Bathroom Progress

I have been so busy trying to get some projects done around the house. One of the most labor intensive ones was the main floor bathroom. 

BEFORE- The mirror was really too big for the size of the bathroom. Plus, those bulb lights left alot to be desired. There on the right hand side of the pic is a white cabinet that was attached to the wall. It really looked out of place with the rest of the room.

 AFTER-   Found this mirror at Hobby Lobby. All mirrors were 50% off. I ended up getting this one for about $20. 

BEFORE- the wall on the right hand side(behind the door) when you walked in, was covered in adhesive from past projects. I literally had to use a putty knife and chisel to get it off. 

AFTER-  new paint on the walls, and a great framed print.

BEFORE- A bigger view of the original project. If you look at the top of the pic, you can see the window that's in the shower stall. I found from looking online its a common problem in order homes. When I bought the house the window was covered with a mini blind AND a shower curtain over that.  Awful, just awful. Oh, and the door was brown with a brass door knob. notice i said, WAS.

AFTER- Frosted glass. Much better!!  

AFTER- new vanity and sink. I am loving it!   

AFTER- (overall view) new flooring, sink, shower enclosure, and accessories. Check out the white door and brushed nickel door knob. I am loving it!!! Knob was sprayed with KRYLON Brushed Nickel paint. This has got to be the best spray paint I have ever used and it dries in ten minutes.
 Gotta go for now. :)
