Powder Room Wrap Up

First off, let me say that it is really difficult to photograph this room while standing inside the room.  So most of the pictures you see here were taken while standing on the deck outside the bathroom window or from a ladder on the porch with my upper body leaning through the pantry window.  Just so you understand it was not from lack of effort on my part that the pictures are not as good as I would like them to be.

I may add some kind of crowning piece at the very top of these mirrors.  It's actually ok without anything but if just the right thing comes along, that's where it's going.

There is a small blank wall to the left of the lamp.  Again, it's really ok as is but a small framed piece of art could work there.

I had something in mind for the wall above the toliet but it just didn't work out.  I don't really want to cover the wallpaper completely on this wall so I'm on the lookout for this area too.  I won't do all three spots.  Most likely I'll find something for this space.

This is the view with the door closed.  The light spot in the center of the door is actually the bathroom window reflecting in the glass of the door. 

And this completes the four corners of the long awaited powder room.  It was a long time getting here but I am so glad I did it.

In case you are curious about the completion of the pantry, I'll fill you in on that.  As you know the secretary takes up one small wall and other wall is the shelf cabinet.

The glass shelves are in and everything is completed except the two full length glass doors.

This is because I am having a little trouble with the design.  They are very tall doors and there is some question about warping.  I'm confident we will find a solution but this is where we stand now.
PS:  That little piece of dentil molding at the top is the one part of the original butler's cabinet I salvaged and used here.  The rest of the salvaged cabinet was installed in the basement. (that saga you will find here)

As you can see, this is handy storage at the bottom of the basement stairs for the overflow.

I had to chose between lighting up the inside of the cabinet and taking a picture of light bulb reflections.  There was not much of a compromise to be had.

I think that wraps up the powder room/pantry remodel.  There are more projects in the works and I will be posting on those next.  Thanks for taking the journey with me on this project.  Knowing you are keeping track of the progress keeps me motivated.  And, of course, I love hearing your comments and suggestions.
