Bathroom Before & After & After

So here's the deal with our house, it only has one bathroom.  So needless to say a major bathroom overhaul hasn't been in the cards, call us crazy but we like to shower and utilize our working plumbing if you know what I mean.  With that said our bathroom was a sad sad little room when we bought this house.  1987 had officially called and wanted it's linoleum back and the lack of storage was kind of a joke.  Here's a little look at the bathroom we started with.

It's a thing of beauty isn't it?  So we knew we needed storage ASAP.  Our house is very old & tiny so storage is key.  We were on a major budget  and were very naive on scale, color, etc.  So this is what we came up with.

Not too shabby, new floors, new paint, new vanity, mirror, etc.  It wasn't bad until.... well, we used it.  The vanity was way too deep for the space and although it was very "modern" it was a pain in the arse to keep looking clean.  So after about a year with this set up we craig's listed the vanity (it sold in 17 minutes), painted the walls, painted the mirror and wall storage and headed back to store for a new vanity.  This is our second go around at the bathroom.

It's definitely more functional for the space and we didn't really lose any storage area.  So there it is until we decide to change our minds again. (I am secretly thinking about new floors again.)
