    What a lovely new powder room. You were so wise to keep on until you had the color you wanted on the wood and it looks great.

      Nancy, thanks so much for your sweet comments about our powder room! It was hard to make the decision to change the counter after all the hard work that we had done but we are so much happier with the result!!! Have a great weekend and take care!, Tara

    Your powder room looks so pretty!! Love seeing rooms redone by just making a few changes that make such a huge difference. BTW, your entire house is beautiful. It’s my dream to own a farmhouse type home someday. Love following all the changes you are making.

      Hi Bess! Thanks so much for following along! When it asks for your URL it’s asking if you have a website that you want to link back to. (it’s optional:)

    LOVE your powder room….and I see you have “made friends” with the red from outside! The valance in the bath ties in so nicely as you walk into the foyer. A touch of red here and there goes a long way! BTW. Love the counter top…the change is so warm and homey! The first floor bath is always the most used bath in the house. There’s a lot to say about your ideas for the room, most importantly…IT LOOKS GREAT!

      Hi Karen! Ha yes I have been “making friends” with it. Would you believe I have been checking Craigslist for a red rug for the living room:)? I have a feeling that there will be even more red here in the future. Thanks so much for your sweet comments about my counter tops and our powder room. I appreciate your following along so much. Have a great weekend and take care!

  6. Hi Tara…..your powder room is adorable. I love that little window. Nice job on everything, the wooden counter top looks great with the sink.

    How water repellent is this surface? Did you caulk around the sink to keep water from seeping under it? The counter looks lovely by the way….

      Hi Jennifer! Thank you so much for your sweet comments about our powder room. We are only a few weeks in to our new wood counter tops but I have already come in to the counter top splashed with water more than a few times (we have 4 kids:) and the water wipes right off with no problems. We did put 4 coats of polyurethane on it 4 times so it is similar to splashing water on hardwood floors. We also used clear chalk around the sink and where the back splash meets the counter tops. Hope this answered your questions and thank you for taking the time to stop by and comment! Have a great holiday weekend and take care!

      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments about our bathroom Kristin! We bought the sink at Ikea and we bought the faucet on Amazon. I have a link in this post to the exact faucet we bought from Amazon. Take care, Tara
