Sink Skirt Search

So.  This morning I spied this photo on Facebook,

from this fab biz in Franklin, TN.

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:

OOH:

I really want to make a red check skirt in our kitchen!  Stay tuned!

So.

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

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!

Thank you.

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,

Fabric.com!!

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:

fabric-stripe-try-two

Magnolia Home stripe

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.

Stay tuned!
