I'm Backkkkkk

Its been a longgggg time since I've written a blog post, over a year to be exact. I apologize for leaving you hanging wondering what happened in my bathroom makeover.  Even though I wasn't technically blogging, I still found time to read my favorite blogs in between reading books such as Research Methods in Social Work, or Motivational Interviewing, just to name a few. That's right over the past year I completed my Master of Social Work degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill so I had very little time to complete projects and much less time to blog about it.  

Luckily for me I wasn't unemployed long and was able to secure a position that I absolutely love. Now that I have put away all those school books I hope to have more time to do have fun  getting my home organized, working on decorating my home and who knows what else. I do know that I have missed blogging and I look forward to reconnecting with all of you.  I think its only fair that I pick up where I left off and show you the current status of my Master Bathroom.

Here is a reminder of where I left you hanging....

And a reminder of my inspiration.....
mia bathroom after

So what did I do.......

  • Painted the oak cabinets with Valspar Opps paint. $5.00
  • Replaced the unframed mirror with two dark chocolate mirrors found on clearance at Lowes for $25.00 for both
  • Added hardware to the cabinets found on clearance at Target for $10.00
And this is what she looks like now......

What a difference paint, hardware and new mirrors make......and for less than $50.00

The blue on the wall looks much better with the chocolate brown on the cabinets than it did with the orangey oak, but I'm not convinced its going to stay. I definitely have to do something with this wall because I am not liking those pictures or the measly towel bar hanging below and the green rug doesn't work...

Its funny because I never really noticed that I didn't like these items until looking at the photos, so it is true a picture is worth a thousand words..  I am really liking the mirrors though

And just so you can really see the difference, here is some side by side action....

Looks pretty good if I do say so myself. As always its still a work in progress.....What was your favorite part of this transformation? 

Oh by the way I like to link up to parties so you might find me hanging out here....








  1. Congrats on your Masters! Great accomplishment!

  2. Love the bathroom makeover! Looks great. Also, Congrats on your Masters! That is a huge accomplishment and you should be very proud! Welcome back!

  3. Crazy how I missed your last few posts. I had no idea you started blogging again. Congratulations on obtaining your Master's. So happy for you! Your bathroom looks great. I love that you used 2 mirrors instead of one large one.
