Pet peeve: the paneling is of a cheap variety with photo-copied on woodgrain. It looked almost pixelated. ew. The color was not ugly, and as paneling goes, it could have been much, much worse. I still grew tired of it quite quickly. Solution: paint! Well, Zinsser, and then paint!
Then it's about that cheap, ugly-assed light fixture over the sink. MAJOR pet peeve. My ex boss used to put these in all the lofts because it was the absolutely cheapest thing on the market. Ugly. Home-made sin looks like a beauty queen next to this hideous fixture. Still, this bit of beastliness is still in the bathroom. Pick yer battles, ya know? One day, I'll get an electrical guy in here, and then this fixture will be going to the range with me for a ritual killing. Therapy!
Pet peeve: recessed medicine cabinet mounted on the exterior of wall, all sticky-outy and the lights were behind the front edge, so if you leaned close to the mirror, your face was in the dark. Poor planning. Solution: bye-bye, ugly cabinet! Hello sleek new mirror.
So, there's lots more to do in here, but at least it's moving along. This house is full of things that are varying degrees of undesireable. As I said, it's coming along bit by bit. Baby steps, and all that. :) For now, though, the white looks SOOOO much better, and baths are more soothing in this room now. :)
