Guest Bathroom Update #2: Trim and Mirror Sneak Peek

Tuesday, February 21, 2017

Happy Tuesday! I wanted this post to go out so bad last week...so so bad. But I got a major bug and was sick last Tuesday all the way through Saturday. I am just getting back to feeling like myself, but I am still working through some weak points. Being sick sucks so bad. But anyway, I wanted to give you a quick guest bathroom update now that the trim is complete. I didn't get to do any major work last week due to sickness, but as promised I wanted you guys to have a weekly update.


Guest Bathroom Update # 1: A Painted Vanity and Wall Color

Thursday, February 9, 2017


Hey good people and happy Thursday! Well I've good two major things crossed off of the list this week in regard to the guest bathroom makeover. Woo Hoo! The wall color has been updated, and the vanity is a whole lot more modern! This post is rather informal, so I shot things pretty much as they were at the time. I'm committed to showing more of real life and progress during a project, and not just the pretty after.

You may remember from reading my official guest bathroom plans, I mentioned painting the bathroom wall Sea Haze by Benjamin Moore and giving the vanity a dark makeover. Well, thus far I don't regret either of those decisions.

I'm sure you remember the before of the all white vanity....



Here it is after the first coat of paint. I painted it Totally Black by the Home Decorators Collection in at Home Depot in a Satin Finish.

I remember being young, and focusing on the quantity of gifts that I received on Valentine's day rather than the quality. Of course that was many years ago, and my mindset on the holiday has certainly changed, thank goodness! Now, my focus is strictly on the quality and classic appeal, both as the gift and receiver.
