So, we now have the painter scheduled...he comes on Monday!! Yay!
Tomorrow, Kobi is coming and attaching the doors to the vanity and the molding on top of the beadboard...and the sinks are already functioning....
Today, I wanted to tell you about some little things that count in the bathroom.
One is a soap dish for the shower. I bought this months ago. It is based on the expensive teak soap dishes with little character that I have seen, and those don't hold the soap we buy.
I bought this beautiful handmade cedar dish from Andrewsreclaimed.etsy.com. I love that is made here in the US and is handmade. And, he has designed it to fit the many Etsy soap makers soaps out there.
It will get that aged patina over time, I like that too.
The other thing, soap. We buy a handmade soap from AuntNancysSoap.etsy.com. I have been buying soap from her for at least a couple of years because so many soaps out there have additives that I am allergic to, and hers do not.
The drawer pulls I bought from Violetteslippers.etsy.com. This little shop has a huge collection of hardware collected from old pieces. It is great fun. The thinking was we wanted the vanity to look "old" and old drawer pulls would do that. We also chose these because we wanted them to fold flat as the vanity is deeper than it used to be. (Remember the pictures in the beginning? It was 17" deep.) Now it is 22" deep...The handles were an old brass, and I gave them a shot of Rust-o-leum's Oil Rubbed Bronze spray....leaving just a touch of the brass showing to tell their history.
So, as you can see, I like to buy from Etsy. I also sell on Etsy. It has almost everything you could need and then many things you didn't know you needed.
Have a great evening.
