new bath room vanity

As part of our home updating, we decided to update our upstairs bathroom.
We fell in love with the vanities at Restoration hardware, but they did not have the size we wanted and they were very expensive....
So after much research we found a very similar vanity at 
Tradewinds Imports.... for about two thirds the price.
I think the one we picked was very close to the one we loved at restoration hardware!

Here is our old one....
 and now, our new one...
 We bought it as raw wood vanity, with the idea to paint it.  
After getting it, I decided I would just wax it.
So I put a coat of clear wax and then dark wax and then several clear wax coats.
We are in the process of also redoing our shower, but it has been a very drama filled experience.  
Not one I would recommend to anyone.  A lot of miscommunication with the vendor, so I am not very happy with the outcome and progress of that part of the project.  
I will show you pictures when we finish it.
We will end up with a nice shower, but it is not the shower that I had hoped for.
But I am very pleased with our vanity :)  It came with beautiful carrera marble top and we chose Martha Stewart  faucets from Home Depot.


  1. Wow, I love your new vanity. Good luck with the shower install.

  2. It looks very pretty Linda! I love the marble counter! We need a new tub and surround but keep procrastinating about it. There's always something and it always costs $$. ~Hugs, Patti
