When working on the finishing details of a new home, it's often the little things that get delayed the longest. Steve built all 3 of our bathroom vanities out of barn wood we brought with us from Saginaw. We've been using all 3 vanities for quite some time - even though they've been waiting patiently for their doors to be completed. Well, Steve has now crossed those off the to-do list.
Unfortunately, the door on the vanity in the guest bath had a little bitty problem. You see, Steve made a design decision - on his own - without consulting the designer-in-chief. Do you see the placement of the knob on the vanity door?
Say it with me now - using your best Scooby Doo voice: Ruh-roh!
That knob was too low to make my eyes happy. I would have preferred it to be near the top of the door. Wood putty was never going to plug a hole in this old barn wood well enough to please my eyes, so a compromise solution was needed. We ditched the knob and purchased a new handle requiring 2 screws. The bottom screw would go into the hole already drilled. Of course, I had to modify the handle a bit by adding some twine to it. In my world, twine is bling.
The designer-in-chief liked this much better.
See what I mean?
All in all, I think it was a happy accident. My eyes are happy, and Mr. Perfect-For-Me is still almost perfect.
I'll show you the rest of the vanity and the full reveal of this upstairs guest bath on Monday.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
