Normally I'm not a big sink skirt fan except in vintage-y kitchens, but I really didn't see another quick, easy, inexpensive solution for this issue. Luckily, I had several decent-sized remnants from the bed set and throw pillows so was able to cobble together a coordinating sink skirt. It's a little more Garanimals Home Collection (that is to say "matchy matchy") than I'd prefer, but it I get the satisfaction of using remnants. My skirt is attached with Velcro which is sewn to the skirt and adhered with silicone to the underside of the sink lip. When I installed it, I found that I was not the first to skirt this sink: there was two-sided foam tape under the lip which I removed.
|I didn't have quite enough of the lattice pattern to do the whole skirt with it, so I made the "drop waist" bit using the plain grey. The piping is some I made for the dog silhouette throw pillows.|
The sunflower-yellow painted mirror got a make over with yet another faux bois treatment (so much easier, faster, cleaner to do that than to strip the paint and stain the wood) and like the circular mirror above the sink, was moved to the dressing room where it hangs to the right of the dresser. I don't feel much pressure to fill that space with anything, since it's usually hidden behind the water closet door which opens out.
|I did this paint treatment at the same time as this one, but with different colors.|
I'm about half way there!
