Our Bathroom Makeover
This is our bathroom BEFORE! As you can see, it was pretty awful. We have lived with it for the past 2 1/2 years since we moved in. It had gold fixtures and a hunter green countertop and sink. The cabinets were a blonde wood color. I was so tired of seeing it, I decided it just had to go!
We were working in a pretty tight budget. We completed the whole bathroom for about $700.00. Here is the finished Bathroom!
We replaced the sink, fixtures, mirror,lighting, and flooring (Vinyl tile). We painted the walls a pretty blue green. Then we sanded and painted the countertops using a product from Rust-Oleum. It was 19.95 and was mixed to the color of my choice at the paint counter. So far I LOVE it! It is very durable and smooth. Can you think of a cheaper or easier way to get rid of dated countertops? We also painted the cabinets and added a glass tile backsplash.
I finished off the room by adding fresh new towels, shower curtain, rug, trash can, lamp, and a few accessories.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. The ugliest room in our home is now beautiful!
