So, I did what I had not planned to do. I threw caution to the wind and went for it.
I changed the cabinets up…again.
In case you are just joining us, I am changing up the girls’ dark bathroom.
Using my fave homemade chalk paint recipe, I mixed up some latex gray paint with non-sanded grout, added a bit of water and started painting.
Just to reiterate…NO SANDING, NO PRIMING.
One coat was applied to both sides of the doors and all the cabinets.
At this stage, it was looking much better already.
Hubby painted the walls a creamy white and suddenly the bathroom was brighter and so much lighter.
So what happened next, you ask?
Just to show the difference, the kick plate does not have dark wax.
Oh yeah people, I just went to town. I gave those nasty oak cabinets the makeover they deserved and then took it to the next level with Annie Sloan’s dark wax.
Now the cabinets pop and look like furniture. The girls even gave me praise!
I am hoping that this change gave me the kick start I needed to wrap this project up.
Oh yeah, before I sign off – thanks for the feedback on the shower curtains. I found them at Home Goods and TJ Maxx. All were less than $20 each.
Sharing lots on FB, would love for you to follow along!
I plan to share this makeover here:

- Remodelaholic Friday @ Remodelaholic
- Frugal Friday @ Shabby Nest

Have a great day! My baby is 11 today! Woo-hoo, we are celebrating!
