Vanity Fair

Shortly after we got the toilet installed, it was onto the vanity.  I was suuuper excited for this part because it's such a finishing touch part of a reno that gives a lot of impact, never mind function.  So we left off with just a toilet in there, like this...

Last summer we picked up this IKEA Hemnes dresser and it's been sitting in its box for the better part of a year.  How good it felt to tear into the box and start assembling it!

God bless Ikea and the simplicity of their instructions and assembly!

Once the frame was done, Darryl drilled it into the wall and attached the sink...

Then the drawers and faucet went in...oooooh, aaaaahhhh...

And because the bathroom is so teeny tiny and it is hard to get a full view of everything, I had to take the same pictures from a different angle.  I was so excited to have this done that I went a little camera happy.

  1. It looks great! I'm sure it will be nice to have all that extra storage, too. We almost finished our privacy fence this weekend - panels are up, but the posts still need to be trimmed down. Definitely took longer than we thought it would, but that always seems to be the way with us ;)
