Well, y’all, I got up this morning and thought, “Hmmm…I have nothing to share on my blog today,” so I went about my business and got my day started. Then I remembered! I came across something the other day, and I’ve been so stinkin’ excited to share it with you!
Okay, that’s probably too much of a build up. It’s probably only that exciting to me. But I was so inspired when I found it the other day that I was almost ready to go straight into my hallway bathroom and start ripping tiles off the wall so that I could get started on a bathroom remodel.
But I didn’t. I used some self-control. 🙂
Anyway, for a while now I’ve thought that I want to use an interesting piece of furniture as the bathroom vanity in my hallway bathroom. If you’ll remember, the reason I originally purchased the antique credenza, which is now green with amazing pieced wood drawers, is because I wanted to use it in there as a vanity.
That ended up being way too big for that bathroom. The space available for a vanity is quite small.
I have a couple of other pieces that I thought might work, but none of them really thrilled me, and they both have much more of a country look to them.
But then just a couple of days ago, I was rummaging though my garage and I came across a table that my mom gave me just a few months ago. When she asked me if I wanted it, I had no idea what I would do with it, but I thought it was way too pretty to pass up. So it’s just been sitting in my garage. But when I came across it again, it dawned on me that it would make an absolutely gorgeous vanity!
Isn’t that pretty?! Oh, those spiral legs! And look at the ball and claw feet.
And I think all of the detail on this table is just so pretty.
Now the downside is that I will have to cut the table in order to use it. There’s no way that the whole thing will fit in the bathroom. But I can cut it so that it’s deep enough to hold a sink, and shallow enough to fit the space. And I’ll still be able to use two of those amazing legs on the front of the vanity. The back will have to be attached to the wall for support.
I think it will be gorgeous. I love it when I come across treasures in my own garage that I can actually use in this house, especially when they were free! 🙂
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
