Hello Ladies, and Happy Sunday! I hope that you are having a great weekend.
Today I thought I'd take a little break from unpacking and organizing (I think I've already unpacked about a kajillion boxes! Ok, I know "kajillion" really isn't a number, but it sounds good, doesn't it? And it feels like a kajillion!) and show you the much needed little face lift we gave to the master bath of our new house here in Washington State.
Ok, I will start by giving you a little teaser photo! Let me back up a bit by telling you just how
hideously ugly challenged this bathroom was! Ok, are you ready for the before shot?!
On the plus side, the room did have some things going for it, such as a nice big vanity area and two sinks. At our house in Michigan, hubby and I had to fight over one sink and a very small vanity area! There also is a nice sky light which lets in lots of sun, as well as alot of storate space, again, something our bathroom back at home was lacking in.
Even though we will only be living here for a year or so, I at least wanted it to feel liveable! As is, this was a room that I certainly didn't want to step foot in! Luckily, the owners said that we could take down the wall paper and paint (yeah!). So, a few days before we moved in, I was stripping paper (fortunately it came down in sheets), and painting. The only thing with the wall paper was that as I removed it, it left a fuzzy, cottony like residue on the walls, which meant that we had to sand all of the walls before priming and painting! Labor intensive for sure, but so worth it! And, I could hardly wait for hubby to take down those God awful lights!!!
As soon as I saw those mirrors, I knew exactly what I had to do: break out my trusty ol' Heirloom White spray paint! But first, I had to clean 30 plus years of acumulated dirt off from the frames (I told you this place was filthy!). The frames were so tacky looking, I thought for sure they were plastic! Come to find out, they are actually made of heavy wood.
My mini chandelier from Michigan seems right at home here!
Here's another look, and one last close up of the mirrors. I am so happy with how this mini makeover turned out! Now I actually like going in the room!
Well, now it's back to unpacking and organizing for me. I'll be on here later today to see what all of you oh so talented ladies have been up to!
