When we moved into our house 3 years ago, it didn't have a bathroom on the main level. Since Joe is Mr. Do-it-yourself man we decided that we would put it in on our own. To have the builders do it, it would have cost us about $2500. We are able to put it in for around $500. We went with a pedestal sink for two reasons. A...I think they are cute. And B....they costs less than putting in a cabinet. I love the sink, but I do miss having a place to store my toilet paper. I was lucky enough to find this cute little cabinet for $3 the other day. I painted it white and sanded it quite a bit. My Sis-in-Law told me that she doesn't like things that are heavily distressed. It kind of gives her the creeps. I'm kind of the opposite. I probably wouldn't mind if my furniture was on the bottom of the ocean for a year before I used it. OK, so maybe not to that extreme, but I do like it shabby. For me it's a comfy homey feel. So, sorry if my house creeps you out Deanne:) After I sanded this little guy I rubbed it down with stain and used spray adhesive and paper to add a dash of color to the inside.
