We found a vanity that fit at Lowe's, but about 45 minutes into the installation, Duane decided it just wouldn't cut the mustard....so back in the truck it went. Trips to two different Home Depot's finally yielded a cabinet in the correct size and acceptable quality, and by afternoon, Duane had it installed. I spent the day painting........the second coat on the entry, the front door (that is too light, and needs to be darkened), and the new darker paint for the back bedroom. And running around looking for this and that for different projects in the house. My mom is busy sewing curtains and other odds and ends. We didn't finish work until 8:30 tonight.
But the good news is, the hall bath is nearly complete. It will be a huge relief to have at least one space in the house that is totally complete. I took a rushed trip to some of my favorite spots around town to see if I could find something to hang over where the new towel rack will be hung. The bathroom is very fine materials, marble, polished chrome, and white subway tile, so I wanted something rustic to contrast all the polished surfaces. I ended up with this great little rusty metal basket, that I picked up at the D.I. for $1.00!!!! I'm not kidding! A dollar. I can't show any more of the bathroom until the whole thing is ready to be revealed.
I found a few other D.I. treasures as well. My total bill was $4.50. I got these cute little vintage pottery dip bowls, that totally go with the rest of my turquoise pottery collection.
I'm going to sell the vintage TV dinner tray and the adorable measuring cups on EBAY. And now I am off to shower and get in bed. I AM EXHAUSTED!
