When it comes to decorating my house I have to say my train of thought is a little all over the place. One little purchase can send me in a completely different direction. Which is what happened in my powder room.
I've always thought the novelty of vessel sinks would wear off quickly, so they weren't even on my radar.
But I saw this mirror at my local thrift store for $25 and LOVED it. It immediately made me think of Brooke and Steve Gianetti's world famous bathroom.
So then I thought I HAVE to find a vintage/antique table for the vanity
and I HAVE to use a vessel sink.
I found this little table with a lower shelf and drawer at a little antiques mall.
Once the old sink was removed it was obvious that the new table wasn't as high, and wouldn't cover the spot w/o wallpaper (and I didn't have enough paper to redo that area).
My contractor said he could cut a piece of wood and paint it white
so it would blend in to the wallpaper.
I decided the demilune would have to be painted white too
so it would look like all one piece.
The faucet came with the sink and was ordered from Overstock.com. so I really didn't put a whole lot of thought into that.
I found this Steuben ashtray at the flea market a while ago.
It's the perfect soap dish.
The baskets in the back are holding the extra TP.
I found them about a year ago at Ross and now I need to find one more
bigger one for the bottom.
(I'm not holding my breath though.)
The little vintage chandelier came from the same antiques mall as the table. It was only $50!
So far I've had mostly positive feedback.
