And when I say "new" house, I mean new to us. Which is exactly what we were looking for.
Mature tree lined streets, charm, history....and oh yeah, the other stuff that comes in the old house package: outdated lighting fixtures, alot of paneling and offensive wood finishes.
Ugly? You bet'cha.
I envisioned the paneling painted out white and giving the vanity a coat of my good ol' stand by black paint. But
my dear sweet husband somebody suggested that I "do something different."
It's true. I am a creature of habit. I love black, and in almost every home that we've lived over the past 13 years, the bathroom vanities have reflected that love affair.
Fresno, CA (no photos because I never took any....)
Mesa, AZ: (note the same flowers, Kristi? I've had my "props" forever)Eagle Mountain, UT:
So I agreed to paint it ALL white, because 1). it would be a change and 2). it would keep everything light,bright and cheery.
Problem is: I DON'T LIKE LIGHT BRIGHT AND CHEERY.
I need a little more substance, a little more weight...
a little more black.
And this weekend I finally gave in.
