I posted before about the tiniest powder room in the world and the stencil that I thought would be a breeze to put up. I wanted wallpaper, but no. Wallpaper is expensive and I have a million things that need to be bought for the house like toilets, for instance. I'll save money by doing a stencil, I thought. Oh if I could only go back in time. I would have paid top dollar for wallpaper now that I know the hell that is putting up a stencil. In general stencils applied to one wall are tedious but do-able. Something I've learned that I'm passing on to anyone who will listen. INTRICATE STENCILS ARE NOT MEANT TO GO AROUND CORNERS. PERIOD. Anyone who tells you differently is not of this world...or delusional. I ended up cutting a lot of the stencil and I did A LOT of hand painting it. You know how many coats of white it takes to cover a dark gray wall? A sh!t ton, that's how much. But the good news is that I finished it, and it does look rather good if I do say so myself. In addition the toilet and sink are also in.

|Ignore the missing vent cover on the floor...oops!|
Can you believe how teeny tiny everything is? It's like a bathroom for a gnome. When you sit on the toilet and shut the door the only thing you can see is the door which seems as though it's mere inches from your nose.
The room is still not quite done though and here's what I'm thinking. I really want a bit of color in here since it's all gray and white, and the color I'm thinking of is coral. I found a mirror at a consignment store for $25 which I'm going to paint a coral color and I'd like to do some kind of a coral window shade. Here's the mirror.
I also need to address where I'm going to put a hand towel, and most importantly some soap. No room on that sink for anything. So that's it for now until the final reveal of my wee chinoiserie powder room. At the rate I'm going don't expect anything in the near future;)
