Now that the tile is up + running in our bathrooms,
it’s finally time for us to choose our vanities.
Let’s start with the main bath, downstairs:
There’s room for a 36″ vanity, which will sit to the right of the toilet.
Above it we’ll hang this ginormous medicine cabinet from IKEA:
I have big plans for a custom re-do for it, involving crown molding.
Of course, I will share later, as that’s how I roll.

Back to the vanity.
As I type, G.O. is headed to our local build-o-rama, Menards,
where he will order our awesome vanity!

First, let’s have a look-see at something I briefly considered:
I know — how awesome is that farmhouse sink!?
About a week ago or so, I posted this photo on my FB page,
where it received many favorable comments + likes!
“So, why did you not choose it?” you ask?
Well, that farmhouse sink maybe the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,
Who needs a huge, deep sink in the bathroom?
I can think of only one good reason, + here she is:
If I could bathe Chloe the Dachshund in a deep farmhouse sink like that,
there’d be no more on-my-hands-and-knees at the bathtub, already!
But back to the cons.
Look at the counter space, or lack thereof:
I’m pretty sure that this would be
what G.O. calls “all ‘looks’ — no function” or something derogatory.
And speaking of which, check out this very funny naysayer-in-training!
It seems G.O. has a 9-year-old apprentice!
So early, the boys learn the fine art of nixing everything we like!
(I’m sure he’ll make someone a very fine husband, one day!) . . .
. . . because look how cute he is,
posing next to the vintage-style refrigerator I want!

But back to the vanity.
This is kind of perfect for our hacienda, don’tcha think?
It checks off all my bathroom vanity hopes + dreams,
which include the following:
1. Designed like furniture, with the legs
2. Shaker-style doors
3. Marble top with an expensive-looking ogee edge!
4. Cool, rectangular under mount sink!
Another disclaimer: that faucet, mercifully, is not included.
I must have something with cross handles!
Anyway. Back to our vanity.
As I mentioned previously, it looks expensive.
It’s not. The regular price (at Menards) is a mere $599!
It’s currently on sale at a mere $499!
Wow, it’s going to look great, so of course, I can’t wait!
Stay tuned, as always!
