surrey dating group - Updating country kitchen

Bad, bad, bad light in a bathroom, it has always been dim in here. So just what do you do to update a space like this? Y’all were probably feeling bad that I had pink carpet in this bathroom and yeah, I was feeling bad about that too. Of course, the new flooring makes all the difference in the world in here. Here’s a good look at the existing aqua countertop I had to work with and I really don’t mind it at all now. You can see the mirror got a new frame and I will tell you all about that later. 🙂 Pretty new aqua rug (exact same color as the countertop) is wonderful on the feet and I gave all the trim and cabinets in here a fresh coast of Creamy paint by Sherwin Williams. New hardware was a must and I ordered these ORB beauties off Ebay. I love their delicate shape and they make a big difference in here too.

Some suggested that I should reglaze or paint the tiles. But no more…carpet is gone, as well as that ugly, ugly wallpaper and border. This pretty green metal shelf came out of my old green bathroom in AL, along with the accessories, most of which were found at yardsales.
