For the Love of Marble Tile

Things are still moving right along at the casa.  I wanted to show you a few new pics now that the bathroom floor is in and finished.  I love this marble tile even more now that it's on the floor!  I know it's not particularly practical, but I love the way it looks and it gives such a great vintage feel to the bathroom.  In the picture above you can see a part of the vanity, which is going to be painted white.  I had found these pictures in the new Restoration Hardware catalog:

I wanted that vanity and cabinet, but painted white and scaled down for my space.  (As a side note: as much as I love Restoration Hardware, all of their new furniture is SO HUGE!  Who has room for furniture that big?  If you do, then my hat is off to you!  But my little teeny tiny hall bathroom requires something more "wee" than that.)  Anyway, I gave the carpenter the picture, and crossed my fingers.  Well, it may be hard to tell from my photo, but this is what he created:

I'll take better pics when they are painted (I think I'll need to stand in the bathtub to get a good shot), but let me tell you -- this totally exceeded my expectations!  It took my breath away.  I am so impressed; I wish that I had the skills to make furniture like this!

In other house news, when we last left the hallway, it looked like this:

And now, ta da!

So, as you can see, things are looking up around here!  I hope you have a great weekend!  I'm going to be busy this weekend dealing with this:
