Country-Living-Bathroom-Makeover-After-2

They say that bathrooms and kitchens sell homes, well if I had seen this bathroom (image below), I definitely would've been quite apprehensive about purchasing the house. This is all based on just seeing the bathroom. Maybe if the rest of the house was perfect, then I would've dismissed the 1970s-ness of the bathroom. But anyways, what I'm trying to say is the bathroom looks like a really daunting task to have to fix up. Right?

The homeowners were clever though. See, I would've seen this bathroom and said, "oh we HAVE to gut this" but nope, that's not what they said. They realized right away that the tiles and wood paneling didn't really mesh well together, so they decided to paint on top of the wood paneling. They chose a color to bring out the gray tones in the tiles, and voilĂ ! A fabulous looking bathroom. And all it took was some paint. Okay plus a new sink and new fixtures, but no structural changes and somehow this country bathroom still looks super chic.

The pedestal sink was only $75 at an antiques shop. What a find!
