It’s just some sweet, sweet vanities, baby!
Happy Friday!  Let’s kick the weekend off right with some bathroom makeovers!  (Those words have probably never been said by anyone looking to kick the weekend off right.)
And actually, I’m not looking to kick anything off right, because I think I have broken my foot.  I dropped a weight on it at the gym on Monday and it’s still killing me today.  Lest you think I am some kind of gym-animal, it was only a 10 pound hand-weight.  I am not buff.  I probably should have iced it right then, but I decided to pretend that it didn’t hurt and continued working out, just in case anyone was watching, but seriously man, it hurt.
Anyway.  Kicking off.  Here we go:
This bathroom comes from Better After reader Vanessa who was forced to renovate after a broken pipe flooded the entire first floor of her home. Darn.  Shucks.  What a shame to have to part with those shell sinks and tiny shower.  The new look is fabulous, I’m really loving the separate vanities and softer shade of  blue too.

And here’s a cool solution for a small bathroom from Amanda at NorvelLove: Shrink the vanity!  Look how much floor space she gained by swapping out that clunky old vanity for a sleek and narrow design.  Hop on over to her blog to see all the details up close.

This white-done-right bathroom from Rita reaffirms my dreams of someday having an all-white home.  That dream is not so possible with kids. Some people say, “Oh, you can totally have white with kids! Just Oxyclean it!  Bleach it! No problemo!”  Lies. Those people have never met kids.

    So nice, pretty, clean, and bright! When I saw the middle one, I literally said “hmmm” but in a good “wow I never thought of doing that…could I do that?” kind of way. I like it!

    Not to be super picky but I think you meant to write vanities in the title…

    I love the thin vanity! I have a really small bathroom with a clunky vanity and thought I would have to live with it forever. Now I shall look for a thin, chic one!

    I’m glad they kept the bathroom lighting in that all white bathroom – those light bulbs look great.
