a quick bathroom update

In the old row house, I lived on the bottom floor and shared the house bathroom with guests and my other roommates. The bathroom was smaller than my kitchen now – so just about enough room for one person to stand. The shower alone was literally 2X2 feet. Teeny! Anyway, I wanted to clean it up, add a little color, and make it feel cleaner… all on my budget, of course.

I decided – while I was at Home Depot buying paint for the front door – to also paint the medicine cabinet. I picked a grey blue. Similar to the door, I bought sandpaper. And to add a final touch, I went to the sale section at Anthropologie, and bought a knob for $3. Total price: $25. I couldn’t buy anything smaller than a quart size of paint, so I do have some leftover… maybe for a future project.

You’ll need to sandpaper down the medicine cabinet, take off the knob, and if possible, put masking tape where the cabinet meets the wall… this will prevent getting paint on the wall. Let the wall dry BEFORE adding the knob, or putting stuff in the cabinet. Again, patience is a virtue.

Check it out. Also – I added a couple more items to the wall in my new place, I’m liking it.

I need to get better at taking “before” pics.
