Mini Bathroom Redo

Remember how I was just saying how I should pick up some flowers at the grocery store? Well, someone must be reading my blog because someone brought some home when he went to get coffee. They’re like a burst of sunshine during these cold and rainy days.

Taking indoor shots is not easy when there are so many shadows but I gave it a try. Love the green in the center of the daisies.

Okay, one more with a little texture thrown in.

Today was spent working on the upstairs bathroom. Son #3 has now sprouted to 6’2” tall and I don’t think he’s done. The vanity in his bathroom was only 29” high. He looked like Will Ferrell in Elf using that sink. It has bugged me since we moved in. For one thing, the previous owners redid that bathroom. Everything in that bathroom was new except that teeny tiny midget vanity. Why? Why would people do such a thing? You are spending all that money just go all the way.

Here is the before. I wish I had gotten a shot of him in front of the sink so you could see just how much he had to bend over. It was a little comical.
My new Purdy 6 in 1 tool came in very handy. It has a nice comfy grip and we used it to get the granite top off since we are reusing it.

Oh yeah, someone has a cast on his right hand. I had to get in there and let him borrow my hand. It’s the least I could do after someone got me those pretty flowers. With my two hands, #3’s two hands and hubby’s one good hand we got it installed.

I’ll show you more later. I have to clean and do some wall repair and replace the trim. I also have to decide on whether I’m painting the new cabinet. I know, it’s new, why am I painting it? I do like it but it’s hickory and I’m not sure how I feel about the grain with that granite top. I got a super good deal on it. Super good. Just going to sit on it for a bit and then decide. I’ll be back!

see ya,



  1. How sweet to wake up to flowers! Beautiful shots, btw!

    Will Ferrell and Elf... HA! Very good visual! Good luck with the bathroom remodel! You have a nice vanity to work with, if you decide to paint it. I think it looks nice, as is, too.

  6. Well, hickory does have a heavy grain and I'd never judge anyone for painting anything, even if it's new.
    I don't know why they even make cabinets that short.

    I love the daisies. They're just sunshine in a vase.

  7. Woot! surprise flowers!
    awwww hubby is a sweetie
    you are doing great with the new camera
    nice DoF and that tight shot of the yellow one is great.
    good that the sink top is a nice one, and you don't have to replace that also.

  8. Awww, beautiful flowers!! How sweet is he!? Love your photos too, very pretty and so summery!!! I can't wait to see the reveal, I am sure that he is happy that he doesn't have to bend down anymore!!

  9. Haha! I love that movie! Yes, he does need a taller sink to match his height. What a treat it is to see those flowers Anita.
