The post is part of my #TBT [Throw Back Thursday] series, and is the third home improvement one. My first home improvement #TBT post covered the hardwood floors we had installed on our 2nd floor back in February 2012:
My second home improvement #TBT post covered the makeover of our kitchen ceiling with cloud wallpaper:
This post focuses on the double vanity we had installed [back in September 2012!] in our master bathroom. Jim has always maintained that double sinks are the key to a happy marriage and now that we have them, I’d agree!
When I first moved into the condo, there was a marble topped, single sink’d vanity in the master bathroom [my father-in-law took these pics when Jim first bought the condo]:
It was very nice, but just had the one sink.
We didn’t have much space to work with. The bathroom isn’t very large, and there are 2 doors [one to the bedroom & one to the upstairs hall] as well as a tub. Thankfully IKEA makes very small, double sink’d vanities! They aren’t selling the one we bought anymore, which is too bad. We like it due to the round sinks and the faucets placed at an angle:
The whole thing measures 40″ x 19″ and is 35½” tall. It’s perfect and we love it! The vanity doesn’t have much counter space, so we installed a couple of wall shelves on the left:
But it has tons of drawer space:
Our friend Briggs [Abbie’s husband] installed it for us. That was way back – pre blog – before I knew I was capable of doing such things myself!
