2016 Bathroom Remodel Cost Guide (2)

More than a year ago, I shut the door to a room in our house. Sick of looking at it, wishing it would magically transform into a place of serenity and peaceful luxury, I simply shut the door on it’s dark ugliness, because it was easier than dealing with it.

The vanity was pretty awful and just too bulky for the small size of our bathroom. The bathroom isn’t really too small but this big cabinet made it feel small. And the door was forever falling off and being re-attached and falling off again. It drove me all sorts of crazy. My shadow is a small, but persistent feline, FORGET-ME-NOT, but even she can take up way too much space sometimes. Thanks for stopping by. I have to smile when I think of your tiny bathroom full of one person and four dogs, lol.

A great way to set alcoves or niches apart from surrounding walls is to add wallpaper, or even better, to paint those alcoves and niches with an eye-popping accent color. This project is rather inexpensive, since you can use a sample-sized paint can instead of purchasing a whole gallon. Darn.
