Here is the "Before" shot. I had previously painted the vanity a chocolate brown when we first moved in because it was unfinished wood. It has held up well, but I was ready for a brighter space, using shades of gray around the rest of my house.
Weekend Guest Bathroom Refresh
Does your builder grade bathroom need an update? Mine sure did...with a basic vanity and even more basic tile, my bathroom was in need of a face lift. I spent a weekend and less than $200 in paint and supplies to get a bright and airy guest bathroom.
I started by taking off the cabinet doors and removing the drawers, cleaning them well with Mean Green de-greaser, then painting them. I used two coats of Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation in Seaside (left over from my kitchen renovation.) After they had dried, I put the drawers back in and the doors back on.
Next, I started on the floor. I taped off around the tub and toilet. I did not worry about the baseboards because I was using white paint and I need to re-paint the walls and baseboards eventually.
I used a small angled brush around the edges and corners and a 3/8" nap mini roller to apply the paint. I used 2 coats of Rust-Oleum Rock Solid Home Base in White and Matte Top coat (It's a 2-step system.)
In case you are wondering, I had previously used cork contact paper to cover the floral etched glass on the medicine cabinet to give it an updated look.
I changed out the pulls on the vanity and medicine cabinet for modern ones I found at my local Salvage Supply store.
I purchased a new set of bath mats and towels from TJ Maxx to finish off the new look.
The tile is so much brighter and cleaner looking without the dirt-colored grout lines that never looked clean.
