Half bathroom remodel

The half bathroom renovation is probably our favorite renovation to date. It is the one that we spent a lot of time figuring out all the electrical issues that needed to be addressed. I am not a fan of windowsills so we opted to just frame out the window. I love how it turned out.

The light was the choice of hubby since the overhead light (not pictured) was going to remain.

As for the vanity, well..... that was a major discussion. I have no photos of what we started with and believe you me it wasn't updated since the early 1970's. In fact what was in there was built in place at the time. It was a vanity that looked like there was much storage but there really wasn't. When it came time to decide on what to put in, we first went with a pedestal sink, kinda a mistake. Thinking that the bathroom was too small for anything else we soon realized we had no place for towels, toiletries, etc. The idea of the dresser/vanity sink has always been a dream of mine. So we went for it. This little beauty was found on craigslist. The sink was purchased on off from craigstlist. The faucet I found on Overstock.com. I absolutely love it all. While I realize that the dresser isn't exactly what someone would want in there it was rather inexpensively compared to buying a new vanity piece for $500+. The storage that we acquired is more than adequate.


  1. Beautiful! I agree that the dresser is perfect for this space, and I love the sink.

  2. Teri, I LOVE this vanity! What a wonderful renovation. I'm so glad I stumbled upon your new blog - you should have told me you took the plunge! I have MUCH catching up to do here... : )

  3. Love the outcome of that bathroom!
