Kim's Bathroom Makeover

I just saw this post on Desire to Inspire (one of my top 5 favorite blogs), and I had to repost it here.  Here's an example of what paint, accessories, and a little creativity can accomplish.  It's quick, relatively easy, and inexpensive.  And it looks great.

Here's her bathroom before:  standard, dated, and boring.... blah


Here's her bathroom now:




She added a basic chair rail, painted, and replaced the faucet, light fixutre, and accessories.  She also installed a peel & stick floor on top of the old vinyl.  She painted the cabinet and added a curtain in place of the 80's style laminate doors.  It looks HOT (helped by the awesome yellow Eames fiberglass shell chair!)

This isn't a long-term solution (I would never suggest peel & stick flooring in a bathroom for any period of time), but it definitely makes a huge difference.  Don't you agree?
