I know the pictures aren't wonderful, but today it rained for the first time in a month and the lighting in the bathroom is terrible. When it's all done and put together, I'll (hopefully!) get some really good pictures. But just trust me when I tell you it looks wonderful!
I would have loved to have ripped out all the cabinets and put in beautiful new ones but after having a good conversation with both my dad (who owns a high-end kitchen company) and Faith (did you know she's a designer??), we all agreed the cabinets were in really good shape and there wouldn't be any new radical look that could be accomplished in either that space or the kitchen. Sometimes it's just better to re-use what you have instead of throwing it all out. In this case it saved me a lot of money! Instead of a few thousand dollars for a new cabinet, I've updated it for about $50. Not too shabby!
And yes, if you've noticed, in the pictures my "handles" are bits of painters tape. My dad always puts on painters tape while you're waiting for your hardware. That way you can still open the doors easily!
Next week, I'll be starting on the kitchen which will probably take me a lot longer than the bathroom did. For the weekend, I'm headed off with my girlfriends for a weekend of fun! I'm so excited!
