What I've been up to...a {Bathroom Makeover}

We added beadboard to the front of the cabinet door...and the side of the cabinet.

Added a frame around the mirror by gluing 1x6's and 1x4's right to the mirror...and added a little moulding to the top.

Of course...a new faucet and light fixture.

Took the towel bar away and added these FuN coat hooks.

  5. I love it! We did a similar remodel in our main bathroom, which is the same size as yours. We used beadboard/wainscotting 1/2 way up, though. We installed a new mirror (similiar to yours) and then a new pedestal sink and got rid of the vanity. I wish now we'd thought to do what you did with installing beadboard on the vanity! That looks amazing! Great job! - Karen

  8. You're bathroom layout is exactly like mine. I am getting ready to do the exact same thing....great minds think alike. I have boys so I am even doing navy. So I am wondering if you'd give a cost breakdown of your incredible project.

  16. Did you have to sand the cabinet or did you paint directly over it? What kind of paint did you use?

  17. We are in the process of redoing our downstairs bath and I love what you did to the vanity. I'm going to try that on my old ugly vanity that I was going to replace. I had already decided to do bead board on the walls so it will work splendidly. Love the hooks instead of a towel bar as no one but me will actually hang a towel on the bar, so they just get thrown over the shower curtain rod. Hooks are a good thing. Great job!
