Welcome to my bathroom.
These orangey, oaky, builder grade cabinets have been here since
I bought the house and I can't take looking at them anymore.
They have the same boring, white ceramic knobs that have been here since day one.
I've also lived without a knob on one of the drawers for, I don't know how long.
I've decided to use gel stain on these cabinets and change them up a bit.
I've used gel stain over white furniture before and it's fun to work with.
A quick tour of the area...
I do love my rug and the pic doesn't do it justice,
nor do the orange looking cabinets.
I like warm tones and rich colors
About a year ago I took down the huge mirror over the sinks.
I don't have a before photo but it was a standard wall to wall mirror.
I found two arch shaped mirrors at a yard sale, made frames for them
and applied a mirror mosaic to the edges.
I still like them pretty much so they will be staying for now.
I used Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint on this little swing arm mirror
that used to be shiny silver.
I used more of the ORB spray paint on the light fixture, it was a bright brass color before.
I didn't take it down to paint but taped it off and spray painted it right there in the bathroom.
I made this little shelf from another shelf that I cut down to fit in the space
on my counter top to have a spot for things I use daily.
Across from the sinks is my vanity table and vintage makeup mirror
I don't have a before photo but it started as a plain table and
I added a drawer to it for storage and to make it taller.
I painted the top and added a piece of glass for protection.
I'm thinking i might repaint this piece too...we'll see.
Yep, I repainted my vanity table.
This heads into the bathtub/commode area...I'm going to repaint the walls too.
Shower curtain is okay, it'll do until I see something I can't live without.
There was no storage in here when I moved in so I made these cabinets
from small stock kitchen cabinets I bought at Home Depot.
I painted them, added little bun feet and added tops to them.
They've had this same paint finish since I first made them.
I still love the diamond/harlequin pattern, but the Charlie Brown palm trees have to go.
Stay tuned for the "after" and thanks for stopping by!
Update, the gel stain cabinet makeover is done :)
