The downstairs bathroom is still in a state of demolition, but I can see things starting to take shape! Evan and I are both off work for the next 6 days (!), and we’re hoping to get a lot of work done on the house.
My mother and I have been passing this antique mirror back and forth for the past 10 years (we both tend to be a little…fickle *cough* when it comes to, well, everything), and I’m reclaiming it now for the bathroom. I don’t mind that the silver has deteriorated so much—it looks nice, and frankly, I’d rather see less of myself in the mornings than more. Real-life retouching!
We also decided to buy the smaller ÅNN sink from IKEA rather than the one we’d been planning on. I’d been wishing for quite some time that I could buy the small one, but until recently it wasn’t available in North America. Weirdly, IKEA still does not have it on their US or Canadian websites or catalogs, nor is it on display in Paramus. Employees don’t even seem to know about it, but they have it in stock! I actually found out that it was available totally by accident—the IKEA guy was looking up the larger sink for me, and I saw the small one in the stock list while I was peeking over his shoulder.
We’ve also ordered our toilet, and we have a junk guy coming early next week to haul away all of our construction debris. So exciting! I don’t want to jinx anything, but it’s looking like this bathroom is going to come together a lot more quickly than the other one did. PHEW!
