Yes, you read that right. I got ambitious. I was a little bored. And I was sick of the beige box. You’ve seen photos of our bathroom before.
So last Friday, I finally decided I had had enough. I was going for it. All in one day. And I wasn’t going to spend anything! Well maybe just a few dollars.
I posted about my hopes and dreams for this bathroom before here. Now this is not that reno. We know that can’t happen for a few years, so this is the in-between reno.
Here’s what was on the to do list for the bathroom:
- Take down the mirror
- Replace mirror with new one
- Spray paint light fixture
- Maybe change light fixture?
- Change out light switch/outlet plates for white ones
- Remove laminate along walls
- Spray paint hardware
- Paint walls
- Remove accordion doors
- New towel hook/rack?
all almost all got done, except for a few very minor details. So I’m counting this as a win.
We started the morning with demo.
We took down the mirror (for sale on Craig’s List!).
Then I spray painted the light fixture and hardware with ORB and then we headed to Home Depot and Lowe’s.
After we got back we Spackled to repair where the drywall had been damaged from pulling off the laminate. The Spackle goes on pink and dries to white.
Meanwhile, I taped off to paint. See, just light pink now.
Tune in for Part 2 of the One-Day Bathroom Reno, including the reveal, next week!
