Some mornings I wake up with this crazy need to update or redecorate a room.  I know that if I hold off and say do something productive… like laundry I just will go crazy until I tackle the room :).  This happened to me Tuesday morning with our Powder Room. I gave our half bathroom a quick and cheap refresh in just a few hours for less than $1.

A while back I had taken down the balloon shade in our powder room because the pattern and colors of the shade we no longer my taste and just made me unhappy.  I also wanted more natural light to brighten our small bathroom.  If you are curious what our previous curtain looked like you can see that here.

Well… ever since I took it down Jason has been on my case to get a new shade for the powder room because he was concerned that guests would want a little more privacy.  (Hmmm…)

I wasn’t convinced that there were people lining up outside of the window waiting to catch an unsuspecting person from using our restroom but I was willing to bring back a window covering since he was pretty adamant about it :).

Using a green toile fabric I had bought over 16 years ago (fabric hoarder alert) I made a new balloon shade for it.  Details coming to blog soon on how I made it but it was really fun to dust off my old sewing machine.

The lighter fabric definitely brightens up our half bath with giving some need privacy which is important to my husband.

Because of the green in the fabric of the window shade I wanted to bring more pops of green into our powder room.  The first thing I did was make a run to AC Moore for some green paint.

I took down the old bulky mirror that was hanging over our sink and decided to replace it with a smaller mirror that was formally in our boys bathroom.   I painted the small oval mirror a vintage looking minty green.

For 88 cents this bayberry acrylic paint was definitely a steal!

I shopped the house for the rest of the accessories in our powder room.

I really had no idea how many green things I had until I started looking for them :).  It’s official, I must like the color green!

I still love the wooden countertops we added a few years back and added a vintage box to hold all those important bathroom necessities like tissues and toilet paper.

I also a few vintage books and magazines to the room.

For some strange reason this seems to be the most popular restroom in our home and I have no idea way?!!!  I figure if they are going to spend so much time in there they might as well be reading :).

Because it’s Fall, our powder room refresh wouldn’t be complete with a white pumpkin!

I am pretty excited about how our powder room turned out and for less than a dollar it was totally worth it.  Watch out, I already have my sights on the next room I want to redecorate and renovate :).
