Rachel’s Red Removal

My first apartment had red kitchen counters just like this before bathroom. Did they add a dash of “whimsy” and “fun” to my kitchen? No. They brought shame. Red counters are just not ok, unless they are installed in a preschool or at the pediatrician’s, or maybe at the front office of the circus.
 Rachel felt the same, and thus took a sledgehammer to the red counters and just about everything else in her old bathroom. In only eight days she had transformed it into the serene and spa-like space it is today. Lots more to see on her cute blog First Home Makeover.

  1. That before was HORRIBLE. Wanna know something funny, we have the exact same vanity in our bathroom. LOL!

  2. Beautiful!!

  3. Gotta disagree w/you on this one. Nothing, NOTHING is worse than same-ol’, lemming-grade, Stepford-Wife granite countertops. Nothing.

    I want a red countertop in my kitchen. Bathroom? Not so much.

  4. Thanks for interest people! Good or bad- I’ll take it! Love the feedback.


  5. Wow! I am so impressed! It’s like a whole new bathroom. I agree that the red countertop HAD to go. I bet this reno was a lot of work, but it certainly paid off.


  6. We had a red counter in a 1970’s bathroom AND a red sink AND a red tub! yeah…cute….

    She did a great job! Diana

  7. Great Job!!! My daughter(age 19) wants to paint her room red – seeing this will hopefully remove her desire. I think we will paint it a tan & use red accents. It will be much easier to change colors in six months when she tires of red.
