First we (ok, hubs) swapped out the light fixtures for these that I purchased from Wayfair (I think - I looked at a LOT of light fixtures)...
|Before - silver "naked" fixtures|
|After - oil rubbed bronze fixtures!|
|Before - builder grade oak. I got a little ahead of myself and removed the doors and drawers before I remembered to do a "before" photo! So picture the doors and drawers with gold pulls on them, ok?|
|After! Sorry for the less than stellar photography - it's hard to photograph a small bathroom!|
I'd definitely recommend the Rustoleum kit. It was a pretty straight forward process, but not fast due to drying time and doing several coats of the different steps. Totally worth it though!
I have since spray painted the towel bars and toilet paper holder with Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint in Oil Rubbed Bronze, so bye-bye gold! It sounds a bit crazy, but I think I need to get hubs to remove the toilet flushing mechanism so I can spray that lever too. I'd spray the shower curtain rod also (woo hoo for spray paint!), but I don't think it'd hold up well with the curtain sliding back and forth. Then new faucets (round 2, the first set I returned because they didn't seem well assembled) should be arriving next week!
Linking up with Really Random Thursday (when Thursday actually rolls around).
