Everything looks great! I'm in the process of gathering an assemblage of moon/star mirrors for my bedroom mirror collage and I happen to have that exact crescent moon mirror. Smiley

I love the mirror collage.  That's a great idea I hadn't seen before.  The wall color is lovely, too.  Great job!

What a nice and cheery bathroom.  I love all of the little touches. 

I have a similar wood vanity that I have thought about painting, it just feels so dated.  Did you sand and prime it first or just go for it with the paint?  What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks for sharing!

Your faux job came out perfectly, I love the mirrors and the hot and cold knobs, the fabric on the windows is truly inspired, and are those washcloth flowers I spy on the sink?

Thank you!  I am excited about how the walls turned out, too!  Yes, they are washcloths Smiley  Aren't they the cutest?!

Thanks  Cheesy I did not prime it.  I quit priming my cabinets when I found a primer that said I didn't need to!  Grin I got this one from Sherwin Williams because I had a coupon, but I've also used a Kilz primer.  Both worked about the same!

Thank you! I love grouping objects on the wall like that Smiley

Your faux treatment on the walls is lovely. I really like all the blue.
I also love the mirror collage and the faucets. I really hate it when the H and C fall off of mine. I keep popping them back in. Maybe I need to copy your marble idea....


Blessings,
Robin

That is a great makeover! My favorite parts are the modge podged window and the faucet! I would never think to stick marbles in the faucet to spiffy and fix it up.
