A little update...

We are in a bit of a holding pattern for our guest bathroom remodel, but one exciting thing has happened: I got my Restoration Hardware knockoff vanity.  Living in Idaho often means less access to the "big fancy" stores like RH, so sometimes, you have to get creative.  I found this vanity on their website, placed it into my cart, and was ready to bite the bullet. Then, I saw the shipping fees--over $500.  I waited. I stocked the website. Still, no shipping break.  So, I decided to go local, which was definitely a good idea.  Quick google search, a few emails, and I had a builder for my pretty yet masculine vanity.  Going this route, I was also able to choose exactly the marble type I wanted for the counter.  After about 25 emails to different local granite/marble fabricators, I finally found the one and only remnant, and got a killer deal.  When all is said and done, this piece will cost over $1,000 less than RH's version, and is all solid wood, no veneers, unlike the pricey little RH number.

Want to check it out? Right now, its home is in our garage until go-time, but I thought it would be fun to give you all a sneak peak.

So, here it the Restoration Hardware one it resembles.


 And here is the one I had built, without its fancy little calucutta marble counter.



Not bad, right? This sweet little deal was courtesy of RC Woodstuff, a local carpenter. So happy he was able to make this little dream possible!

Make sure to make your day great!
