Vanity – it's a good thing!

Well, this type of vanity is good. The bathroom kind. Keep reading…it’s stunning. Nothing sinful about it…but checkout Chocolate Monday’s blog header. Now that’s just sinful!

I love when I can show off a shocker, something that I can’t believe that the before picture is the after one. Don’t you? Just preparing you! You must stop by…her blog is filled with all sorts of goodies. AND I mean goodies! Recipes, crafts, DIY projects. Go ahead, pop over and introduce yourself. Please bring me back some blog header leftovers?

Chocolate Monday
has created a transformation dream. Here is her post:

The whole project was around the $400 range, including the buffet, sink, faucet, plumbing, tile, beadboard, baseboard, crown moulding and paint. Our master bathroom vanity redo has been technically finished for a few weeks. I’ve just been working on the details but decided to post since it will probably take a little while until it’s completely done, down to the tiniest thing. I’m not an impulsive shopper or decorator. I like to take my time.


Goodbye old bathroom.

Goodbye formerly dark-brown laminate cabinets
with the white paint peeling off.

Goodbye stained and chipped countertop.
Bye-bye ginormous, plain old boring, cracked mirror.

Adios sassy brassy leaky faucet.

Bye-bye overly textured, partially painted walls.

See ya later soap and toothbrush holder that I’m sure had to be
included in the original blueprints for the walls of the bathroom.

Hello beautiful, clean, bright white bathroom I have been dreaming about!

A few little things still left to be done.
Deciding on a ribbon for the drawers is one. I love this idea.
I saw it in a magazine and on this blog.
I’m just having a hard time finding the perfect one.

I really like the blue.

I like the white too.
But probably the blue more.
Just not sure if I like that particular blue….

Definitely not the yellow.

Painting the little mirror on the floor.
It’s for little people who can’t see in the big one since
the vanity is quite a bit higher than it used to be.

The picture frame on the wall needs something in it and
we’ll probably put in a small towel bar on the opposite wall.

The little houses in the birdcage need a new shade of blue paint.
They’re a shade that’s too far off everything else in there.

And I’ve been eyeing a couple of wire baskets
to put underneath the sink for towels.

Hello? Hello?? Hard to tear your eyes away, isn’t it? Isn’t it beautiful? I love the buffet as the vanity, don’t you? Thanks, Chocolate Monday (Janet), for sharing your fabulous vanity makeover! I look forward to seeing more. And thanks for the cookies!
