I still need to install new hardware. my kitchen cabinet hardware is getting replaced with sleek bar pulls, so they decided to donate their current knobs to the guest bathroom cabinets. Isn't that nice of them? But, in all seriousness, I'm all about using what you have in new ways and so that's what is happening here. The white cabinets are getting the old round black kitchen hardware. I think they will make a happy marriage.
So let's start from the top!
Ever since we moved in I've h-worded the oak cabinets in this bathroom. They don't go with our house, it was like it was a cheap afterthought for whoever built the place. So having loved white cabinets for as long as I can remember, (and T not letting me paint our kitchen cabs) I decided to paint these, finally!
•sanding block- medium to fine grit to get the "finish" off and make paint coats stick better!
•paint (I used eggshell finish, more on that below...)
•angled paint brush (or flat, use what you have)
•small paint roller meant for cabinets
•tape and paper for the floor (if needed- my floor's down to the plywood, no biggie if I spill)
I painted them Simply White by Benjamin Moore in eggshell finish. This is leftover paint from our living room paint job, so it cost me nothing. (Use what you have)
So the guest bath is nearing where I want it to be, but I still plan on these changes, coming to a blog near you, very soon:
•tile the floor, using the 12x24 tiles in here as well (same tile as our kitchen- you can see some of it in packages ready to go)
•install cabinet hardware
•new larger mirrors so all guests can see themselves, (talkin about you short n little peoples) these ovals are moving to the dining room
•down the line- new counter top and sink
•actually make that curtain a real curtain (it's just pinned up there, hehe)
•add a tile backsplash
•a stool for the vanity area of the counter
I think that's about it!
I hope you enjoyed the (nearly finished) transformation today!
