You remember the wine rack bathroom right? It’s right off of the family room.
This is not the wine rack bathroom. It’s what the wine rack bathroom wants to be when it gets out of college and grows up.
So you may remember I took down the wine rack above the bathroom sink/mirror.
Once the wine rack was down I removed the double stick tape frame from around the mirror since it was now several inches too short.
So we were left with a really large builders grade mirror in a truly tiny space.
In yet another unfortunate builder grade DIY the large mirror is not attached to the wall with clips. It is securely and permanently epoxied to the wall itself. If I want to remove the mirror the wall will have to come with it.
At this time that is not an option. So plan B is to once again frame out the mirror but this time do it RIGHT! Then add a prettier mirror on top of it. Kind of like this:
So the good news is that the yucky toilet and mildewed linoleum has been replaced.
Mr. Décor is in the process of adding all new baseboards. You can also see that the bad gas station bathroom walls received several coats of “Gustavian Blue” by Ralph Lauren and all the trim was painted “Du Jour” by Valspar.
But a funny things happened…the sink didn’t look THAT bad when the walls were bad gas station bathroom brown…
But once the fresh paint was up on the walls the sink just looked yellowed and really grungy. $%#*&#!!!!!!
So I researched for ways to update the sink and found a few tutorials. To buy the epoxy, pre cleaner, brushes, etc. I would be looking at around a $60 investment and about 6 hours of my time. The problem is that quite a few of the reviews on Ace Hardware and other sites mention that within a few months the product chips off.
So back to square 1. We need to update our 30 year old sink. Which might mean some drywall repair issues when we take it out. Sigh. We are looking to replace it with this $98 sink.
If the vanity survives the sink install it will be getting a few coats of #3 Ralph Lauren “Club Navy”.
I think touches of silver will pair nicely with the blue and white.
For the window I want to keep things simple such as a white Roman shade perhaps with a touch of navy.
I’d better get to work.
