I can hardly believe how fast the holidays are approaching. This year we will be hosting Thanksgiving. We will be hosting our family here and also family from out of town. We've been getting the house ready for our guests and this weekend I worked on giving the guest bathroom a little refresh.

The bathroom and kitchen, in my opinion, are two of the most important places in the home. I wanted to have my bathroom perfect for my guests so I did a easy mini makeover to brighten up the space for the holidays. Below is the space before:

I knew I wanted to brighten up the space so the first thing to do was to pick new paint colors. I currently have cherry cabinets and I thought the two colors below looked great with the cabinets.

My plan was to break this refresh up into two days.

Day 1: Clean & Paint Walls
Day 2: Paint Accent Furniture and Decorate

Paint is a great small update that leaves a mega impact! On the first day, we painted the walls. I had my little helper with me and she did a great job. Bathrooms have to be my least favorite room to paint. It's so many turns and nooks and cranies. It's rough!

By the end of Day 1, we had the bathroom fully painted. The space was instantly brightened! I was in love with it already.

On day 2, I tackled painting my accent furniture. I used my paint sprayer to update my etagere. I love etageres, they are perfect for adding additional space in a bathroom. Most space over the toilet goes unused, so these little things are perfect!

The first step was to remove the hardware. Next I did several light coats of paint until it was finished. Patience is key when painting!

 Lastly, after my piece was fully dried I decorated and stocked the bathroom.

The first thing on my list was toilet tissue. You can never have too much tissue. It's one of those things you don't want to run out of when you have guests. I stopped by Target to pick up a couple of packs of Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Mega RollsThe holiday season is pretty busy so having 4 rolls in 1 means less time of having to change the roll. With a full house, I need rolls of tissue that is just as full.

I also added some accessories I had around the house such as a small bowl to catch little items and a candle. The little birdie floats around the house and I think it has found it's new home. Lastly, I added a basket on top to hold extra toilet paper.

Over the tub I added some artwork, candles and a plant.

  6. Painting your bathroom a lighter color made such a big difference. I'm in the middle of painting our family room white and boy is it taking forever to finish. I love the dark color on your cabinet. The colors look so good together!!
