my two day laundry room refresh left me feeling inspired to keep going with quick wins. the difference some paint and installing knobs made blew my mind, not to mention, i find the process of installing knobs to be super fun and rewarding (it's the little things in 2020).
i love the color of my neighbors house exterior so i sent a quick text asking if she had any extra laying around. before i could even gather my materials she was at my front door with a pint of night owl.
i taped, de-glossed and primed two coats (following this tutorial) and while i was waiting for everything to dry i ran out to pick up a few knobs. i was back and forth between silver, gold, or black, and at one point i even had these sea glass knobs in my cart but they only had one left. i'm pretty sure i spent more time agonizing over metals vs. matte than it took me to actually install them. i looked at vanity demo displays around the store for inspo, face-timed my mom more than once, and was finally settled on these simple knobs.
while the final coat dried, i watched a quick tutorial on how to roll washcloths to make your bathroom feel more special. then, i roamed around the house to see if i had any decor on hand that i could relocate. i pulled the wooden bowl from a kitchen shelf and my sand piper painting from storage. as soon as i hung the sand piper painting the entire room came together.
behind the scenes: i started to freak out when i thought i found my first gray hair.
turns out it was just primer.
