Old homes are filled with so much charm but are also filled with old vintage bathrooms. When we bought this house we always knew the girls bathroom would need some love. The tub doesn’t have a shower head, the floor tile has a huge crack but the hardest part with two kids? The sink.
The faucet leaked and was very short so hard for little arms to reach. And a pedestal sink is just not going to work for two girls sharing a bathroom long term.
Not wanting to throw $1000’s into the girls bathroom right now but knowing it needed a little face lift we decided the best approach would be to replace the sink. So I set off to find a new vanity so the girls would have some much needed storage and a more functional sink. So I headed to Wayfair.
My first task was the vanity and sink. I had measured the space and knew I wanted the sink offset on the left side with drawers to the right. The Ryland 36″ sink was my winning choice. I loved the square white sink and the soft brass colored hardware was the feminine touch I was looking for.
Next on the agenda the faucet. I knew I wanted to switch the faucet to a single handle so it would be easier for the girls to turn on and control the temperature themselves. (YAY for independent hand washing!) We went with this simple modern faucet in a beautiful brushed brass.
The vintage medicine cabinet was so beautiful it had to stay but we upgraded the lighting with a more modern vanity light in gold to compliment the other hardware. When I found this light with the name Yosef I knew it was our winner.
We will maybe do a more full makeover down the road but we wanted to do something now that wouldn’t break the bank and would make the space function way more efficiently. And I’m so pleased with the results. All of this was completed for $1000 and makes the world of difference not only to the look of the bathroom but the function.
Now what will the next project be?
