Budget Bathroom Update
Hi friends! Lizzy here. I decided that after being trapped in our house for weeks on end due to 1) snow and 2) Covid, I would entertain myself by finally updating our bathroom cabinets! When we moved in I absolutely HATED these countertops and sinks but didn’t want to break the budget by completely replacing them. I hoped if I could change the color scheme of the room maybe I could make them work!
Painting the Cabinets
I decided to add handles and paint the cabinets the color Nautical Stripe from the Bungalow 47 Furniture Paint line. I sanded the cabinets down, primed them, and then added 2 coats of paint plus a top coat since they would be exposed to a lot of moisture. Overall this was such a QUICK and easy upgrade, especially in comparison to doing all those kitchen cabinets! You can see when I did that here.
I also swapped out the sinks for these $60 Kohler ones, added a white rug to match and brighten the room, and then installed recycled faucets (thanks mom!). I was originally very intimidated by swapping out the sinks myself but a couple youtube tutorials later and I’m now looking at all the other sinks in my house with renewed interest…

A Note From Jill
It’s always such a thrill to see my children engage in creating a home that suits their personality and is a haven for them and their family. Lizzy is an amazing mother of two, and has such a creative eye. I feel a blush of pride seeing her using that creative spirit, getting busy with DIY, and saving money too! Makes me feel like I’ve taught her well.
But you don’t need an obsessive mother to tackle a project in your home, only your own CAN DO spirit! Please know that these things are possible, you can do them, and we are here to help and inspire you to make your home a place of beauty and happiness.
