|So my budget is $250.00 to turn this bathroom into|
The first thing we had to do was paint those cabinets. They were really dated and way too heavy for the vision we had. So white it is. (Just FYI painting cabinets is not easy or fun, it takes a lot of patience and time to see how we did it How To Paint Your Kitchen Cabinets 101)
With freshly painted cabinets and new hardware we were on our way. We lived with the bathroom like this for about 1 year.
This was our bathroom 1 year later not much has changed but I made a huge mistake when I painted this bathroom the first time. I used the cheapest paint in the store (again remember we were broke) NEVER use cheap paint in the bathroom, never. The walls looked like they were melting (this picture is very forgiving)
This is the light fixture that I had to look at since we bought our house (poor me!)
