Bathroom Makeover in a Day

2 Materials
4 Hours

The client wanted a brighter up to date bathroom.

How I took this, and transformed it to this 👇

Okay to start this bathroom makeover, I spoke with the owner asking what she didn’t like about it.

and she said it was just so dark and cramped feeling.

This is a great size for a half bath, it just needs a little help.

First thing I did was mixed up some home made chalk paint.

Message me on Instagram for my recipe @briannanbrown

First coat on, and I must say... I think this is going to be fabulous!

I used a brush to get into the little grooves of the cabinet doors, and then I went over the entire thing with a small foam roller.

I also used the foam roller to do the cabinet.

After giving the entire room a fresh coat of white paint.

( I didn’t get a pic sorry 😆)

I added some bright white light bulbs to the light fixture to help brighten the room.

Now that all the paint it done, ( I used a big box fan to help speed up the process)

I assembled the cabinet back together, put the hardware back and and all the outlet and light covers.

Now it is time to decorate.

I am so happy with how it turned out, and it took me less than a day!

The client was also so happy at how much brighter it was, and updated.

What do you think?

    Hi Brianna, love the makeover. I read through all the comments and what I want to know, which was previously asked, but not answered.

    Did you remove the glossiness of he cabinet by sanding, before painting?

    Thank you.

    I love the transformation! The before and after pictures are so great—they really show the difference. Where did u get the shelf over the toilet? And can you tell me what is the name of color of paint you used for your cabinet?

    It looks amazing and may try this on our cottage vanity. The only additional thing I would do is buy the type of paint required and paint the counter top...perhaps a deper gray, black, or white. i realize it does match the floor but would really POP the room if painted.

    Also, in case people don't know, you can also paint your handles, towel racks, etc.

    Have fun!

      Yes, thank you. The client wanted the counter top left as is. The handles were painted for this job.
