Remember last week when I shared that I was planning to do a wall of antiqued mirror tiles behind my vanity? The good news is I got all of the mirrors successfully antiqued and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
The not so good news is that we haven't had a chance to install the tiles on the wall yet. :-( .
In other news, the wall repair has been a huge undertaking. There has been sanding and more sanding followed up by more sanding. And you know how awful that superfine sheet rock dust is. My husband came out of the bathroom on Sunday looking like a powdered donut.
Here's something positive. The box molding has been added to the lower third of the walls (Yay)
and I'm thinking that rather than painting it out white, I'm may just paint the wainscoting a shade of blue that's slightly darker than the blue in the wallpaper.
Benjamin Moore Buxton Blue in particular. What do you think about that idea? Do you like the idea of painting the wainscoting blue or would you paint it white?
I'm also struggling with whether to go with a vessel sink or a drop-in sink for my antique piece turned bathroom vanity. Originally I had planned go with a drop-in sink but after consulting with Professor Pinterest, I think the vessel sinks look so much better in this situation. Look:
Don't you agree? I think the vessel sink looks so much better.
This is all of the progress I have to share with you today. Things should really start to come together next week (really!) as the mirror wall will be installed, the rest of the trim will be installed and painted, and I'm hoping to get the paper up and the vanity placed. It's an ambitious list.
Say a quick prayer for me and be sure to tune in next Thursday. To find the links to all of the other participants, click here and here .
