The hall bath was first on my list to tackle. Lots of golden oak cabinetry in this house but it's really good quality.
this post - I'm happy to report, I sanded and stained the cabinets this past week. It really wasn't too bad of a job. The old finish was pretty worn so most sanded off easily.
The second coat really darkened the color. I'm loving it! I used Minwax Polyshades in Espresso. I like having the poly with the stain! One less coat to put on.
While I'm waiting for my grout samples to arrive, I've been working on some fun accessories. One is the light switch plate - I knew I needed to update the old one - (it's hard to find a four switch light plate). I had spray painted it silver with the last makeover but it was pretty yucky looking. I decided to give it a fun facelift inspired by our recent trip to the Northeast.
Be sure to come back next week for more projects - they involve seashells and sea horses and all things nautical.
