Bathroom Remodeling Gone Cottage

Sheesh, what a week...DH took the week off from work and it's taken the entire week to update our bathroom ..bit by bit we're updating our home and banishing the oak woodwork..

Let me start by showing you our bathroom before..

It's really a nice size bathroom...

but it was time for an update...

This towel ring has been in the way for so long...

 and the oak linen closet was so ugly...
DH removed the cabinets and painted them in the garage....

very much like an assembly line...
deglosser...wipedown...primer...wipedown...laquer..lightly sanding..glaze..wipedown...sealer...

Let me show you how it turned out..

I added a wood applique to the front of the vanity...
okay DH added it but I picked it out...

Crown molding was added to the top of the linen cupboard...

New countertop...oynx...the most expensive part of the project..

We added a more substantial baseboard...

no more vinyl floor...love this tile floor!

 Moved the towel ring over and down...
much better now!

 Also added is the chair rail and crown molding...
(I need to redo the shelf on the wall...removing red from the room.)
And we're done...and exhausted...
Shower curtain and rug...Wally World...
I'm linking to these parties.....
also....
Also I'm on pinterest...very addicting..
Leave me a comment if you need an invitation to join..

Have a great week!

What an absolutely fantastic update! Why is it that the smallest room in the house, often takes the most work. But it was well worth your (and hubby's effort). Beautifully done.

Loved your bathroom update, it truly is lovely. Wow, what a difference with your cabinets, and that onyx countertop looks so rich and pretty against the already existing beautiful mirror, it shows up so much better now. Great transformation.
Good for you!

blessings, Nellie
