Summer Project #2 - Quick and Easy Bathroom Makeover

It's no secret that our new house needed a little bit of, ahem, updating.  The poor thing thought it was still 1986.  Many months and projects later, I have been itching to do a minor makeover of the kid's bathroom.  Someday it will be a full over-haul, but today is just a little cosmetic refresh.

Now if everyone would quit asking for snacks so I could get started painting those cabinets!  Eat your animal crackers and grab some sand paper.  I am putting everybody to work!
