Day 275's purchases

Let the bathroom remodel begin! We bought all of the tile, the sink and shower hardware, the new toilet, and two vanities for the master bath this weekend. You read that correctly, I said two vanities ...

After a couple weeks in the house, we decided against the pedestal sink in favor of at least a little bit of storage space. Problem is, we have only 19 inches to work with, and most ready-made models are at least 21 inches deep. Below is purchase #1, bought at Home Depot on Saturday afternoon:

It's two inches too deep on it's own, and with a counter would be almost three. But we liked it, and I was determined not to settle for one of these crazy, but space-effective things.

On Sunday, we hit up Lowe's for the cute toilet and the floor tiles, and we come home with this guy:

It looks a bit dark here, but it's about the same color as the first one. It's nice and simple with recessed-panel doors, and will have white top and chrome hardware (and that's Maddie's cute little dip-stick tail). More storage space, $100 cheaper, and only 19 inches deep -- hooray! Bathroom vanity success, finally.

Don't worry, we haven't completely abandoned the original plan. We're still going with white tile, and we're going to try to put my favorite mirror in there. After we figure out if the mirror will work, I'll get some lighting options together. Demo began this weekend and will continue until Saturday, when Wes' dad arrives to help us get started! Stay tuned for our progress.

I would love to know the name of the second vanity. My master bath has the same tile as yours except its pepto bismol pink and black!

Hi! I got your comment... the color is "quill" by olympic... but I don't really recommend Olympic paint - it was pretty poor quality! The color is pretty but just wasn't what I was looking for.

As for my header- I found the image on google images! Simple enough! :)

The 1st vanity is the one we're getting for our bathroom remodel!! We have a tiny space, but didn't want a pedestal sink, so this vanity was the compromise.
Can't wait to see it all come together for you!
