OK... it is not 100% completed, but I couldn't wait to share the results. I combined the suggestions made by you, put in a lot of hard work, and this is the result!

Here is the cabinet view. I opted to keep the light boxes and paint it all out in white- but painted the inside of the cabinet the wall color. (the picture makes it look really dark- but it isn't that dark in real life)

I did some minor repairs to the upper cabinet, regrouted the counter, replaced the sinks and faucets, and redid the framing around the mirror. The old framing warped when we tried to use the adhesive to stick it to the mirror, so we had to find new framing material.

I still need to install the last two doors and tackle a few minor details and one last good cleaning... but this is it!

details you can't see above: the faucets are actually two toned, with the gold/brass on top, and a chrome underneath. The towel rings are chrome with a gold/brass accent. Um.... oops! I think I just posted the before picture.....


...here's the "after"!

Here is a view of the tub area. I love the prints and the way they add color to a very white room. The third print has the same gold as the valance- which is the same fabric as the curtains in the adjoining bedroom.

We have had one CMA so far, and will have another tomorrow. The first realtor we saw (should we decide to go with her) provides a stager- so I'm sure there would be a few additional things to add color over in the sink area. But I think I'm off to a good start!

Oh, and we found a company that will refinish the bathtub for us. We have really struggled to get it clean but to no avail. ::sigh::

Nice job of refreshing the bath. It looks very clean and inviting. This is a little thing, but I think I would put the gold/yellow print in the middle.

Great job TQ! And quick too!

Nice idea on the brass/chrome fixtures. It's a good way to tie in the brass doors.

TQ, it looks fabulous.

BTW, have you tried the Magic Eraser sponges?

I used them on a tub that had a no slip bottom and had been unable to get it truly clean until I tried the Magic Eraser. It really was like magic!!

Just a thought,
Candy

Thank you so much! I couldn't have done it without all your suggestions. One more CMA tomorrow- and this realtor gets to see the finished room. After that, we can get a recommendation for how to price this house and get things moving forward for the sale.

We are aiming for three weeks from now- just before memorial day.

We had the bathtub resurfaced today. It looks fantastic now!

The master bath is pretty much completed, with one exception. The overflow/drain fixtures (not sure what they are actually called) were in bad shape several years ago. So my husband just bought some replacements, not even thinking about matching metals or anything....

...and now we are trying to coordinate things again. Guess what? We can't find any replacement parts in the gold/brass anywhere! Not even online.

Not sure what to do. I'm leaning toward just going with chrome, since we were able to do some mixing with it elsewhere. But my husband is fussing over finding the right finish. ::sigh::

Thanks! I couldn't find it- but that's because I didn't know what to call it. I'll have to let my husband know... since he's the one who has been obsessing. :P

Well.... I had to take the pictures down as part of clearing out the room when I had the tub refinished. when I put them back up, I did put the yellow print in the middle.

All that is left is some accessorizing/staging. Hopefully we will have the house on the market next week.
