A Half-Bath Gets a Cottage-Style Makeover

by hookedonhouses on August 6, 2013


This morning I showed you Sarah’s half-bath, and now I have another blogger’s inspiring bathroom makeover for you to check out. Layla set out to give her small, dark powder room some bright and cheery cottage style with fun details like this bird wallpaper. Here’s how it looked before…


Nothing wrong with it, really, but it was dark and plain and wasn’t really her style. Thanks to some blue paneling on the walls and a new (old) vanity, it has a lot more character now:

I love everything about it, from the new tile to the light fixture. So pretty! Visit The Lettered Cottage for all the photos and details. Then come back tomorrow for Day 3 of “Before & After Week” because I have a beach house remodel to show you!

Lovely! I am pretty much head over heels in love with nice wooden paneling these days….so pretty and fresh! Every time I see birds now, I think of Portlandia “Put a bird on it…” Anyone else?

Yes! I always think of that, too. Ha. :)

Your blog is a Joy! One can enjoy the present post, and then go visiting past posts here… It’s like following a trail of cookie crumbs, through the woods. :-)

Thank you!

L.o.v.e. The Lettered Cottage! I don’t recall if I found them through Hooked on Houses or Young House Love. I’m pretty sure I found the latter because of you though. Julia, you’ve introduced me to so many great house blogs! Oh, and this makeover was delish!
