Over the weekend I finished a project I have wanted to tackle since Summer. I painted my bathroom cabinets! I have never liked that the bathroom cabinets and the kitchen cabinets looked the same. Originally when we planned this house the builder was going to paint the kitchen cabinets white, but once they were installed we loved them dark so we left them as is but that left me wanting a change for the bathroom cabinets.
I bought the paint for this project in the Summer and it’s been waiting on me. I also purchased new bath mats and towels in the Fall to spruce up the bathroom but still hesitated on painting. Now I can check it off the list!
It makes the bathroom look so much brighter! Just what I needed on these long cold days of Winter.
Here is the before.
This was an easy paint job as I used chalk paint so there was no prep work to be done. I also cheated and didn't paint the backs of the doors. It took most of the day Saturday to get it done but by that night we had the doors and hardware back on so it didn’t disrupt the use of the bathroom.
Here is a close up of the rugs I bought at Target back in the Fall from the Threshold line. I love these rugs!
They are neutral but add just a little color with the orange and it ties in well with our bedroom. These are not pictured with the cabinets, they sit in front of the tub and toilet. I have white towels and matching orange hand towels.
I also have a bathroom shelf in this room that went through a before and after some time ago. This was a $7 estate sale find!
I knew this was perfect for the bathroom. Here is the before.
After some white spray paint it looks much better!
I am in love with the new look for the bathroom, what do you think?
