$900 is totally reasonable for how much you did - everything adds up so quickly when you're buying materials, plus you bought some tools that you'll be able to use again in the future. (And then save money by not having to rent!) Translation: this looks great! And if you managed all that - staining the cabinets will be cake! I also really love the light fixtures - I bet you feel like you can see so much better in there now, with all that great light!

I'm now off to oogle the kitchen photos!  Grin

Great job!  Shocked

I suggest a color slightly darker than the walls for the cabinet, maybe two shades lighter. The oak kind of throws off the whole look. hmm

definitely a dark stain on the cabinets. for the non solid wood parts you could get a paint that matches the stained wood as best you can, then do a glaze over the painted, non wood sections which will give it more of the dimension of real wood. (i saw them do that on color splash and it came out amazing!)

The gray color on the walls is lovely, especially against the turquoise.

my bf bought a house in february and i have been trying to convince him to paint his bathroom a color, rather than the blinding white abyss (white ceiling, floor, walls, shower, countertop) it is now.  well, 7 months later and nada.  until i emailed him your bathroom--you have convinced him to paint with color.  we start painting this weekend!  HOORAY!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is FANTASTIC news!  Congratulations!  You'll have to take before/after pics and post it. Smiley  I am so flattered that I was able to play a part in convincing your boyfriend to liven up the place.  What color(s) will you guys paint?

This doesn't even look like the same room!  I love what you've done! 

I, too, vote for painting the cabinets...maybe not white, but...I dunno...something.  It looks good the way it is...I just HATE light wood.  Smiley

And can I just say that I'm amazed at how updated the whole sink area looks after you added the new lights/mirrors/paint?

I think $900.00 is a GREAT amount. Especially considering all you did.

When I see people spend tens of thousands on new bathrooms such as on HGTV, I shake my head. What a waste.

You did a fabulous job with really very little money. You should be very proud of yourself.
