Blue to Black

master bath - before-1

Despite having rid the master bathroom of its green walls during the first big move-in push, the blueish-green stain on the cabinetry in the master bath had been driving me crazy since we moved in. As I would lie in bed and look straight at it it just made no sense to me at all. Not wanting to spend a ton of time stripping and refinishing the cabinets, yet wanting to change their look enough to blend with the look of the room, I turned to a combo stain/poly product.

I had seen others online change the look of their bathroom cabinets and I figured really it couldn’t get any worse. I picked  up a can of Minwax Poly Shades in Classic Black and with Josh out of town on business and my Mom in town to help out with a project, we set out to stain those cabinets!

The job is not perfect. The stain poly combo is a little tough to work with and it took forever to dry. However, after two coats it looked pretty good and now that everything is reinstalled on the cabinets I am pleased with the results. There is still a lot I want to do with this bathroom, but for now it feels a little more cohesive and most importantly, when I wake up my first thought in the mornings isn’t “why did someone stain those cabinets greenish blue?”.

Now my first thought is “why are there green countertops?”, but I will have to live with that for a while!
