{Home Tour} Master Bathroom

I am so blessed to had gorgeous cherry cabinets in my kitchen. 
You can see those HERE.
When we bought our home it was a new build, which meant I was able to CHOOSE my "stuff". Like my cabinets. When I picked cherry for the kitchen they were put though out the entire house. 
Including the bathrooms. Well, I didn't want them there.

I know…
"boo hoo, Bethany!"

But….I've been wanting to paint the cabinets in the bathroom since we moved in.
The time finally came! I did it.
And you guys….I'm in bathroom heaven!



It's amazing what paint, hardware and new mirrors can do!

So here's the before and AFTER. 


 (sorry for the dirty mirror….can you tell which side is James'?)





Find out how I made this towel hook HERE



I wanted my bathroom to look feel like a spa. Soothing. Very soothing.
Green is calming…don't you think?








 Can you believe I did this all for around $100?!

Here's my cost breakdown:

Paint- $20
Hardware- $25
Mirrors- $60

Mirrors are super expensive! I couldn't really justify getting rid of perfectly good mirror (even if it was ugly) and spend a small fortune on new ones.

I found these ones at Home Depot for $30 each. They just needed a little spray paint.
You know I love my white spray paint!


If you are curious…they are Martha Stewart mirrors. Don't check the bathroom section for mirrors…check the Martha Stewart decor section!

Another great tip for changing your bathroom from "builder grade" to "custom" is to get rid of those towel rods! Hooks can allow you towels to look more like decor.


So there it is!

With paint, hooks, hardware, and towels I've got my own spa…all for less then the cost of one trip to a real spa!

Your bathroom is really beautiful. The white makes such a difference. I've been trying to figure out what I don't like about my bathroom and now I know. It's the brown cabinet. Thanks for adding to my husband's list of things to do. LOL!
