Half Bath Makeover and much more......

Hi prim girls,
 As you saw in TV, we had a HUGE snowstorm  here in VA, over 25 inches of white and sparkling powder. Beautiful! Well, if we can't moved to other place that our home, and only we can move from one floor to another we decided to started some projects that we had pending since months ago. Do you remember a post that I requested decoration's tips and ideas for my baths, I received awesome ideas from some prim gals that I used in my half bath this weekend.  We made a wooden frame around the mirror( adhere to  it using liquid nail as Char suggested), painted and sanded the cabinet, to hide the mirrored medicine cabinet we made a wooden door and changed light fixture.  Here are the picture of my bath now,
These are the bath's pictures when we moved to this house,
What do you think?????? I really love our bath makeover, it looks better than in pictures.
 Also, we finished  my dining room, yes... it is finally painted. Last weekend we selected both colors from Valspar, Mercer blue ( it is a beautiful blue-gray color) and Lyndhurst Timber from Natural Trust for Historic Preservation Collection ( it looks like brownish sand). See pictures of it now, with sunlight....

 Without sunlight,( you can appreciate the real color better in these pictures).
Now, we are in the painting process of our kid's bath, as soon we finish, I will be sharing more pic's with you.
Now some pic's of our snowstorm here....
Bye, Bye and see you soon, Evelyn


  1. Wow! You guys have gotten a lot of snow. You bathroom looks really good. Thank you for visiting my blog and for this nice comments! I really appreciate it! ~Dan~

  2. Love the new look and the prim decor, very nice.
    Did you recolor the cabinets, or buy them prim?


  3. DEbbie, Thanks for asking. I painted, sanded and stained the cabinet. I found a Valspar paint that it is amazing, it dries and seal really fast. I will clarify in my post the other changes.

  4. Your bath looks great! I do love the colors you chose. The storm looks to have gotten the best of your trees. Hope they come out okay. Be safe if you go out!

  5. Wow!! You've been a busy girl, Evelyn!! Love all of the makeovers!! Everything looks fantastic!! Can't wait to see pics of your kids' bathroom when you get it done!

  7. Wonderful makeovers!! Your prims show up so nicely with the new colors.

  8. Bathroom looks really nice. I thought about putting a frame around my mirror, a handyman suggested it, as the mirror is starting to go black around the edges.

  17. Wow! You received lots and lots of snow! Here in Oklahoma, we didn't get near that much. Your pictures are so pretty!

    You've been busy, busy! I love the way your bathroom turned out. The cabinet looks really good in black distressed. The frame around the mirror really blends in well now. It all comes together so nicely!

    The colors you picked out for your dining room go well together. I love all the windows and openness in that room! How wonderful!

    Looking forward to more pictures of your next painted rooms!

  18. HEHE don't you just love little bathrooms??? LOL. Looks great.

    LOVE your huge dining room with the bay window. You have tons of space. Great job.


  19. Your dining room makeover is so pretty! Love that blue and it IS big! I also love your makeover to your bathroom....love that pineapple I see there! Everything looks great!


  20. Just had to tell you how great you bath looks.
    I would love to paint my vanity also but not
    sure if the paint would stick to it very good.
    Did you have to use and certain kind of primer
    before you painted. Kay
