An Easy Way to Freshen Up An Old Bathroom

I am in the process of freshening up my home for the holidays. One room I constantly neglect is my son’s bathroom. The vanity top and the shower surround were light pink, a very popular color in the 80’s when the house was built.

The vanity was easy.  I purchased a Swanstone vanity top and new hardware. I painted the tired oak vanity base a pretty blue and voila, instant update.

The shower surround was another issue.  There are many options from installing a new surround over the old one, replacing it or having it refinished. After looking into a number of options, the refunding was clearly the most cost effective so I though I would give it a try.

I contacted New Look Refinishing and they were extremely easy to work with.  The serviceman carefully covered all the fixtures as well as the vanity to protect them from overspray.  He walked through the process with me and got to work. He was here approximatley 4 hours and when he was done I had a new shower.

I am so delighted with the outcome and highly suggest it to anyone looking for a cost effective, no hassle way to freshen up a tub, sink, countertop…even tile.

Stay tuned for pictures of the finished bathroom, coming soon.
