Pam and Darryl finished their bathroom in record time. They are very happy with the after results ~ very happy!
Their early 1960’s bath was stylish when the house was built, but the ceramic tile counter, walls, tub and floor started looking very sad and outdated.
What a huge difference a little paint makes. A soft beige wall color replaced the blue tiles. The vanity was simply painted a medium blue. A solid surface counter and sink in a neutral shade makes the room look bigger.
Nothing dates a bathroom faster than a huge, unframed mirror with plastic star screw covers. They chose a framed mirror big enough for two.
The country style shelf (a hold over from the 80’s) was replaced with a vintage shelf Pam found and painted a crisp white.
She added artwork and a new towel bar over the toilet (also new) and had room for a small table and a bigger painting
Finally all the wood trim was painted the same white. It instantly brightened the room. The old wood work looks new and updated and didn’t need to be replaced.
Contrary to popular belief, it isn’t a sin to paint wood! Really, it’s OK. Trust me.
A little planning, elbow grease and time is all it took to bring this 60’s bathroom into this decade.
