Bonfire for most Vanities

Except for mine!

I am currently in the midst of a bathroom remodel. And the budget is low. Which means, I want a nice floor, but that means my vanity isn't the fanciest.

My mom and I found one vanity (why are bathroom vanities either $100 or $700? I know that one was in the middle, but, really they are either cheap or expensive. Nothing middle of the road unless you repaint it. Aaaand exhale), within our budget that was made of wood, not mdf. And it was that awful red colored wood that makes me cringe.
I liked the curved front and the white top, so we bought it. And I started planning which of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors it would be.

I decided on French Linen. It's a gray that leans a little more brown. I also looked at Coco, which was lovely, but started off too dark. And I wanted to use some of the dark wax to add character. Here it is in full light. I worked under a green pavilion style tent, to keep out the bugs and debris which cast the piece in a green light.

Here it is under the green tent with the handles:
I found the little handles at Anthropologie! Only $6! And they matched without looking too matchy-matchy. The faucet is going to be polished chrome and I purposely chose a brass handle. That way it looks more like I found it rather than a refinished piece from Lowe's.
I can't wait to show off my bathroom! I have been interneting for weeks picking everything out! Cameron and my mother getting most of the texts and emails, "Do I really like this?" I like too many things. Sometimes that is not good. When designing a 35 sqft room...

Next task: finding the perfect greige paint...more gray than beige...let me know if you have any good ones!

You do some brilliant stuff. But then I've believed in you ever since I saw the floor to ceiling chalkboard in the kitchen.
