Bathroom Redo- Building A Countertop

 
I have been wanting to spruce up my bathroom for some time.
Here is what I want to change:
Paint Color- Need something warmer.
Trim- Need more of it.  Perhaps board and batten or planks.
Vanity Top and Sink- the current sink is off center and seen better days.
Grout- Refresh the tub grout and possibly the floor grout.
Light fixture- I would love a barn style fixture.
Door- Install Barn Door !

This is what I've been working on:
New plank counter top.  Made from scrap cherry flooring.  4 coats of varnish so far.  Few more to go.
I am debating on vessel sink or drop in.  What to you think?

Next up: Barn door.  I have the hardware.  I have the door.  Now I just have to put it all together and make it fabulous.

Board and Batten Again

Up went the board and batten.  What do you think?
I have many projects on my to do list, but this was a spur of the moment one.
While taking stock of the wood I had in the shed, I found some great long pieces.  Light bulb on. 
A little sanding.  Nail gun out and the Board and Batten went up.
You see I've been searching for oh about 4 years or so for a painting to hang behind my kitchen island.  
I have found absolutely nothing.  I didn't want something that would be too trendy.  
I didn't want something that I would bore from quickly. 
 I tend to like things very streamlined and clean.
Loving how it matches the living room wall.
