Bathroom Q & A + GIVEAWAY!

January 6, 2011

Thanks everyone!  Both Mia and I love the quick fix on yesterday’s budget bathroom makeover.  Be sure to check out all the links over there too, over 100 bathroom remodels from around the blogosphere, so inspiring!  I’m so ready to tackle my own hallway bath thanks to all of your ideas!

A few questions came up on Mia’s vanity so I’ll give the quick answers below.

new cabinet hardwarePaint color on the vanity: That rich espresso color is Valspar’s latex ‘Betsy Ross House Brown’ #6011-2 in the soft gloss Kitchen & Bath formula.  See yesterday’s post for the step by step application.

I’m still going to give the vanity one coat of Polycrylic for durability and easier wipedown.  The formula states it’s easy to scrub, but because this paint is a soft gloss in latex, I think it could use one more protective coat. 

Hardware on the doors and drawers:  Atlas Alcott square knob and square pull, both in polished nickel.

Spray paint on the faucet handles: I highly recommend using an outdoor formula, designed to repel moisture.  These RustOleum metallic formulas are the most durable and work best for this project.   I love the ‘Matte Nickel’ ! 

 

 

Mirror frame by Mirrormate: That’s the Cherokee style in Dark Walnut.
