What takes most of the day and lots of patience? Deciding and installing trim on the bath vanity.
I had HUGE HIGH HOPES today to accomplish a lot more.
I went to Lowes to scope out a faucet and a new vessel sink. The one I originally bought had a defect. Always check the box before leaving the store!
I ended up buying the exact same vessel sink and the only vessel faucet in chrome they had.
My cart was loaded up with wood and supplies and I was now on a mission.
However, funny thing happened once I got home. I decided I wanted a NAP. Hey, it's a holiday and a girl deserves a nap.
A little while later, I got my act together. Slowly.
There were moments I was tempted to pitch the vanity again, but I broke out some scrap molding.
A lot of hammering and tugging and I yanked out the broken toe kick. I prayed the whole cabinet wouldn't fall apart. While the toe kick was off I discovered how lazy my tile guy was. The tile is installed underneath the cabinet, except for one whole tile in the far right corner. What??? Go figure considering I had a entire box of tiles left. Oh and there is no grout underneath either. LAZY.
Trial and error with many different moldings, I found some floor molding to make a new toe kick.
Happy dance, but a little boring.
Some cove type trim that I found in my stash helped perk up the vanity. Some boards on the side panel also started to bring this vanity to life.
I picked up these little feet at Lowes. The screw came right out once I clamped my Hubs vice around it. They fit perfectly. No kidding.
I have a lot of nail filling, caulking and painting to do, but I am liking the look of the vanity. The bummer of the day, however, soon appeared...the faucet came with a drain, but it's the wrong one. I need one with overflow :(. Back to the store tomorrow.
I am debating if I want to install shelves in the cabinet and paint the inside. I need to decide what I am going to do for doors too. Keep the ones I have which don't really fit right, or make new ones that are inset. Or something else all together.
Happy 4th to you.
