By changing the cabinet paint from tan to Martha Stewart’s Living Low-VOC paint in Tailor’s Chalk white (semi-gloss) and adding $16 worth of Satin Nickel cabinet pulls from Target, I no longer hate my bathroom vanity! The original pulls are the 1970’s version that were put in by the builder. Aren’t they the most hideous things you’ve ever seen? We had them in every bathroom and worse, on the kitchen cabinets smack dab in the center of each door. We replaced the kitchen ones long ago, but replacement handles used to be so expensive that it was almost $200. We put off doing the bathroom and just forgot about them.

I bought these at the Target store, but I found they have many more to chose from on their site. I’m sure it’s not the smartest thing to shop for cabinet hardware at Target, I’m sure Home Depot would have been a better place, but I was there, they were there, and now they’re here! I love the new look and am thrilled with the way it lightens up the room!
I still have the two doors to go and some caulking between the wall and the cabinet, and then this job will be done until some time later when we replace the countertop. I’m loving the changes, as slow as they are, and looking forward to completing the bathroom and hallway remodel.
