20 years ago, we put an addition onto the house. For the new bathroom/laundry room we put in a big vanity which, until this weekend, did not have the side facing the door finished. The tap that was installed needed two hands to pull up on the handle to turn it on and then you were showered with a splash of water.
Well, a couple weeks ago, my daughter and I painted the bathroom which inspired the renovations to the vanity. A new tap was installed—oh yah—it sits high above the sink and there is no splash AND you turn the little handle back and forth with one finger to control the water. SWEET.
This change led to Rick picking through the oak tongue and groove boards that he had brought home from his work a few months ago. A little cleaning up of the boards, a little stain, and we now have a wood side on our vanity rather than the chipboard stuff.
Next: baseboard and toekick (if those are the right words) using more of the oak boards. Yippee!!
