Just before the housewarming party began, we finished the powder room.

I picked up this small cabinet from Target on clearance. While I had originally intended to have a more decorative shelving unit above the toilet, this cabinet was the perfect size for the scale of the room – and I can’t resist a sale.

With the addition of a few pieces of hardware and linens, the bathroom was totally ready for guests…

Or so I thought. Obviously, thanks to the party we had an increased amount of traffic in this tiny room – which meant there was an increased amount of flushing. I suppose this was a blessing in disguise because it caused us to notice a tiny trickle on the floor.

I’m not sure what the cause is yet, but this discovery caused an instant hault to the powder room’s use until we figure it out. Prolonged moisture like this could lead to a completely ruined floor, so it was best we let our guests use the other two working bathrooms instead.

Hopefully, we’ll find the cause quickly and be able to fix it without much trouble. We suspect that it could be a faulty wax ring – only $5 to replace, so let’s hope that’s it!

  1. You could put a glass shelf or 2 under the cabinet. The proportion is way too small.
    Bet the leak is nothing big!

  2. With the addition of artwork and a mirror (both of which I'm still hunting down), I think putting more shelving in this small room would be a little too busy. Great suggestion though!

  3. I've been following you for a while and I like it just the way it is… It is fabush!! Great palette to add different color choices thru out the year. Great Job! =) Stop by and follow me and tell me what you think of my changes, I'd love to hear your suggestions and tips =)

  4. Oh no! Hopefully that leak is nothing big. The powder room looks great! About 1,0000x better than it was before. :) I love how fresh and clean it is!
