I spent most of yesterday giving our small downstairs bathroom a makeover. It’s a great little bathroom, but it needed some freshening up. Last week we had a new toilet installed that matches the sink and I figured it was a great time for some paint and other little new touches. I had planned on taking half the day yesterday to paint and replace a light fixture. The light fixture replacement alone ended up taking almost three hours (including a trip to the hardware store). Isn’t that the way home projects always go? 🙂
I did get the painting finished before dinner last night and this morning I’ve been finishing up the trim. It needed a fresh coat of white and boy does it make a difference! I’ll be honest- I sat in the bathroom for a few minutes enjoying how pretty and fresh it looks! I sure do love a makeover. I still have a couple more things to do before I reveal the finished room (hopefully by the end of the week!). For now, I’ll share some befores:
I love the cabinet above the toilet, and the sink is very pretty, too. I replaced the mirror recently with one we had above our fireplace at the old house. The beige was okay, but our entire house is that color and I was ready for something different.
Here is an idea of what it will all look like in the end! I’m painting the walls Light French Gray by Sherwin Williams and I LOVE it. Love. I can’t wait to get this finished up and share the after pictures!
