Finally, finally finished! Well, except for hanging the clean hand towels!
How is it that I look at all of your wonderful DIY projects and you all write about doing it in an afternoon, or, for a major DIY, maybe it takes you two days?
This seemingly simple DIY took us WEEKS of trying this and that, getting the trim we like, finding the handles and hinges and then finding that what we THOUGHT were identical hinges as the originals, were about an 1/8 of an inch wider, therefore bumping into each other and then hubby having to shave off the closing edge of the cabinet doors so they would close and also having to fill all of the old screw holes and redrill new ones for the hinges, then finding that the cabinet doors still bumped so again shaving off a bit more door, then repainting.
We had to find the right can of paint for the cabinet doors from our basement, then finding out that it now looks different since so much time has passed and a gal cannot then just touch up, but has to repaint the whole front, and discovering that we could NOT find the paint can we just knew we had for the walls. We had to go get more paint from holding up a paint deck and hope for the best and then ended up having to repaint the entire space, because the paint color was ALMOST right, but no cigar…
In other words, simple plan in the beginning. Raise the counter height with a 2×4 on-end box, then the granite guys would come in and install the new granite. Then just trim out where they joined, put on new hardware, install the pretty new faucet and be done!
Anyway, I am exhausted from complaining! Enough. Here is the final shot (is there ever a final shot?) of the tiny but finished Master Bath sink area, complete with the cool mirror frame that was purchased from our dear Son-In-Law, Matt Moneyhan, at Doors and Fireplaces by Mike in Conyers, GA.
I hope we were able to bring this half of the bathroom into the 21st century and make it the best tiny Master Bath is can be.
