We are in the midst of putting a double vanity in our master bathroom. This is truly exciting, an 11 year process for Peter and I, exactly 10 years and 11 months, 3 weeks, and 6 days to make the decision to actually do it, justify the money, and exactly 1 day to find something we both like. (17 years of marriage and we are getting this compromise thing down!) Just stage it in the garage, have the plumber come and replumb for 2 sinks instead of 1, and put it in, maybe repaint (finally!).
Um, hold it right there. Not so fast.
We now have a plumber, an electrician, a friend who's handy, a friend of a friend who's possibly handy, all joining in. The power is completely cut off of that room, just look at my tub and its "light"-
This was taken on Sunday, middle of the day, but it was cloudy and rainy. That's the only light we have in there to speak of.
You can imagine what my makeup must look like at this point.
Nothing is ever easy is it?
I really don't mean to complain. We are so lucky to have this bathroom all to ourselves. In our previous house, our bedroom was so small we needed fairies to decorate it, not even an inkling of hope for a bathroom. We stood sideways just to get between the dresser and the bed. So having this bathroom as part of our bedroom is really wonderful. It was fitted by the previous owners before we bought the house and, overall, I really like what they did. Its neutral, white (love white bathrooms) and the hexagonal floor tile is classic, works with everything. But they put in one pedestal sink. Made no sense. There is ample room for a double vanity, and there is no storage with a pedestal sink. So, we are really glad this is all finally happening.
But in the meantime I will think about how every little thing costs money and will continue to nervous crochet more grannies each night.
At this rate I will soon have enough of these to cover a king sized bed.
Thank you for all the really nice feedback on the granny tutorial, by the way!
This week I am also thinking about Emma's room. Now that she's a teenager and all, her room depserately needs an update. (But first it desperately needs a huge cleanout.) I have been collecting ideas on a pinterest board just for her room. Its going to be so fun to collaborate with her on this!
But did I mention that first it needs a huge cleanout?
