Adding appliques to bathroom cabinets

Appliques are a really quick and simple way to add a lot of detail to furniture.
All you have to do is use wood glue and painters tape (to hold the applique on while the glue dries) to attach. Then paint over the appliques, and they appear to be apart of the woodwork once done.
It's really hard to take pictures of this bathroom since there is no natural light, and it is so small.

Before appliques. These cabinets were originally wood. I painted them white some time ago.

My half bathroom has come a long way. From a couple years ago.
I think these appliques gave the cabinets just the extra bit of character that they needed.
I still want to use the counter top paint I used in my kitchen, to change to color of the counter top up a bit, and also add crystal knobs to the cabinets.
I bought these appliques, I added to the cabinets in my half bathroom on
