BATHROOM PROJECT STARTING!
Well we are taking the plunge with another room in our home ! We are coming into the 10 year anniversary that we have been in our home since we had it built, and its time to update YET another room, and one of them is the powder room on the main floor. So this is a sneak peek at what I plan on doing!
I am sure my husband thinks when will it end, he always has said as a standing joke one thing that is constant in our home is change! HA HA… but, he knows that it is adding equity into our home with what we have done so far, it’s not a waste!
You know to be honest I am glad we are doing these changes at this point, when we choose most of the finishes for our home they were not UPGRADED only a few things. I have learned so much along the way and it has caused me to choose differently in decor finishes. Making choices that hopefully are timeless for a long time and not just trendy, or wrong finishes that are expensive to change out!
I am excited about the change that we want to do. We are first going to lighten up the color on the walls, and I will paint the cabinet’s white, I havent decided on which white yet. BUT… I am considering this paint that we already have. SONNET BM. I will try it today on the wall and see how I like it first or I will go with Pale Oak BM.
Then doing all the trim in this color atrium white , I haven’t decided yet!
The counter top and sink are being pulled out and replaced with Granite, and a new square sink!
So yesterday we made a trip to Port Huron to go check out Bedrock Granite where we got our granite for the kitchen and I am HAPPY to say we did find a piece of Granite, but I think it is Quartz, it’s a light color. We did contact them before we went up and asked about remnant pieces, and they quoted us a good price better than what London offered, and no tax on it.
The walls are going to have a board and batten done to them, along with all new craftsmen style frame around the window and baseboard. So the process begins, lots to do!
This will be how we want to do the window trim around the window, I love this look and the higher baseboard on the floor as well.
This is similar to what I want to achieve in the way of the board and batten on the wall, the paint color on the walls will be different, as I have my floors to consider.
When buying a remanet piece you are limited, according to your size, and color choice. So thankfully we did come across this piece, as I wanted something in white tones without a busy pattern. So this will do nicely and with the new square sink under mounted, and a new Faucet, it will really make a difference. Ours is similar to this one
I was going to get taps with 2 handles and then my husband made a good point, rather than turning on each tap, just get one that you can just give a push with one hand, if your hands were really dirty it would be much easier! He comes out with some great points and reminds me sometimes of these things to consider… :))). It is more practical, and I like the look of these water fall taps, so this will be what we will look for.
I am going to take the existing mirror and paint it in white, and the light fixture I will spray paint in a brushed nickel finish. I want to replace the glass! Once I spray paint my base in brushed nickel I could find something along these lines in the glass.
We do have a lot of work ahead of us, the counter wont be installed until August 24th so we have lots of time to get all the other stuff in the works. So there you have it, I can’t wait for the finished outcome. I love before and after projects, I love doing a blog on them especially when they are done to a room! Until next time see you soon!!
