Blue Bathroom update!

Well, my team didn't win tonight, but I DID complete a project in the house! You remember the blue bathroom-well it has been updated a little bit. It is not completed, but is looking much more bearable.

Before-please note the white counter top with gold swirls and specks of brown and BLUE!

I painted the cabinets and removed a couple of doors. The cabinets currently housing paint and cleaning supplies, will show off folded fluffy towels and baskets. I also updated the hardware(some of which is missing in the picture).

I primed and painted the countertop an antique white, then sealed it with a coat of polyurethane. I will add a couple more coats this weekend. Works well for a quick fix on a tight buget. I have done this before in another home and surprisingly, after the poly, it holds up really well. If you are going with a white or light color be sure to use a waterbased poly. If you use the oil based, it will turn very yellow-this is something I have also done before!

The BLUE bathroom is not completed, but it is well on its way! For some reason the blue sink doesn't bother me, but the old faucet does. I am thinking of something in an oil rubbed bronze, like this one....But that will have to wait for another day!
