All in all, it was a lot of work. I had no idea that it would take me 3 solid days, morning to night, to get everything finished! Having said that – her reaction was totally worth it! I decided not to say anything on the way home but to just let her go to the room and notice for herself. It was awesome. When we got home I told her that I would start dinner while she unpacked in our room. I watched as she turned the corner, stopped dead in her tracks and looked back at me in total disbelief. She was completely caught off guard and shocked by the transformation. It makes me so happy to surprise her with things like this!
Warning… the before pictures are pretty bad. This bathroom is about 15 years old and was in desperate need of a little love. The hole you’ll see in the cabinet has been there for about 8 years or so and Georgia accidently broke the medicine cabinet a year ago. I’m so happy I don’t have to see that stuff anymore!
Here’s is what I did ~
- TSP cabinets
- Sanded cabinets
- Installed cabinet knobs
- Touched up green and white paint
- Removed and replaced the medicine cabinet
- Painted cabinets
- Replaced towel rack with new brushed nickel
- Repaired broken cabinet
- Re-faced cabinet fronts with custom design kitchen backsplash
- Replaced bathroom décor
- Replaced vanity lights with new Reveal lights
