We've made major progress in the half-bathroom since I last posted. We were waiting on our quartz counter top to be fabricated, which took about three weeks. Once that was ready, I kicked it into high gear, because I was so excited to have the final piece in my hands!
I started accessorizing the bathroom with a couple of big baskets I picked up for under the sink. I searched high and low for these puppies - on the internet, and in just about every store I went to. Then one day while I was grocery shopping at Meijer, and decided to check out their selection. Low and behold, I found these beautiful, deep seagrass baskets for under $17 a piece! Since then I've seen similar baskets for around $25. Of course I couldn't just leave them as is. I decided to tie in the ceiling color, Benjamin Moore's Fresh Dew, by painting the bottom section of these baskets.
First I taped off both baskets of the area I wanted to paint, making sure they were the same. I didn't measure anything, just sort of eye-balled what I thought looked right.
Then I painted them both with regular old flat paint, a free sample from Ace Hardware in fact. I always have bad luck with the tape sticking and pealing paint off of walls, so I made sure that wouldn't happen by removing the tape while the paint was still wet. And, ta-da! That's all... Easy peasy!
Since I'm impatient, I let them dry for a couple of hours, and placed them in their new home! They'll be used to hold extra toilet paper, the boys' wipes, some Lysol wipes for quick clean up & hand towels... if I ever find what I did with them. I chose the colors for this bathroom from a hand towel that I had from World Market, now I don't know where I put my stack before we demolished this room. And as you can see from this photo, the sink is hooked up and working great. I love it so much, that I will walk across the house to wash my hands here!
And here's a little sneak peak of the counter top and sink. That little pot got a quick paint job as well, and a lovely little Donkey Tail succulent Ty picked out at Home Depot last week. Now I'm just waiting on the new toilet paper holder, and I think we're ready for the reveal. Stay tuned! :)
