You’re so Vain I bet you think this blog is about you, don’t you, don’t you?
Vanity. Isn’t it one of the seven deadly sins?
If not, it should be.
The thing is, I’m not actually talking about preening and thinking oneself is all that.
I’m talking about the cabinet that holds a sink in your bathroom, yeah, that Vanity. It should be one of the seven deadly sins.
I’m redoing our half bath. The powder room as it was once called.
Ours is ugly. Not just old and outdated ugly but UGLY.
Picture the scene: brass fixtures. Shell design lights. Shells on the tiles on the wall. A shell pedestal sink.
I’m drowning in bad 90s decorating choices. In Someone Else’s BAD 90’s decorating choices. Even worse.
So once I finish painting the interior of my house, I am tackling that bathroom.
But I cannot find a vanity I like to save my life.
They’re either too wide. Or the wrong color. Or maybe there’s nothing objectionable about them but that’s all I can say for it and it’s like 900 dollars.
I don’t mind paying a reasonable amount for what I want but when all I can say for something is it doesn’t make me puke – 900, 1000, 1100, 1200 dollars is ridiculous.
I actually found something I loved. It was just the right height and right width and had a great look.
But it was a cabinet, not a vanity. So I looked long and hard at what it would take to convert it but it was just going to be insanity. sigh.
So the hunt continues….for vanity….
