I have no really good before pics as it turns out, but this kind of shows where we started. Nothing majorly wrong with it but that vanity was taking up a lot of floor space in our tiny bathroom. Not to mention that the kids have flooded the sink a few times and the laminated wood was warped and moldy in places. The medicine cabinet was showing it's age as well so I decided to remove it, too.
So much more room to move in here. My husband and I can actually pass each other in here now without having to squeeze :) And nothing will warp if the kids are being naughty with the sink again. This cute little pedestal sink was only $60 at Home Depot.
The wall to the left looks empty to me but I decided to not fill it with stuff right now. Even though we have no immediate plans to sell I'm thinking about re-sell and "keeping my walls bare" for now. Besides, that wall is usually covered by the bathroom entry door anyway so it's not like I see it very often unless we have guests (we have an open door policy in our family, sorry for the TMI :))
A pretty trash can and a basket for the loo paper replaces the storage we used the vanity for. But it looks so much prettier than a vanity :)
I really wanted to get a new light fixture in here. Something modern-ish with square shades is what I had in mind. Turns out they're incredibly expensive and since this vanity bar light works just fine I decided to do a hack instead. It cost me exactly $3 to make.
The look I was going for in the bathroom was a mix of the girly colorful stuff I like tempered with more modern, rustic and masculine elements. I kind of feel like I succeeded, what do you think? And do you like it? I often find myself trying to judge my stuff objectively and not really succeeding and that's where your opinions come in handy :) What would you do differently in here?
Wish you a great rest of the week, I'm busy trying to keep the kids happy (it's spring break here). See you!
