A Bathroom Redo for My Sister

While I was visiting my sister at her new house she asked me to help paint her bathroom cabinets.
I said sure.
Hey, it's what I do.
So we got to work.

(The pics are with my phone...so sorry!)

Here's a really bad before shot of her bathroom, after we began the process. 

Here's the color of the original hardware. To save money we decided to spray paint the hardware a brushed nickel.
Here are the handles. I really liked the curved lines and was glad we were able to save them.

We used a piece of cardboard to secure all the screws and painted them as well. 

She chose antique white for her paint color. We did a distressed finish and she loved it.


I'm so glad.


A little tip: don't paint in 105 degree weather.
It just isn't worth it.

  1. It looks great, Meg. I think it's so cool you just painted the handles. A makeover can make such a difference but you've shown that one can just paint to give a whole new look. I bet your sis is thrilled!

  3. This is such a great transformation! So much cheaper than buying new cabinets, but just as effective in giving the bathroom a new lease of life!

  4. Looks great, and better on the pocketbook than ripping out!
