A bathroom makeover... minus Mr. 'Big Honkin' Vanity'.

I use to detest this bathroom. So much so, that I had the guys throw the big ugly vanity to the curb. It was like a ray of sunshine came down because the room doubled in size and I knew I could do something cool with it. And the rest is history.







  • Even a small bathroom stands half a chance if you choose your stuff wisely. A ladder for towel storage truly rocks as it takes so little real estate.
  • Toilet paper storage at it's junkiest. This simple storage solution went semi viral all over the land. Gotta love when the world knows and loves where you store your toilet paper, huh? (Scotts brand since we're at it)
  • Ohhh and then there's my numbered headboard with a ridiculous amount of hooks. They must be broken though because my son still drops everything on the floor.
  • You have to see the before. See that vanity?! It took up half the room. Ever try changing in a closet? Wait... a yellowed yellow closet. Yeah. That.
  • Here, I knew you'd want a closeup of this creature of beauty. Do you like the open air drawer? Class all the way.
  • I love you big wide open spaces (NON HONKIN' VANITY) bathroom!

    I agree with Elaine.I just moved into my new house from a house that I thought that had a small bathroom and didn't think the next place I'd move into could possibly an even smaller bathroom. Well I was wrong! I have a pedestal sink in my new bathroom

    It is very pretty but I have used a sink like that at my son,s house and it was not practical. There was no place to sit anything when getting ready. Personally, I would never put a sink in like that but I hope you like yours!

    Well, I'm jealous of all that room you have. After I put that big vanity in my bathroom, I had a "doh!" moment. I realized I could have/should have just put two pedestal sinks in there! Doh!

    Jean , not all large vanities are bad ones, I'm truly jealous of your newfound space and I'm sure it's gorgeous! The one I had in this tiny little bathroom was simply not working out. :) Thank-you everyone!

    Love your entire "new bathroom." I remember when you just had the t.p. w/ license plate displayed. It's great to see the entire room now - wondeful job!!!

    It looks great! Oddly enough I just added a big honkin' vanity to my tiny bathroom. I love the storage and double sinks.

    It's gorgeous...but a practical question...where do you store your hairbrush, makeup, toothbrush and other essential clobber?

    Beautiful! All of it!
