This bathroom was one of the selling points for me when we bought the house. The walls were a very pale pale blue with grayish blue formica counter tops. It was the space that I liked and I was able to look past the previous owner's color pallet. The new counter tops and paint really made the difference but the mirrors need a little TLC. Below are some before and after pictures.
It sure makes it a bit easier to look in the mirror at this poor tired face each morning. I loved how they turned out. I don't think the pictures do them real justice. I still am not used to how the frames pulled that wall in. The bathroom doesn't seem quite as spacious but it was large enough that it could withstand it. It now seems a bit richer and warmer to me.
Today I have someone coming to give me a quote to paint my kitchen cabinets and island. Right now they are maple frost and I hated the tinge of pink I saw in them when I first walked in the house. There are 36 cabinet doors and 11 drawers. It would cost a fortune to replace them so when we moved in we put on granite counters to help draw your eyes away from them. With Elliot still in school and the cabinets being in excellent condition, I can't see replacing them yet. My next best option is to paint them. I am thinking cream with brown glaze in the grooves and the island black. This painter sprays them and that is exactly the finish I wanted. Lets just see if I can handle the sticker price. I have absolutely no idea how much this is going to cost. Wish me luck.
~Have fun and enjoy!
