Featured Customer | Schoolhouse Gooseneck Light Offers Vintage Character

But Natalie, from My Vintage Porch, had big, beautiful ideas for her small powder room space. “This is a room we wanted to renovate for quite some time, but we needed budget-friendly ideas,” Natalie says. “This space had only builder-grade touches, and we wanted to add more character.” Natalie covered over the tired, striped walls with shiplap and replaced the pedestal sink with, believe it or not, an old record cabinet! ...
