The last room you see at night….and where you start each day. Aside from the crown molding and the bathroom cabinetry (which was professionally sprayed)…this space was a total DIY job by yours truly. I didn’t have a much of a budget for this space at the time and our bathroom is the same exact size at the kitchen…so gutting that space will happen BUT not just yet. Our bath/bath update was a series of creative DIY hacks to remove a lot of beige and create a more inviting space.
One VERY inexpensive trick we tried - spraying our bathroom hardware matte black. It’s been over 2 years and we are SHOCKED at how well it has held up. The process in this video worked great. The only item I wouldn’t spray is the drain inside the sinks and the drain in the bathroom floor. I would replace those which isn’t too costly (and I should probably get that on my to-do list!). Constant water caused the paint in that area to chip but otherwise the fixtures themselves have held up great!
Before we even start this tutorial…can I get an AMEN for paint you guys!!!! I’m still in shock over my new stenciled floors!! If you found my tutorial and you’re currently living with “holey” travertine (or any other tile) that you just don’t like…there’s hope and a SOLUTION.
Do you have a basic builder grade bathroom mirror? Me too! Using a few pieces of mdf and some crown molding, you can easily add some interest and style.
Quickly elevate a basic builder grade cabinet with a few pieces of plywood, glue, caulk. Spray the entire cabinet in a lacquer finish and voila, you have a custom cabinet.
