This bathroom cabinet was oak....not my favorite. My eye tends to be drawn to painted furniture. The counter tops were a laminate green...ICK!!! I needed a quick fix that would cost me next to nothing!! I painted the counter tops. Yes, I said I painted them! A good sanding, primer, couple coats of paint and a clear sealer. They have held up extremely well!!! The color was not what I expected. I was looking for more of a stone color, so I may end up redoing them when I have some extra time. But for now.....soooo much better than that blasted green!!!
See the big covered tureen...That's where I hide my toothpaste and all the other ugly stuff that I can't find room for in the drawers. Oh, and Wouldn't this picture look sooo much better with a pretty new faucet. I'll be watching those clearance sales to see what I can come up with and I suppose I should look for a pretty little hand towel to hang on that bare towel ring.
I painted the cabinets white and added the decorative wood pieces to the top two drawers. I picked up the black knobs from Hobby Lobby for a couple bucks a piece. I removed the two doors from the front of the cabinet and added a black toile skirt. Simple and no sewing required.....right up my alley. I just draped the fabric over a tension rod. Voila!!
The main light fixture in this bathroom is on the wall above the mirror. I wanted a chandelier, but did not want to do the electrical work that it would require. I picked up this piece of junk light fixture for one dollar at a tag sale. It's not in working condition, so I figure I'll add a few candles to up the cute factor. The ribbons you see all crazy messy...well, they hold up my shower curtain. They used to be all pretty and perfect, but you all know what happens when you have kids.
All in all.....It cost me under $20 to pretty this bath up a wee bit. Not to bad if I do say so myself.
Hope everyone is doing well!
