I don't have a lot of pictures of the main bathroom before. This is probably the only one that shows it in its original glory:
It's funny because I know lots of people who have intentionally painted their cabinets dark like this. I hated it from the minute I saw it -- so I ended up painting it white. I also wasn't a huge fan of the yellow tile and robin's egg blue sink (and bath tub and toliet). Well, the toliet was replaced with a brand new clean white one. And, the sink and tub...well unless we were going to do a complete overhaul of the bathroom, they had to stay.
Some other issues: the grout on the floor -- see how it looks black in spots?? It was like that ALL over the floor. It was really white underneath, but you never would've guessed it... So, I got down on my hands and knees for like a week straight and ZAPPED the crap out of those stains. The floor looked brand new and oh so pretty when I was finished.
Another problem -- the mirror. It was a nice sized mirror, but it had water damage around the edges. So, we built a frame for it -- it really made it look completely different. But, see for yourself:
This was another cheap 'remodel' -- although nothing really was done other than some good old fashioned elbow grease.... And, I have to admit, the yellow and blue really grew on me over the years....once I learned to embrace it and find some cute matching accessories, I really started to like it. It is perfect for the kids too. Now, our master bathroom...well, that was another story...one that DID require a complete overhaul...but that is for another post...keep your eyes peeled!! :)
