So. This morning I spied this photo on Facebook,
I think I gasped a bit. Really.
Tell me you do the same thing.
I thought to myself, “That fabric! How perfect! How timely!”
You see, for months, I’ve been searching for fabric,
as our powder room vanity desperately needs a skirt.
See for yourselves:
Naturally, as one does when one needs inspiration for one’s project,
I headed straight to Pinterest.
Most of the bathroom skirts I saw involved wall-hung sinks or pedestals;
I think this one was particularly epic:
Since I needed a skirt for my vanity cabinet,
I soon switched my search to kitchen sink skirts:
I really want to make a red check skirt in our kitchen! Stay tuned!
+ + + + +
Even though I’d given my powder room skirt the green light,
I couldn’t decide what fabric to use!
So many mind-boggling choices!!
Then, luckily, this happened:
Recently, I bought 6 of these pretty blue + white transferware plates,
from this antiques shop, in my southern Illinois girlhood homeland:
The Loose Caboose
IL Rt. 127 in Donnelson, Illinois.
+ + + +
Once I arrived home with said plates,
it only took a day or two to decide to hang them in our powder room,
on the panel to the mirror’s right, above the toilet:
(I’d already been toying with that idea for a while.)
“But Kay!” you are no doubt saying.
“Didn’t you already hang some vintage plates in your main bathroom?”
Yes, I did, + here they are:
Naturally, self doubt ensued.
Would it be wrong to hang plates in both our bathrooms???
No, it is not, + here’s why:
I am creating a “theme” for our bathrooms, + “themes” are good!
+ + + + +
Meanwhile, back to my sink skirt dilemma!
Which pattern fabric to choose?!?
I had a light bulb moment earlier this morning!
Remember the beautiful chairs that I spied?
That’s it! BLUE AND WHITE FLORAL, please!
So. In my world, when one needs to buy just the right fabric,
I head over to my favorite online fabric store,
Anyway, here are my finalists.
Tell me what you think!
First, the florals:
If I can’t commit to floral (slightly out of my comfort zone),
another contender is my all-time favorite, the check:
Another fave, the stripes:
Or, if I really want to have FUN, this:
I KNOW!!!??? Insanely FUN! Right?
The proverbial jury is still out, + I’ve not yet made up my mind.
I might persuade G.O. to help me hang the plates, later today.
