from drab to fab bathroom remodel

the bathroom is supposedly the busiest room in a home. for me, it is also the hardest to furnish because good looking fittings can be so horribly expensive.

matt came up with this affordable ikea solution for his bathroom, which i think totally works.

bathroom remodel before afterbathroom remodel before after"when it came time to redesign our half bath we were unable to find an affordable yet stylish solution for a vanity. our search lead us to ikea where i decided to hack a stolmen shelf and create a floating sink/vanity. i cut a hole to allow the hollviken sink to set down in the shelf and mounted it to the wall.

floating bathroom vanityfor storage i cut an effektiv storage unit down to 6" depth (originally 14") and mounted it to the wall. then i attached a grundtal towel bar to the bottom.
