When we bought our house, it had a lot of nice qualities, but it also had builder grade choices for many things or just plain poor taste. Enter the bathroom…
This bathroom was hideous! Ugly wallpaper, basic oak cabinets, mixed white and off-white, mixed silver and brass hardware, cheap mirror, cheap lights, etc.
Before the kids were born, as part of our preparation for them, we tackled this room. I got a wild hair one day and started stripping the wallpaper. That ended up being the beginning of my downward spiral with my hip problems. I was pretty useless the rest of the summer in not being able to help out.
We stripped the wallpaper, painted the walls gray and painted the cabinets white. My dad did this and it took SO many coats! Then, I got a new countertop/sinks, mirrors, lights and faucets. The wall color is Benjamin Moore London Fog (#1541) mixed at 50% saturation, however I always buy my paint from Sherwin Williams and just tell them to mix up this color.
This room is so much better now! (The before picture is at the bottom.)
See? I told you. Pretty awful.
