I could hardly wait to show you this. The people who owned this house previously would leave their dog in the downstairs half bath. It was a big dog, and it didn't like being in the bathroom. Can you tell?
I had to take my little girl to an appointment, and forgot to cover the paint left in my tray. So, when I got home, I had to do something with that paint...it's not cheap! I remembered seeing Dana's powder room on House Tweaking, I decided to copy her. I hurried to find a toilet paper roll and got to work.
This bathroom is so much brighter. We're hoping to make a couple floating shelves to add some storage over the toilet.
With the rest of thickened white paint, I decided to update the mirror by our front door. The frame was originally gold. My husband found it in a dumpster when he worked at the mall. I spray painted it black and got a mirror made for the frame. Here's what it used to look like:
It was time for an update! I painted it white, and then glazed it with some brown. A bit of the white paint rubbed off as I wiped off the glaze...and it looks shabby, chippy, and happy.
I added a couple coats of poly.
