House Project.

This blog is quickly becoming about decorating, and not much about anything else... sorry... it's just a good place for me to compile all my disjointed thoughts and ideas! I saw THIS bathroom today, and I've got a guest bath in the new house that's pretty much the same size and shape... and it desperately needs attention soon because the doors on the vanity are broken off. No, I'm not going to paint mine purple, but I do love the board and batten idea... I wanted to incorporate it somewhere in the new house! Maybe I can make new cabinet doors (Dad?) in this shaker style (my favorite door profile anyway) and paint the cabinet black like this too... this will be a good test for the master bath...
Problem is, the toilet and bath are bright white, and the countertop is cream. Grrr. How do you match both?

Just get a new sink/counter prefab from Home Depot or Lowes. They are not very expensive, have same style as the existing sink and they are available in bright white. Plus super easy to install, I just did one at mom's.

If you don't want to replace a perfectly good countertop you could make the two different colors of white work in that room by selecting a shower curtain that has both a cream and a white color on it with darker accents to compliment the darker vanity (if you plan to paint the vanity the darker color shown in the photo).

I have plans to do something similar with our guest bath on the main floor. Now I just have to muster up the desire to start painting again.
