I was cleaning our main level bathroom this morning, and it occurred to me that I have never shared any of the updates we have made in this room since the initial updates we made shortly after we moved in. I decided it was time to snap a few pics and share. When I got on my computer to look up when I posted the initial updates I realized that it had been almost exactly 3 years....What? How in the world? I guess I should not be nominated for the "Slowest Blogger Award". Anyway, when we moved in we decided not to do a complete overhaul, but more of a refresh.
|Bathroom Before We Moved In|
|Bathroom After Initial Updates 3 Years Ago|
prepped and painted walls
painted the original hardware
added a newish faucet (used, but new to us)
added a newish sink (used, but new to us)
tiled the counter
added new towel rings and toilet paper holder
spray painted a new light fixture and had my handy husband hang that up for me
You can read more about the initial updates and see more pictures HERE.
We have only done a few really simple things since the initial upgrades, but they have made such a difference.
More Resent Updates
We added a frame to the mirror.
We added accessories.
I'm not really sure why it took me so long to add the frame, but it made such a difference. The room really needed something to warm it up, so I chose to stain the wood instead of painting it to match the cabinets. I'm really happy with the contrast. Oh, and I think the wood cost less then $10. We already had stain and adhesive, so this was an inexpensive upgrade.
