This is the kind of place where it's anyone's guess what you will find there on any given day. The day we were there: no mirrors -- and really... nothing else of interest to us. But, we were kind of on a quest for something to kick this bathroom project into high gear, so we headed to a local home-center.
Of course, we'd like to re-do the entire bathroom -- but that's just not going to happen right now... so the light fixture and a new mirror/medicine cabinet were the must-have items. We decided to concentrate on the light fixture situation first. The choices were endless -- and that's part of my problem. When it comes to light fixtures, the kazillion choices pretty much fall into TWO categories for me: "that'll do" AND "that's ugly." Also, one of my hang-ups is the "finish." That has totally kept me from making a decision in the past. But recently, I've done enough blog-reading to know that people don't necessarily stick to just one finish for lights, cabinet hardware, and the faucet fixture. I want to tell you... THAT IS SO FREEING!
So, with no regard to any other finishes in the room, we picked out a brushed nickel light fixture with three angular globes. My sweet hubby has already installed it (LOL - hope we're not moving too quickly for you! Believe me, nobody was more surprised than me!) -- AND, I LOVE IT. (Like kicking-myself-wondering-why-we-waited-so-long LOVE IT!)
I'm so glad we finally got the ball rolling -- thanks to our daughter who said "How about this one?" I have a feeling it won't be quite as hard to make the mirror/medicine cabinet choice now. We already have a few ideas in mind.
