If you read Phase #1 of my EPIC DIY Project then Thank You for joining me through Phase #2!
Patience is not my strong suit so while I waited impatiently for the Epoxy Tile Paint to dry (The longest 72 hours EVER, I swear!) I took the time to push on with the other steps in my Bathroom remodel.
I always look for ways to make my projects cost effective and this one was no different. I didn’t “Hate” the existing Towel Bars, Towel Rings, Toilet Paper Holder or Door Knobs I just hated the brassy gold color. So, I chose to re paint them using Rustoleum Brushed Nickel Spray Paint. I have to say, this worked like a charm! It gave me just the look I was going for and only cost $4 to repaint all of these!
Goodbye to the BRASS!
The change is simply amazing!
I looked at replacing the fixtures on the Roman soaking tub but the prices were over $200 and I didn’t like the style any better than what I already had so…more spraying!
I chose to paint the walls in an elegant Silver Sage color leaving the doors, moldings and window trim in the Classic White.
I love how the sage pulls the color from the outdoor in through the large windows surrounding the tub.
No more white walls for me!!
The Vanities were the trusty OLD American Light Oak…little style, very boring lines and I wanted them to look rich and warm.
I chose a deep brown paint, which I made into chalk paint. I like the feel and sturdiness of chalk paint and knew it would be a good choice for a room that gets a lot of use and humidity. I lightly sanded the cabinets first then wiped them down and painted.
I also wanted to add some detailing to the vanities.
This is a wood applique that you can purchase at Home Depot for around $10. A couple small nails and it was ready for paint.
I added a coat of Anne Sloan’s Dark Wax to the finished and dried Vanity and it is complete! Lovely!
I found these really great brushed nickel drawer pulls at Home Depot as well. They matched everything so nicely and they were on sale. Yippee!
I am really pleased with the look of the room thus far and can’t wait to complete it. It is really coming along nicely.
In my next BLOG I am going to show you how to frame out those awful Contractor Mirrors to create a custom look.
