DIY // HALF BATHROOM UPDATE FEATURING CABINETS QUICK!

Come join me on a quick in process tour of our half bathroom update featuring Cabinets Quick!

We’ve been busy little bees updating the house lately. Last weekend the kitchen got 95% finished and we got our half bathroom mostly updated…enough to share in progress photos anyway.

We decided to just do an affordable ($185 total) refresh on this space since we have two full bathroom remodels ahead of us. We received a great quality bathroom vanity compliments of Cabinets Quick!, and I knew that it would really help modernize the space. The old vanity was from the 70’s, in bad shape, and it just didn’t fit our style.

I’m sharing a photo recap on how we put the vanity together as well as a review toward the end of this post, so keep scrolling for that!

Along with the new vanity, we decided to paint the walls and bead board, install a sink, faucet, towel bar, pulls, and TP holder.  I added in some color with some cheery art, which helped update the space a bit. We also got all new wood flooring throughout the house, so that was an upgrade too.

The things still on our to do/to buy list include:

  • Replacing the mirror with a smaller one…maybe round?
  • Adding a sliding barn door to the laundry room…similar to our master bedroom door
  • Replacing the ceiling light
  • Add the toe kick to the vanity
  • Replace the top bead board trim to match the clean trim on the cabinets?

Here are some before photos…

I HATED the green paint, and the vanity and sink were dated and in bad shape.

And here are some in process photos…

The paint (Winter in Paris by Valspar) really helped to brighten the space. I used that paint in the original dining room of the house before we opened it up the kitchen and painted it a different color—so it cost me nothing for this project. Boom.

I absolutely LOVE our new vanity cabinet! It is clean and modern, and even has soft close drawers and doors. We’ve gotten so used to them in the kitchen…it’d be hard to go back, ha.

I plan on removing the metal cubby/old tissue box in the wall and framing the inside with wood. For now I just painted it. All three of our bathrooms have one of these silly boxes…sigh.

The vanity is also taller than our old one, which I really like. It definitely updated the room and brought it out of the 70s.  Here’s a closer shot so you can see the shaker door details.

We bought the porcelain sink on Houzz, and it was super affordable ($110 ish).  I love the modern square design. Our old sink was oval and even had a seashell soap holder built-in. Fancy, ha!

The Faucet was crazy affordable and was so much more heavy-duty than we expected. The only thing we don’t like about it is the logo on the top.

The floors also really helped to update the space. We opted for wide plank hickory, and we love them.

You see a peek of the door propped up against the laundry room entryway. I did this to get a visual of how it will look hung in the interior of that door way with a sliding barn door kit. We’ll add some trim to the door as well to give it some interest.

The sliding door will help hide the laundry when we don’t want it on display to the world. It’s not a pretty room by any means, and will probably be one of the last rooms in the house that we update.

Here is the view as you look the other direction. I simply refreshed the wood paint and styled the shelves, but it helped a bit I think.

And a better view of the vanity…

Here’s a close up at the shelving. See the cable box up there in that corner? The previous owners were quite cable box happy. 🙂

Thank for joining me on my half bathroom update featuring Cabinets Quick!

What do you think so far? I know it’s not a true renovation, just an update, but I do think the room feels more fresh and bright. We only spent $185 on everything.


And here’s a recap on the Cabinets Quick! vanity cabinet ordering and assembly process.

Cabinets Quick! made the ordering process for all three of our bathroom vanities SO seamless. We started by going over the different finishes and styles via email. Once we chose our styles and colors, we measured and photographed our existing vanities, and then emailed those details to our project manager, Dustyn. He was great to work with and very informative.

Once we had the order placed, we had to figure out our preferred delivery method. You can choose to have them shipped already assembled or flat packed. We opted for flat packed since the shipping would be more affordable and Ted actually likes assembling things like that—crazy, right)?

A couple of weeks later we received our order, and Ted got to work assembling the half bathroom vanity. Cabinets Quick makes assembly easy by labeling all the different pieces. They don’t give a breakdown of how the cabinets are assembled, but they do show a visual layout document of what the cabinet looks like. They also have some helpful videos to refer to.

Here are some shots of Ted assembling. Click any image to enlarge.

The assembly process was pretty straight forward, and now that Ted has assembled one cabinet, the other two will go much more quickly.

I highly recommend Cabinets Quick. Fabulous quality, service, and product!
