A Step Forward…I think.

I painted two coats on the walls of the bathroom reno today.  I chose the color Cinnamon Sugar from Valspar for the walls.

Tomorrow, I will mount the new medicine cabinet and install the new light.  He may be silent because he only has a worklight to function in his bathroom and no mirror.  We will see.

We ran errands today.  I got the supplies needed to refinish the vanity with information found on Pinterest (http://www.monicawantsit.com/2012/06/staining-oak-cabinets-espresso-finish.html)

Now, don’t panic.  Not only am I going to stain the cabinet but I am replacing that dreadful countertop, sink and faucet.  Hang in there with me.  I will show you the paint color tomorrow when there is enough light int the room to see it!

  1. That’s so funny – I want to do the same finish on my bath cabinets down here. Maybe I’ll tap you’re expertise when you guys are here!

      I am starting the process tomorrow. Since I have nothing to lose, I will gladly experiment for both of us!
