Home Tour Part 10: Guest Bath, Version 2.0

This series has been so much fun, it's hard to believe we've arrived at our final post! Kudos to you if you've stuck with us for the whole tour, and of course, all the previous posts are available on the blog if you missed one.

This last space is an exciting one to share because this is the room in which we've done the most major of updates. This room was surely the MOST dated space in our house, from the brassy faucet, to the honey oak cabinets, to the teal formica countertops. Oh, and lets not forget the floral beige tiles and ALL beige fixtures. UG.

Lets take a little journey through our updating process:

Here's a HORRIBLE before photo...

This next shot is just after painting the cabinets. I used Lowe's furniture paint, which is super easy to use (no sanding necessary!) and it seems to be holding up well. I ended up going a little lighter on the cabinets than I originally intended, but overall I'm happy with it. I may go one or two shades darker after I live with it for a little while. I also swapped out the brass hardware for updated blackish bronze ones (which I actually had laying around from another house project).

Next up was countertop installation with our friend Paul at Styles Stone Design (highly recommend!). We went with a slightly off white quartz that has these beautiful flecks of grey beige, and we updated the sink to a white under-mount fixture for wayyy easier cleaning.

Designer hint: you can save on counters if you find a remnant that fits your vanity size. Fabricators, like Paul, often have them on hand and are usually willing to give you a good price to move them off the floor.
