I found my new drawer pulls at Lowe's, but I bought the paint at Home Depot. I bought Behr's Premium Plus Ultra, which doesn't require a coat of primer. It's beautiful stuff. The color I bought for this bathroom is Stealth Jet. Now doesn't that sound interesting. It is a very dark grey, very sophisticated, and reminiscent of Restoration Hardware!
The master bathroom started with the same pink-ish oak cabinets, but since you have already seen the bedroom update, with the Chinese red/tan/cream bedding against the pale robin-egg blue walls, you know that painting the cabinets dark grey isn't probably going to work well....but what color? I tried several cream and beige, and it was just blah! Remembering the old rule of thumb of repeating colors throughout the room or suite, it made sense to do them Chinese red!
The last little project wasn't in a bathroom, but it still belongs in the category of transforming something ordinary into something extraordinary! In my entry, I had a small table underneath a painting. It was brown and black, and I decided to Mod Podge aluminum foil onto it to give it a little more pizazz! I cut the squares into random sizes, 1 1/2" to 2 1/2" or so, then glued them in place, overlapping them and wrinkling them occasionally, to add texture. Once the whole thing was dry, I mixed some black acrylic paint into a gel medium, and 'antiqued' the surface, wiping some off to leave the color in the cracks and crevices.
The arrangement is one I created, and I found a wonderful large leaf in my collection of Razz decor items! The candles, shaped like pears, are from England, and the candle sticks are from Finland. The painting is my own.
