|I'm still keeping my eye out for another beauty like this.|
Normally, I'd be right there with you. But I figured I could paint it and it would give off the appropriate vibe I was going for in the downstairs bathroom for a very affordable price.
As I have mentioned numerous times, I am an old house renovator blog addict. One of my absolute favourite blogs is called Vivacious Victorian. And nerd that I am, I went back recently to re-read the entire thing. That's when I stumbled across this post detailing how they renovated their master bathroom in one of their previous houses. I had to laugh out loud when I noticed this picture and the associated caption:

But I had a plan!!!
Our downstairs bathroom just needs to be functional. I want it to be as pretty as I can get it for the limited budget it deserves right now, but ultimately, function comes first (and that kills me to say because for years I've stated "fashion over comfort"). I have BIG plans for it to look amazing down the road, but we just need a bathroom that will work for us while we save and plan our master bath.
That's why we are using the old tub from upstairs.
|The tub has been moved from room to room since it was taken from the bathroom upstairs. And it's kind of become a contained dumping ground lol|
|A little mix and match!|
"This light is $10. We do not have a light for that room yet. If I paint this light, this light could totally work. Let's buy this light."
Last week I officially decided I would paint it! This was mostly so I could write a blog post that wasn't about blocking again.
|The teaser I posted of the prep work.|
I have to say that I'm really liking how it's coming. Hopefully I can finish it this week (if the weather would just COOPERATE!!!) and show you how it turned out. I am pretty confident that this was one of those ideas where I wasn't crazy after all, but you can be the judge of that I guess.
