It works!

It works! It really works!

After months of work, we finally have a working basement bathroom again! When your only other bathroom for the lower two floors is dollhouse-sized, this is really cause for celebration. We haven't passed inspection, and we still have a few remaining things to do. So no full reveal yet. But here are some photos of our work in progress.

I'm so pleased with my IKEA Lillangen sink. It's incredible that you can get such a stylish piece at the price. To accentuate its farmhouse feel, I paired it with this Price Pfister Ashfield faucet that's reminiscent of an old-fashioned outdoor water pump. Beadboard (painted in the ever-popular Benjamin Moore White Dove), white-and-black dot octagon tile, and a barn-style lighting fixture complete the vintage, farmhouse look. I would have preferred the Lillangen's metal-framed glass doors over the solid white mdf door, but unfortunately, our plumbing came in from the side wall and would have been very visible through the frosted glass. Sometimes you have to accommodate what's there.

Just a few details to finish up, and this DIY remodel can be checked off the "to do" list.
