Powder Room Updates

This weekend we tackled the powder room, and it did not go as smoothly as we'd hoped. We had made a big purchase several weeks ago when we had a 10% coupon for Lowes and we'd picked a new vanity with sink, and a new toilet for the powder room at that time. First Paul and Dad Madden tried to install the new toilet and got the wax seal put on and everything ready to go, and had it in place to screw in when they noticed a crack under the seal on the bowl. Back it had to go.

Then we realized after pulling out the old vanity that one of the plumbing pipes came out of the side wall instead of the back wall where the other plumbing was, and the first vanity we'd purchased wouldn't have worked with that side pipe. We also realized it didn't have a backsplash. Back it had to go, too!

Below is the new cabinet we finally decided on after several trips back and forth to Lowes and Home Depot. Sheesh! I think Paul and his Dad must have been in 3-4 Home Depot/Lowes today alone! Also, a photo of the granite top Paul found to go with the cabinet. I'll update in another post with photos of the final outcome.
