|Our pretty new light!|
Voila! Less than 50 bucks and a some elbow grease invested, and I'm thrilled with the result! The giant mirror and new light make the room seem much brighter – a huge plus, since its the only room in the house without natural light. Painting the vanity hid the water stains and gave it a clean, matching look that makes all the difference.
|Where the color scheme came from.|
Although we've talked about someday replacing the cheap vinyl floor with proper tile and popping window in over the shower so there's natural light, we're well content with the room as it stands now. It's clean, coherent, and reflects the kind of calm and welcoming demeanor we want for our house. With the hikes in taxes and gas prices, we've been reevaluating what house projects we can realistically expect to get done this year. But that's okay; after doing this project I am reminded that it isn't the size of the project that matters – it's the satisfaction you get from it that counts. I'll be okay with a handful of smaller projects if they all feel this rewarding.
