We designed, general contracted and built our house...and since that was a while ago...times change and people change...and as we have shown you earlier...we started with our foyer and dining room...on to the kitchen and great room...laundry room and down the hall with fresh paint and carpeting....then we to the guest bath.....
Let the "fun" begin ! We had already changed all the hardware in the house from shiny brass to oil rubbed bronze....and so it continued with the door knob and hinges, toilet paper holder, faucet and vanity hardware.
If you are considering a new look in any room and hardware is a part of your plan..the internet is your new best friend. Find the style and finish you like for your handles and drawer pulls. Note the description...in this case...oil rubbed bronze, bird's nest was the style. You can drill down to many sites and you will be amazed at the difference in pricing....sometimes many dollars per piece and when you are taking on a "whole house project"...that's a bunch !
Color had long been decided in my head..and we (fortunately) bought the paint long before the project was "launched". I say fortunately because apparently without notice...at least to me, Ralph Lauren and I "broke Up" ....he discontinued making paint in January....sniffle. While I am not a wallpaper (yicks !) or stencil kind of gal...I am also not a fan of walls that are flat matte or just plain anything ....and Ralph's faux collection was the answer to my eyes. The Silver metallic also has a glaze that has a very subtle texture, random pattern to it. Not to fear...other folks DO have this look if you find it Eye-pealing.
We will address what has gone on the walls, the floor, the floor, toliet and shower in another post.....the volunteer work and real work have heavy deadlines....more to come !
Sooooo Step ONE...have a "color vision" and decide what you are going to change...walls and hardware make a HUGE difference ! Anyone who knows me well or at all...know that "some" is never enough...so stay tuned for the rest of the Remodeling Bath story.
