The space either side of the vanity really bothered me, it was a trap for dirt and the vanity top didn't have enough space to place anything like a liquid soap dispenser. Not to mention the taps leaked at some stage and the inside and back of the cupboard was stained and starting to rot.
Ever since we moved in I have kept an eye out for something we could use to replace the existing vanity. I was hoping to find an older piece of furniture to convert into a vanity but a few weekends ago Mitre 10 (hardware store) was having a sale and in their catalogue was the perfect sized vanity including ceramic top for $299.
While we were there we also found a Dorf basin tap set marked down from $247.50 to $30. Thank you very much!
The handles that came with the vanity were too modern to suit us so we picked up these four from Bunnings. Unfortunately they were not a bargain at $9.95 each, but they suited us and made a huge difference.
Nick spent Saturday and Sunday afternoon making the switch and we are both so happy with the difference. The bathroom is not big by any means and this vanity makes such a difference in the amount of floor space when you walk in.
We are still to get a glass shower screen installed and are just waiting on another quote. I would have liked to get a clear glass screen however the glass will have to sit as close to the vanity as possible and we will have a small gap between the glass and the vanity that will be impossible to keep clean. I know that it will bug me seeing the dust gather there and not be able to clean it properly so we will have to get frosted glass, that way it won't be visible!I am linking up to White Wednesday at the Faded Charm. Head over to have a look.
I know it is such a little thing but it makes such a difference! WH and I were so happy we sat on the bathtub on Sunday evening and just admired the new vanity!
Have a great Wednesday everyone!
