So. Today we re-measured the kitchen for cabs.
This means that I shall spend the rest of the day sketching.
But first, let’s go back to our powder room.
My goal for it is that the room looks old,
as if it was original to our Dutch colonial.
I think my design looks old enough,
but I need to be choosy about the remaining accessories.
First up, the mirror.
Here’s one from Pottery Barn that I like.
It’s the Kensington Pivot Rectangular mirror @ $179.
It does look somewhat vintage,
but we’re opting for this, instead:
It came with a garage sale dresser for which we paid a mere $75.
Look at the beautiful natural wood grain:
So. It not only looks more vintage than the PB one,
it’s a lot less expensive.
I like that.
Now let’s move to the shelf portion of my powder room design.
Once again, from Pottery Barn — their Sussex shelf.
$47 – $55 on sale, with free shipping.
While it would look perfectly lovely,
I preferred something genuinely old.
Off to etsy, where I always have good luck!
Here’s what I chose:
With shipping, I paid a mere $33.
G.O. kindly held it in place for me this a.m.
Does he like it? Well, no, but I have faith that he will, eventually,
once the room is all tricked out + finished.

Let’s have a look-see at yet another vintage bathroom necessity
that I found (on etsy, again!) months ago.
It’s a darling, old porcelain towel bar.
Here ’tis, held in place on the side of our vanity:
OR, we might opt for hanging it on the wall, to the left of the vanity.
The only accessory that remains is the over-the-sink light fixture.
You probably won’t be surprised
that I’ve got something vintage planned there, as well.
