I don’t blame you if you forgot. After all I began the project back in March. If you remember there were all sorts of setbacks. But basically this was the “BEFORE”. Brown yucky cabinets, old faucets, a nasty vanity top…you get the idea.
Let’s talk about artwork. Two things my daughter LOVES is velvet and daisies. She was born in April which the flower is the daisy. We were looking for art that would fit in with the yellow, grey and white color palette. If you remember, Sarah Richardson’s bathroom was our inspiration. Sort of a delicious country meets modern design.
I think a touch of black in a room makes things elegant. We spied this little daisy loving girl in a gold and black velvet frame at an estate sale for $4. The Fashionista loved her 60’s era bouffant hairdo so she came home with us.
I really shopped around for options. The entire process almost deserves its own post. Given that the condo was built in the early 80’s I could not just buy an “off the shelf” sink vanity. It was a custom size. You know what that means~ $$$. I checked out granite, engineered stone, and laminate. In the end we went with a cultured marble vanity top by St. Paul in white. It took 15 days to be delivered.
The towels and hand lotion were found on clearance at HomeGoods. The various soaps were gifts. I nestled them on a silver tray I bought years ago in an after Christmas sale at Target. The glass dish was my great grandmothers that held her sewing pins and the crystal cup belonged to my grandpa Roy.
A grand total of $526.95. Yippee indeed!
