest towels in addition to my regular towel. It’s a germ thing…

The decor needs some help, because I have no idea what to do with the end of Summer. I just want it to be Fall.

But isn’t it better with the towel rod down?
The burlap canvas I painted with white paint, then wrote on it with a sharpie.

This will probably not be it’s final resting place, but it works for now.

Since we needed a space for my paper guest towels, and a pretty hand towel, and since these things will in no way fit on the pedestal sink, I needed a little shelf.
But I couldn’t have some normal boring shelf, and everything I found was too small or too big.

So this is what I came up with. We had some leftover wood that I cut to the size I wanted…

Then I hit the plumbing section at Home Depot, and for eleven dollars, this is what I came away with.
I painted it all black, of course.

I beat up my wood, and stained it. It seemed weird to have smooth, sanded wood with plumbing parts. Rustic was better.

It is the perfect size for guest towels, and the perfect height for the kids to reach the towel. I kind of love it…

    Oh that is such an brilliant idea. Hah, I detest towel rails, detest them and once this house became mine I took it out of the loo too.
