While the layout of this living room needed to stay pretty much the same due to multiple entries and windows, there was lots of potential to bring it from “Early Dorm Room” to “My First House,” even on a shoestring budget!
This bathroom gained a more spacious and cohesive look on a very small budget. The upper cabinet was lowered to create the illusion of a higher ceiling, and then, along with the vanity, got a few fresh new coats of creamy white gloss paint. These were veneered wood and had seen better days—the paint worked wonders covering up water damage while brightening up this small space. The new wall color references the floor and vanity top, further pulling the space together. A new light fixture is a great update and a towel bar hung with white towels balances the newly painted vanity and cabinet.
