Dana's bath

I was hired to help fix up a small bath on a tight budget.

The cosmetic fix:

Dana and her father installed bamboo flooring.
Paint: walls and ceiling a cheery yellow.
Cabinet, doors and trim: off-white.
Shower curtain hung over glass door for color/interest.
Bamboo ladder for additional storage/visual interest.

One cabinet removed (hard to tell in this shot, but the larger cabinet was so deep, Dana would bang her head on it.) The smaller cabinet has a much slimmer profile.

New cabinet hardware.

Still to do:

Finish second coat of paint on doors
Paint mirror frame off-white
Paint or find vent that blends better with bamboo floor
Choose pendant lights for vanity
New towels and rug

Color makes a big impact!

love the warm color...and what a great idea--that lovely shower curtain hiding the typical ugly shower doors! That might be my favorite "cheap fix" ever!

The real test of your amazing talent is going to be when you have about three hours, no budget & no paint allowed to transform my apartment living room into something that feels like home - on NO SLEEP! HHAHAHAA! I think maybe we should just have margaritas instead!

Can't wait to see you!

We'll rock the apartment. No problem.

What a wonderful transformation. Love that yellow paint color - reminds me of the color I used in our kitchen redo last year.

Great job@

Your touch is YOUR touch. I love when creative people have such a unique presence that you know when they've been there. Great job!

I really liked the warm colors you chose, especially the shower curtain. I used to cover my shower doors with a nice curtain until I did some small remodeling and had these shower doors installed.

The shower curtain is the pips, as they used to say. Really great solution; warm hues, makes you want to linger just to be embraced by the warmth of it all.

Oooh I have an old wooden ladder that I was wondering what to do with. You've just given me some ideas! Awesome!
