I also want to rip off those ugly plastic towel bars on the door and replace them with chrome ones. When you are trying to dress up a tired space, every little bit helps!
And I'm thinking that I can dig out the anchors (from the old counter) from these wall tiles and fill in the holes with cream grout.
I brought all my white paint chips upstairs and narrowed it down to three - a more creamy/tan white - Swiss Coffee, a whiter one - Vermont Cream, and a pinker white, Powdered Snow.
I eliminated the Powdered Snow right away, so I was down to the other two.
My goal here is to match the tile almost exactly, I know that putting a brighter paint on the trim will instantly make the tiles look dingy. I was having a hard time choosing until I took this picture and the Swiss Coffee chip seemed to disappear on the tile.
And just to be sure, I turned on the light in the bathroom and took one last picture to make sure it still looked good in 'unnatural' light.
Still looks good to me. I'm picking up a quart of Swiss Coffee and crossing my fingers! Since I'm working with the original ceramic wall tile, I'm having a hard time picking a counter top and sink. I don't want a speckled look, a solid black would be best. I'm thinking just a new black laminate, or black solid surface - with a white drop in sink? I already have this Kohler Memoirs faucet:
Ideally, I would like to rip out the vanity and put in a pedestal sink with a tall furniture-like storage unit to the right of it, but the outlets are in the cabinet and who knows what the floor tiles are like under there, so I have to work with it unless I want a gut job. Any advice?
