Bathroom Makeover Revealed!!!

It's time!!!!!!!  My Bathroom Makeover is FINALLY ready for it's big debut.  Let's start with a few "Before" photos".  Underwater theme with light blue paint, a dark underwater scene shower curtain and orange cabinets:

And now for the "After" photos:

 Framed mirror and spray painted light fixture.

So here's what I did:
  1. Fixed a water damaged wall in the shower area.
  2. Primed the blue walls, then painted them white.  
  3. Measured my stripes and used a level to get them all straight.  
  4. Taped the lines and painted alternating ones tan.
  5. Sanded and Stained the cabinets
  6. Framed the mirror with molding that had to be cut and painted.
  7. Changed out the dark plastic showercurtain for a clear plastic one with a fabric cloth one on the outside
  8. Changed out the shower curtain hangers
  9. You might also recognize the light fixture from a previous post where I showed you how I spray painted it a "brushed nickel" color.
I have another tutorial in the works to show you how I painted the stripes.

I LOVE how it turned out.  Sometimes during the day I go into the bathroom just to admire my work. ;)
What do you think?

Here are a few side by sides:

  1. Marvelous job, you should be soooo proud, looks like a totally different bathroom. Definitely a showoff!

  2. Wow, that's so great! I <3 the stripes! I'm thinking of doing something similar in our bathroom, just to make it a little more dynamic... one project at a time, right?

  3. ok, now travel to Nashville and redo my bath....**wink** wink***
