What’s on Your…Bathroom Vanity


This week marks the first post of a new collaborative series called, “What’s on Your…”.  It’s a real-life glimpse into 9 bloggers homes – the good, the bad, and the messy.  Each month we’ll focus on a new surface like a bedroom nightstand, a kitchen counter, or a bookcase.  And to start things off today, we’re looking at one of the hardest working surfaces in the house:

What's on Your Bathroom VanityLike so many old houses, our little bathroom vanity is a pedestal sink.  We don’t keep a lot on it, just a bar of soap, a towel, and occasionally some fresh cut flowers (or evergreen trimmings in the winter).  And since 19-month-old Wilder just started potty training, including washing his own hands, he is often on, in, and under the vanity.

The potty-training thing often involves no pants (to Wilder’s complete joy).  So you’re welcome for those sweats 😉

For the moments that this bathroom is sans kiddo, our vanity looks more like this:

  1. What an adorable shot – loving the big boy potty training at 19 months – that’s impressive!! We have pedestal sinks at the Beaufort house and love that you can’t clutter the vanity…

  2. I love this clean, crisp look. Beautiful!

  3. I LOVE your tile floors. And the beaded board. Classic. Clean. AWESOME! The little cutie washing his hands is pretty good too!

  4. I love your clean and simple bathroom and your shirtless big boy washing his hands in the sink! He looks very intent on his work.

  5. Looks like our vanities are about the same size. 🙂

  6. I have two on the way! So I can only imagine what my vanities will look like when they start walking. Love the little touch of green. And I have always wanted a pedestal sink…so classic! Maybe someday!
