Quick Bathroom Update – Before & After

We went up to the Land of Giant Evergreens & Lupine, a.k.a. Seattle, to see my Sweet Mama and help her out with her honey do list (before it got any longer). The trips was quick, but I got to see my Mom, a few friends I haven’t seen in way too long, and my longtime BFF; all was right in my world again.

The first project on my list was a quick update to the bathroom vanity / cabinet. After trip one to the hardware store, I was able to get started. I took the doors and the hardware of the cabinet off, sanded everything down, and started painting. What should have been a two hour job, seemed to take me forever. I cannot for the life of me figure out why!

The bathroom overall is really cute, but the oak colored vanity / cabinet was hideous. No more! Check out the before and after. I set my alarm for 7 am on Sunday, it didn’t go off, so all the pictures and organizing I had planned to do was out the window cause we had a plane to catch. I do remember we used a flat light gray paint, with a wax past finish, and flat black spray paint for the hardware.

After painting the cabinet a light gray, the hardware black, and had no choice but to then paint the base boards. Oak colored base boards no longer fit.

I love how much lighter the bathroom looks.

      Marilyn, p.s. we tried to match the color to the towel rack as much as we could. You have to get over to Whimsical Whites – it may be a rumor, but I think they’re closing their store sometime in the next couple months. I know you would love their furniture!! It’s the white cottage off of (256?) on the way to my first house.
