(Practically) Finishing the bathroom vanity

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen that we're picking up a bit of speed with regards to projects around the house.

I would like to talk about those projects.

But instead, I have been a lazy bum who is still rambling about a vanity that was started in December... DECEMBER!!!!!!!! (And consequently was finished - a term here used loosely - in April)

So today, I came to the conclusion that I must get on with it and become a relative writing machine.

All in the hopes that I don't lose steam and can fill you in on the banister project upstairs (yay!).

Yay for something going right on the first try!

Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel

Here's the thing... getting to the point in any project where the dirty/disgusting or the practical-but-not-really-that-fun element is done is fantastic. Because that is where the pretty comes into play. Everyone likes the pretty. Everyone. Those super macho men or lazily indifferent people? Even THEY like the pretty, they just don't even realize they do.

The pretty is the part of a project where you get to do something that suddenly sheds some real-world light on an idea that previously existed only in your head. It is the first element that will be seen AFTER the project is finished.

*sniffle* The end was almost in sight!
