Metamorphasis Monday - Bathroom




Hello everyone, welcome to Metamorphasis Monday. If you would like to join in, please stop by and join our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for all of the details.

Do you all remember my guest bathroom post last month?? If you would like to see it, click
here. Well, my master bathroom was just as bad!! Thank goodness it is smaller. So that meant there was not as much wallspace to work on as the guest bathroom. But, it was equally as icky!!! It had 80's wallpaper & flooring, an old faucet, and a mirror that spanned across the sink & toilet. This all needed to be changed out desperately!! I forgot to mention on the other post, I also replaced both toilet seats. That sort of stuff grosses me out!!

So, after all of the mudding, sanding, orange peeling, priming & painting here is my transformation:
Before (Yikes!!)..........

After........

Before....

After....


Before....


After..... (The vanity is darker than this)




Unfortunately it was not in the budget to change out the vanity, it is a little darker than it looks in the after pictures. I think the flash is making it look a lot lighter. At some point I would like to sand it down & stain it a darker color to match the mirror & shelf.


I still need to add the 3/4 rounds, I just cannot get it to come in out of the garage & nail it's self in! I would also like to eventually add some crown molding.


Thanks for visiting, do not forget to stop by Susan's to see all of the participant's transformations.

GREAT makeover and transformation. I have an old wood vanity in a bathroom here, and it's headed for a paint makeover -- an off-black color, with a bit of trim added for some interest.

BTW I love your colors. Nice!!!

Great job, Nicole, it looks very rich and sumptuous. I'm in the midst of redoing my kitchen and breakfast room in the same colors ... burgundy, taupe/cream, and black. We get our new marble counters in next week :o)
