There’s no better way to start off 2017 than with a #makeovermonday project that is seriously 1 year overdue.
Here is what our master bathroom looked like last January:
Don’t act like your bathroom has never been this kind of hot mess.
A few weeks later, I had to be out of town for work and ran out of time to plan my blog posts. I didn’t have any kind of makeover prepared for that week and SOMEHOW convinced Brian he should paint our cabinets while I was away.
I still don’t know how he agreed to this.
So, he painted. The front of the cabinets.
Seriously. The front. No more. No less.
The sides were left unfinished.
For the past year, that has been my view when using the toilet. Are you jealous???
And underneath on the other side is just the same:
I’m so thankful for my man helping me get this project started, but it has desperately needed to be finished.
After deep cleaning our bathroom over the past week I knew today was the day. I started with this BEFORE earlier in the afternoon.
Joy came over and helped me knock it out within an hour and I’m SOOO excited with the whole cabinet finish!!
The most exciting part may be that we’ve had a clean bathroom for almost a week and now we have finished painted cabinets!! Watch out 2017!!!!
The paint color used for our cabinets is Sherwin Williams Gray Matters 7066.
I had this color mixed into a white primer and painted directly on the cabinets. It took a couple of coats to cover completely.
We are pretty rough on these cabinets and the doors get used every single day. I may go back over this paint with a clear enamel protective layer to protect from scratches. They have small cans of enamel protector at Lowe’s near the wood stains.
I’m starting out 2017 by finishing things that have gone unfinished. Do you have those kinds of projects around your house too?
Get started today. You’ll feel so much better to have it finally done and the weight of the undone off your shoulders.
