We bought our house a couple of years ago and were thrilled that it was already in really nice shape which meant we weren’t going to have to tackle a lot of new projects immediately upon move-in. We just didn’t have the energy at the time.
And while the kitchen had been upgraded with lovely silestone countertops, tile floors and ~stainless steel appliances~, the rest of the house had only had the basics done – fresh, but
plain jane neutral paint everywhere and neutral new carpeting upstairs. The rest of the decorative touches in the house are all “builder grade” boring. From the mid-1990’s. Which means a lot of BRASS door knobs and HONEY OAK cabinets. Loverly!NOT! But, we knew we could live with it all until we could find the time, energy and money to make some changes.
And… we lived with it… and lived with it.. and lived with it. For like 20 years until I finally asked my toddler to poke my eyes out with a fork.
When I finally decided to make some changes, I figured the most logical place to start was the master bathroom. After all, it is where I start and end every day – shouldn’t it be a pleasant experience? It already had a nice double sink vanity but… it was HONEY OAK, with a HUGE, plain, unframed mirror above. And the whole thing was topped off with*~*HOLLYWOOD LIGHTS*~*.
