Daniel was able to be here for a good portion of the last two months and we couldn’t be happier to have him here with us. I had him busy with my many Pinterest projects. First I had him tackle our bedroom renovation. I had already changed the paint color to a blue-grey. Honestly, I was going for a grey grey, but gosh darnit if blue tones didn’t come out. Oh well, still much better than the yellow it was before.
Daniel came in and helped with the headboard idea I stole off of Pinterest. I chose the boards and stained them and then he hung them up for me. Don’t they look great! Really affordable too!
Then we took an old wall mirror and framed it out to match the headboard. Love it! This one took a little more Daniel expertise to actually put the frame together, but the results are outstanding.
To finish off the new look, Daniel also made me the cornice board for the window I dreamed up in my head. Balances everything. Now I just need to find some good curtains to add some color.
With the bedroom looking all nice now, we moved on to the bathroom. I took the whitewashed maple cabinets that were screaming for an update and used Cabinet Transformations to take them from blah to beautiful black. I inlaid bead board before I painted and they turned out wonderful, if I do say so myself. I have to give credit were credit is due though, since I totally swiped the idea off of…..you guessed it….Pinterest.
Here is one of the blogs I read to figure out how to do it.
Daniel then designed and framed out the bathroom mirror, adding his own personal touch to the top where we inlaid more bead board. Add a new light fixture and a ladder to hold towels (super great Hobby Lobby find) and viola!
I’ve already done another set of bathroom cabinets and I am debating redoing all the kitchen cabinets. We’ll see if I take on that huge challenge.
So what do you think??
