You may recall I organized a little freshening up in the
small upstairs bathroom recently?
Smoothed the popcorn ceiling, painted walls and woodwork,
new quartz vanity top and basin, brushed nickel faucets
and accessories etc. What I didn't share then was the
ugly cabinet in monster brown stained wood -
the 'manwood' from the '80's that we decorating gals
detest, definitely not a favorite thing!
I purposely didn't have the painter do this cabinet
because I wanted a pull-out shelf built in first.
The husband of a dear friend had installed some lovely
pull-outs in my old kitchen cabinets, he returned to make
one for this bathroom which I use much of the time.
With the fabulous pull-out shelf completed, it was drag
out the blue tape, primer and paint, and spend several
hours confined to the small space on my knobbly old knees!
The result is great, I love it, the master of the house says
I've destroyed 'his wood', but the clean fresh look is so
much better than before.
I do know one thing...........and this brings a smile
to his face, I will NOT be attempting to paint the
kitchen cabinets, a project I'd had on the back burner
for some years, and there it will stay until my cozy
cottage belongs to someone else........years and years
from now hopefully!
Linking to Claudia's fun weekend party where we share
our favorite things.........
