The Gift of Granite

J and I decided to go practical this Christmas by agreeing to complete some annoying home improvement projects.  One such project was the kids’ bathroom vanity.  We had remodeled the bathroom a couple of years ago when we found a water leak in the wall due to the crappy shower plumbing.  The entire bathroom was gutted.  We put in a travertine floor and shower, a new fiberglass tub, a new toilet, brushed nickel hardware, white molding around the existing mirror and new cabinets.  We lost steam and funds when it came to replacing the 80’s marble vanity top.  We simply set the old counter top back on the new cabinets.  Ghetto, I know but it worked for us for a couple of years.

Here’s a before photo of the kids’ bathroom.  This was taken before we bought the house.  I don’t claim this decor at all.  You should have seen the rest of the house!

Here’s the after.  Kindly ignore the kid grime on the mirror.

Yep, we went from one pitiful sink to two brand spanking new ones!  The kids don’t fight over the faucets or the step stool anymore!  Yeah!

I’m so happy to have this project checked off the list.  Now if I can just get J to put in a pool…
