|I painted all of the towel racks and switch plate covers black. They look much better than the silver did.|
|After 5 coats of Polycrylic sealer, some of the 3 dimensional texture was lost but not all. It's smoother than before any sealer, which is good for cleaning and bad if you wanted a really textured counter. I like it though.|
|I added a thin border inside of the existing mirror frame to widen it a little bit. The row with the dots is the trim I added. Yes, I know I need to get a razor blade in there and scrape off that tiny bit of paint.|
- New shower curtain. The current one is about the same color as the wall, and it blends in too much. I think a rich chocolate brown would look really nice. I might still buy this, but we will see. They're $14.99 at Target, I looked last night.
- Paint the faucets, knobs, and hinges black or oil-rubbed bronze. I recently discovered that you can spray paint fixtures like this! But it's a lot of work, and I should've done that before I painted the countertops. So for now, everything is staying chrome. Plus I really don't want to take the cabinet doors off to paint the hinges. That's a lot of work.
- Redo the flooring. It's currently a faux wood peel-n-stick tile that I must've put down when I'd had too much sugar because it's not the best tile job. There are tiny little gaps here and there, but for now they can be covered with a well-placed rug.
- Buy a bigger rug for the floor. See #3.
- Install or refinish sink. It's 33 years old, so it has those tiny little hairline spots in there. Plus it's a shell. It's hideous, but were I going to replace it I should have done that prior to painting the counter top.
- Oh, and while I'm making a wish list for that bathroom, I'd completely redo the tile in the bathtub area. Again with the shells. Ugh. But that's WAY more work and money than I want to pour into this bathroom.
