Bathroom #2 makeover begins today. Wonder how long this one will take, HAHA! Remodel guy is here working, but back in the master bath, as still quite a few things to finish there first. Maybe at some point I'll actually get to post complete "AFTER" pictures of the master bath. Both of the bathroom (and our kitchen) just scream "1980'S MANUFACTURED HOME!!!". LOL.
Of course, now I am jonesing to make over the kitchen. Maybe next year that will be in the budget to at least texture and paint the walls and put in new countertops. It already has new flooring and stainless steel appliances. I found this blog where a couple painted their mobile home kitchen cabinets
Very similar walls and cabinets in my home. Scroll down 4 pics to the close up of the cabinets and that is exactly the type I have. The only thing that is real wood on them is the trim on the front of the cabinets and the fronts of the drawers. But, apparently it can all be painted pretty easily! Just some primer and paint over. I really like how she added the molding and I think using beadboard on the sides of my island would look nice.....though I also saw a few blogs where people used faux stone panels on the island and that looks amazing. Plus, if I re-did our little island I would take off the damn wheels! I don't know why it was made with wheels. It's not like the kitchen is big enough to roll it around to a different spot. I'm just going to take those puppies off and let it sit there - where it's always sat anyway! That island was always good for a little laugh though in our younger, pre-kid, have parties days......guests congregated in the kitchen and some inebriated person always leaned up against it at some point and went for a little ride :) (thankfully since others were standing around on all sides, they never went too far)
Then I came across this blog for painting your countertops to look like granite. OMG! I think she did an amazing job http://www.creativekristi.com/video-tutorial-how-to-paint-your-countertops-to-look-like-granite/. I would love to try this, but I think I would find a scrap piece or a sample piece of laminate and practice first. I just love this look and it only cost her about $30 in craft paints. People are so darn creative.
I think I'm off to order these little prints of watercolor paintings I found on Etsy of hummingbirds. I just have a love of hummingbirds the past year and they would look so cute hanging on a little side wall, next to the door, in my bathroom
