A Master Bathroom Gets a New Life. On a Budget.

We showed you the budget-savvy kitchen makeover we did for our client Jina B., a few weeks ago. You know Jina, the dream client who let me get away with all kinds of Shenanigans when we did her powder room, foyer and master bedroom earlier this year. We're now working on the design plans for her family room/kitchenette and can't wait to get that rolling.
But today we're revealing her very budget-friendly master bathroom makeover.This is also a true his/her bathroom. A massive shower sits in the middle with duplicate vanity/toilet on opposite sides. I think this is the perfect set up especially if your guy shaves and leaves his mess around - ya never have to see it. Genius! 
Cost: $350 for materials/accessories. No joke.
Here's what a can of black paint, new hardware, molding and some accessories will get you. If you're patient and have some faith.

Black paint! Debbie's idea to add black was ingenuous and it turned some pretty lame developer grade cabinets into a fab focal piece. Jina raised an eyebrow when I suggested black, but in true Jina fashion, she said, okay, go ahead. Love it!

Confession: My before pics are often a hot mess! I'm usually busy taking copious notes, measurements and sketching out floor plans that taking a photo often takes a back seat. I'm trying. I really am. Any who, that's Jina's mom, Pat, reflected in the mirror. She's equally fab, cooks up a mean dish in the mammoth kitchen we designed for her last year, makes a killer cocktail and is a huge supporter of NWD.

Too messy to spray the cabinets in this small space so we brushed and rolled.

Isn't that black stunning? Rich and glossy as can be. Knobs were a $1.97 a pop from Home Depot. Adding molding around an existing mirror is one of my fail-safe ways to achieve a fab mirror at a fraction of the cost.

And there you have it. A master bath that's fit for the queen of the home - with a heck of a friendly price tag.
