This is an image of the bathroom in my office. Thanks to the Habitat Re-Store I was able to score some great finds. I re-purposed a medicine cabinet mirror, a feed scoop & a cabinet door that I used to make a cute sign. The adorable pedestal sink was from there as well as the hardwood distressed flooring. I can thank our good friend Eric for help with some of the tasks of remodeling the bathroom. The awesome lights were from Light Art, thanks to Emma who found just what I was after. The hand soap dispenser, hand towels & bath mat were from Walmart & the shower curtain came from Bed, Bath & Beyond. The beautiful accent color is my favorite Valspar paint from Kroeger's in the town plaza shopping center.
