The Bird Bath

Before-

The half bath is on our first floor between the kitchen and family room. It included the washer and dryer in a makeshift closet.

This vanity was warped and the faucet and sink were crudy and impossible to clean.

After-

We used the sink that was in the master bath when we moved in. One of these days I will show the before and after of that renovation. We used the same lights, towel and TP holders. I inherited the mirror from my Aunt Betty many years ago. We tried to match the green and failed. The gal at the Benjamin Moore store did her best but it just doesn’t have the same look as the old lead paint. The toilet is new. The old one is now in the apartment over the garage. We made that move last fall when we got the water hooked up in the apartment over the garage and discovered the toilet was cracked.

I’ve been blowing out the duck eggs and now have a nice collection in this Easter basket. The basket is from my childhood. The chair was my grandmother’s.

I made this quilt the winter before we moved (2013/14). I had no idea it would end up on a bathroom wall. The hand towels are rolled up in a basket that was one of many in one of the bedroom closets. I think it was used as a craft closet by the previous owner.

This cabinet came from The Snugbug Mercantile in downtown Staunton. I love this store and have stayed out of it for the past few months so I wouldn’t be tempted! Jeff, who owns the shop with his wife Patty, said he found it at an estate sale north of here.

Thanks, Mom, for naming this The Bird Bath. I hadn’t really planned most of my accessories having a bird theme – the basket of eggs, peacock feathers in the glass jug and the bird prints.
