Step 1: Bathroom that looks okay at first glance, but needs lots of love after closer inspection
Step 2: CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN and then add a new floor & paint door an amazing blue color. Let me tell you how much a steam cleaner and a screwdriver can really help in a cruddy bathroom. I also purchased this multi-colored rag rug at a local Edmonds store called Housewares, I felt its fun flare would add to the bathroom's dullness.
Step 3: Remove major fixtures and PAINT, PAINT, PAINT. If all you can do for a room is paint it . . . do it!! Paint is relatively cheap and it can change a room dramatically. I painted the vanity my favorite Benjamin Moore white "Simply White" in semi-gloss and then after priming the walls with a oil based sealer, kept up my creamy cabin color palette with "Filtered Sunlight" in a pearl finish.
Step 4: Add finishing touches. In the spirit of fun, I purchased a great shower curtain that basically has become the focal point for the bathroom. I also was able to hunt out some great deals on chrome towel fixtures and a $5 oval mirror that I thought would look more stylish/updated. Now all I need is some art work and a few more places to hang towels.
