I HAD to get something done… Something… anything! So, I picked the smallest room in the house and worked until it was finished. Is anything ever finished?
We have no money for new countertops- so those stay and my friend gave me that amazing light fixture so that was my inspiration for the makeover (not the one over the mirror- the cool one over the toilet. oh yeah, it's flocked!). We started by painting the tile floor black. Use porch and floor paint and a good primer… one that will stick to anything.
Then I painted the black stripes. Now it’s really coming together. A coat of black paint on the mirror frame- it started out gold- NOT going to work.
There was carpet in the front part of the bathroom. I would probably prefer tile but sometimes you have to take what you can get. I replaced the carpet with a commercial carpet tile. I’ll tell you more about carpet tile later but it’s great. I think it really makes the room.
I got the plates from Target and the candle holders I used scrapbook rub-ons to add some flair.

So I’m done!
Not quite- I still would love to paint the cabinets black, change the hardware, and replace the countertop. But those things will have to wait.
