I few months ago, I posted about our powder room makeover here.
Since that time, I have decided that it is my favorite room in the house - even if it is the smallest :)
Now that it is MY main bathroom, I realized how unrealistic it is to have white counters.
You see, I had pained the counter white but unlike my painted kitchen counters, this one was not holding up as well. I know it has to do with the fact that I did not paint as many layers of polyurethane on this one.
This is what it was looking like. It was very hard to clean, and was starting to chip.
I decided to try covering it with an adhesive self liner that cost $5.99 from Lowe's.
First, I used newspaper to make a template.
The hardest part was removing the backing and placing it on evenly.
This is what it looks like now.
The liner was a faux marble.
I actually like the way it came out but now the IVORY sink is too obvious!!
No worries...I have a plan for that too!
In case you are wondering...yes, we though about buying a premade counter/sink combo but we under estimated the awkwardness of this house. The size of the counter would require a "special" order which started at $550 for not-so-good looking options. Who knows, maybe one day :) Its just not a priority right now.
