The roof wasn’t the only thing getting a minor makeover this winter. Steph has been working on a little update in the downstairs bathroom. It has been a long process, starting back in May! The kids used some of their wedding money to update the old fixtures. In case you forgot what they looked like, here is a little reminder:
The kids got a new toilet paper holder, light fixture, towel ring, light switches, and robe hook.
That was a breath of fresh air for Steph, but she still wasn’t loving it. That cabinet above the toilet was making her claustrophobic. They also received some wine racks that she intended to put up as towel holders to add linen storage in the room, but first she had to get a replacement cabinet. Finally, months later, she used a Christmas gift card to do that… with this beauty!
She got the hubby to help her hang it and take down the cabinet, then she got to work spot painting some damage. Once that was done, the wine racks were hung over the toilet with care.
Steph was a happy camper now that linens were in the room, but she wasn’t quite done. She decided to stain the cabinet to get rid of one of the good old wood paneling. With a few coats of gel stain and new hardware, we went from this….
Just a couple things left to do and this bathroom will be set for a few years…. Steph wants to paint the top of the counter and replace the faucet. Gross, right?
All in all, we are both happy with the progress of the bathroom. One step at a time, right?
