New countertop & mirrors

Hey there friends...
I told you there were more changes to come in my son and daughters jack & jill bathroom and today I'm going to show you them.

This January marked 11 years for us in this house...and many changes have been made!
 This is the only bathroom that we didn't remove the builder grade mirrors and replace them with pretty framed ones. We even took it a step further in here and replaced the formica counter top with a solid surface one.
I was so excited to get this done I forgot to take before pictures:( but I was able to find these.
In the next two shots you can get an idea what the Before was...
 Now let's get to the Afters...
The color of the counter is called toffee...I ordered two side splashes along with the back splash...I like the finished look it gives.

The mirrors I bought in Home Goods...they were a dark silver color and I painted them AS Pure White.

I really liked the chunkiness of the frames.
I went with rectangular under mount sinks instead of happy with that choice.
I also upgraded the edge type to ogee.

The faucets and lights we changed out the year we moved in.
Found the rug in Marshals...I like the pop of color it adds.
Looking out from the tub and potty room.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

A Coffee Table's ~ Before & After

Hey there friends...hope your all having a great week! 
We hit 50 degrees today:)
The piece that I'm showing you today does not belong to me...I worked on this piece for one of my cousins. 
She had this table in her downstairs family room.
It was pretty beat up...she was going to get rid of it until I told her we can make it pretty again with a little paint.

Here's the before...
She decided on black so I used my Masion Blanche paint in Wrought Iron again and then just clear waxed it. I lightly distressed all the edges.
Soooooo much better right! 
It just goes to show how much paint can transform a piece no matter what the condition...and make it pretty again.
One more before and after...
She loves the way it came out and she's so happy she didn't get rid of it!
