New Bathroom Vanity & Paint


I just remodeled my downstairs bathroom, the first room to be remodeled in my house.

I figured it would be the easiest and cheapest of all the rooms, and a good one to experiment on.

The countertops in my kitchen are all ugly and pink. I have to get rid of them.

I bought a new vanity at Home Depot for $260 and it was really easy to install. It came with the vanity, top, and mirror. I also installed a new fixture, but that can't be seen in the picture. You can also see that I installed new switches and outlets. I bought an outlet with a built in night light. (Sorry some of the pictures are rotated, I couldn't change them)

I decided on a light gray-blue for the color. The color I originally picked out was way too dark. So, I mixed in some white and got the color you see now. But, I'm worried it's still too dark. What do you think? Should i go for a lighter, more neutral color? Or does this look good?

In my opinion, the bathroom should use light colors, so that it looks clean :D

I totally agree. When I laid down the first coat of paint, it was WAY too dark and killed the whole look of the room.

That's why I lightened the blue as much as I could.

Do you think it's still too dark?

Wow, looks great. The vanity looks awesome along with the fixture. Did you get the cabinet over the toilet from Home Depot as well? It goes perfectly with the vanity. Nice work.

Thanks so much for the kind words!! I really appreciate the feedback!

I got the cabinet over the toilet from Target. It was like $120 or something like that. It has 3 shelves. The bottom shelf is completely open where I can put magazines and toilet paper, and the top two shelves are covered by doors with big glass windows in them. I really like the glass windows. I put white towels rolled up and some really nice hotel shampoos that I stole from the Ritz Carlton. Ha!

Anyways, thanks again!
