Furniture in The Bathroom

My husband is really very kind. He allows my furniture in the bathroom. Now you may be thinking ...how strange. I know some great re purposed dressers are being used as vanities with the sink inserted in them . I love that look. I tried for that in this bathoom but, my husband stopped me at "but...JIM". This room is fairly big due to the plumbing work having to stay on one side, keeping it all together to save money. When Jim and I got married in 2006 we needed to add a second bathroom to our home to accommodate the 6 of us. At the time we married my children were 21 & 19 and Jim's children were 17 & 15. My children really weren't home because they lived away at school. But, the second bathroom was needed just the same. We had the bathroom built downstairs because it was a wide open space. Well, as it started to unfold down there I had big ideas. I knew it was going to need filling and I had all the right stuff.
Here's my Pink Saturday vintage wash stand. I love it all chippy & distressed. I think this makes the third piece of furniture in the room plus a beautiful built-in. I don't think Jim has the same feelings towards this shabby'tique decor as I do. Poor guy he only gets to keep his car magazines in there. He keeps saying something about this room having more furniture in it then his old aprtment. I hope you enjoyed today's visit.

I love the little washstand! I understand where your husband is coming from... he just needs to have a little shabbychic item of his very own in the bathroom, that's all (maybe a vintage 50s toy car?) He'll soon come round to your way of thinking!

Have a lovely Pink Saturday.
