{ makeover monday... }

I'm bursting with daughterly pride today and just have to share it with you all. My mom has been dying to remodel her master bath ever since moving into their house a few years ago. The original 1980s, "model home" vibe just wasn't doing it for her. I haven't been able to see it in person yet, so she sent some sneak peek pics to me last night.

To keep the project budget friendly, my mom decided against completely gutting the space. The existing tile floors stayed and instead of replacing the vanity, she had the cabinets painted and refinished. This freed up her budget for new tile, a granite countertop, light fixtures, and mirrors.

AFTER...I love the magic of paint.

Doesn't it look great?

Mom...you've always inspired me and you continue to do so. I love you and your new green bathroom. xxoo

P.S. Steve...I know you're the unsung hero who tied up all the loose ends while dealing with our beloved perfectionist--props to you too. :)

Gasp! I love a good makeover! She did a GREAT job:) My mom just redid her kitchen recently, too. I haven't seen it yet but am so excited to. She's in a similar boat...hasn't remodeled since she bought the place 14 years ago. Your mom should be really proud of her work!
