Before & After: A Powder Room with Panache

Before & After: A Powder Room with Panache

We love a good Before & After here at Apartment Therapy, especially one that's achieved on a shoestring budget. In its before state, this little powder room couldn't be more boring, from dingy white walls to builder-grade oak cabinet. HGTV Design Star alum NataLee Callahan gave it a major makeover on a budget of less than $100.

NataLee started by adding beadboard wallpaper — which is really inexpensive and available at most hardware stores — below the existing chair rail. Next, she painted large chocolate brown stripes above the beadboard, and swapped out the standard flat mirror for a cool circular one she scored for $7 at a swap meet. Finally, she painted the vanity and mirror green and accented another wall in eye-popping turquoise.
