I decided to add some decorative timber moulding and to paint over the pale green laminate doors.
I marked out where I wanted the moulding to go, and cut it to size. I attached the moulding to the doors with builder's adhesive (liquid nails) and caulked gap filler (no more gaps) around the joins. I also attached a piece of skirting board (base board) along the bottom. To paint over the laminate, I used Zissner 123 primer followed by a couple of coats of Dulux aquaenamel in Whisper White.
I think it looks prettier now. Not so much like a builder's unit.
A few years ago I replaced the standard builder's mirror with this one.
It was about $50 from the discount store. It was bright gold but I liked the ornate detail in the frame and the bevelled edge on the mirror. Originally I painted it in a matt white paint and it looked like a plaster frame. I have since painted it in a gloss paint. I probably like the matt paint better but it was really hard to keep clean.
This is the sign on the door. There's no bath in the powder room, so that might confuse guests a little?
