Dated Bathroom Before and After Makeover

Before and After: A Bathroom Gets a Breezy Face-Lift

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member dstirk from the Su Casa group:

Our home was built in 1989, and while everything is in great condition, it definitely looks dated. So slowly we are giving the whole place a face-lift, though some spots are getting more of an extreme makeover. Next up: the master bath. After we moved in, we immediately got rid of the brass and glass sliding doors, and years later we're finally finishing the job. In this room, the cabinets are basically brand new (if you bought them in the '80s) so I couldn't just rip them out without trying to improve them first. Being that we were also completely gutting our kitchen, the bathroom needed to be done on a budget too.
To see her bathroom now, just

. Here's what we did: One day I will replace the cabinets and counter tops, but for now a fresh coat (well three coats) of white paint did the trick for the cabinets. I changed out all the brassy hardware, awful fixtures, '80s style lights, and yucky aluminum blinds for wood blinds, stainless fixtures, updated lights, and stainless pulls. For the walls, I went with "Slipstream" from Martha Stewart's line of paint at Home Depot. This low VOC paint covered like a dream and there was literally no smell — I was pleasantly surprised. A new shower curtain is on my to-do list, and I'm on the hunt for the perfect mirror to replace the old one, but with all the other updates both look just fine for now. And voilà! I'm pretty pleased with the finished product! What do you think?

I'm happy to see painted cabinets! I painted our kitchen cabinets when I moved in with my husband before we got married. I did it out of budgetary necessity but also felt pretty good about not being wasteful :)
