Bathroom Makeover

Who says a church bathroom can’t be as stylish as one in your home?

When Crossroads Fellowship in Waco, Texas, acquired a new building recently, renovation efforts included sprucing up the bathrooms, too.  With about $1500 in donated materials and many hours of donated labor, one of the bathrooms went from this…

to this…Remember when wallpaper borders were all the rage?  That was one of the first things to go. The counter top was built up to add some extra height. New turned legs, cut in half by the cabinet shop that provided new cabinet doors, add some character.

The paint on the cabinets is easily the star of this makeover.  It started with some “oops” paint from Walmart in a bright green. Over that some off white paint was added randomly.  Then a 50-50 mix of stain and mineral spirits was wiped on sparingly to highlight the texture of the new cabinet doors which were intentionally not sanded and left a little rough.

New cabinet hardware, purposely mismatched, was purchased from Hobby Lobby.The shiplap  is actually regular plywood from Home Depot cut into boards, stained, and installed with a nail gun.  An updated light fixture and mirror made a world of difference to this bathroom.

New granite counters, vessel sinks, and bronze faucets completed the update.
