Today I want to let you peek into my powder room again. Over the weekend I finished another project.
I tackled the ugly vinyl kick plate. While kick plate design serves a purpose in the kitchen, I’m not thrilled about the kitchen cabinet look in my bathrooms. So I decided to rip the vinyl off and build the bottom out, to give it the look of a custom built-in or dresser. I like it much better now. (I hate that the floor is built around the vanity)
Let me walk you through what I did:
Then I painted it and voila here is the vanity after:
It looks new and fresh. I think it’s so much better. And it’s called working with what you have.
Hey speaking of what you have, can you believe that we have had a smaller piece of white marble in our garage for 13 years now that we never used? We got it as a house warming gift from a friend but it was never used.
Why? You are asking why? Take a guess? It would involve my hubby, because it is so heavy that I can’t move it. And since we are not a DIY couple it never gets done. I have been wanting to use it as a vanity top but couldn’t find help to get it done. Maybe if I call him out on it publicly now, he’ll make a move. Sure would look nice!
|Yes, another Hobby Lobby knob.|
Don’t you think the vanity looks much better without the kick plate? And it didn’t cost much. Only one 2×4 and a small piece of molding. Hey, did you know by the way that you are allowed to cut your molding at Home Depot and only buy as much as you need but you can’t do that at Lowes? Love that.
Talk to you on Friday fellow webbers.
Tschüss und guten Tag.
