One Step At A Time: The Bathroom Redo Edition. Volume 6A

So, it looks like I'll be moving my home improvement efforts indoors for a little bit.

Luckily*, I have a project or two to work on. I had started to sand down the vanity the week before we hosted Eric's team at work for a cookout - that quickly moved indoors when the lightning started and just before the gully washer downpour - and realized it was a messier and longer project than could be accomplished in time to host guests. So I put the doors back on the the drawers back in and focused on other pre-party tasks.

I'll also sand down this large storage cabinet and a small wall shelf that we took out of the laundry room right after we moved in.

I am considering adding some moulding details, but haven't come to a decision.

I'd already taken off the sweet little porcelain knobs when I remembered to get a before picture. There are holes indicating that this piece originally had doors. Given the cute finish details and the otherwise utilitarian look to the laundry room, I have to assume this piece started it's life somewhere else; maybe not even in this house. The other open shelf that was in there seems to have been made with the same materials as kitchen cabinets, so perhaps it was original to either the laundry room or the kitchen.

* Air-quotes are implied.


  1. That bathroom is going to look so much better after you get done with it. We so need to re-do our bathroom too.
