French Country Powder Rooms

Never underestimate the beauty that an antique buffet can bring to your bathroom. This Charles Faudree example is so wonderful with the marble top and pewter faucets. Also like the overlapping of the Venetian mirror over the wall mirror...I actually looked for an antique piece for my bathroom after pulling out the old pedestal sink. We found a dark oak mission buffet and dropped two smaller sinks in it. Turned out great! We have access to French buffets similiar to this and have one for sale at the moment.
This cabinet actually looks more built in but the colors and distress on it have made it look like a separate piece of furniture. Love it! Love the greens, creams, and caramels in this french powder room! The lanterns on either sides of the mirror are a great idea! We actually have just got in antiqued cream lanterns in pairs that would work perfectly for this idea!
