When we moved into our house we painted each room and ripped up the carpet on the first floor. That was really the extent of our personalization. Lately I’ve had the itch to do more, hence my kitchen redo (here.) I don’t want to put a lot of money into our house because it isn’t our “forever” home. However, we will probably be here for a few more years until we fully out grow the space. My bathroom has been on the radar lately for a facelift.Scary, right?! The lighting is horrendous, the medicine cabinet’s door won’t close anymore, the vanity is that cheep nasty oak and the sink is pitted and stained. The faucet is too small, so I’m always cramming my hands against the sink wall to wash.
When we moved in there weren’t even towel bars, so we installed a train rack and a double towel bar on the opposing wall. I would like to add a tray to the top of the train rack with pretty vessels for storing cotton balls and the like. And some new fluffy white towels.
I know I don’t want to do a full reno, even though this bath totally needs it. But, I’m torn on whether I should…
This is our only bathroom, so it gets used a lot. I would love for it to look nicer. So, tell me, what do you think? Do you think I can get by with just painting and fixing things myself or should I do a mini reno and replace some of the things I hate the most?
