The main bathroom vanity is done, finally! 
We didn't get to use the mirror we had planned on but the
Plan B mirror will work just fine too.
It is an old plasterwork frame that my husband's grandmother gave
us and I put mirror in it.  It was a nice gold color but needed
to be distressed for this room.
We think it turned out rather nice , as did the vanity project.

We do decorate for Valentines month at Castle Queen.
I have just been busy but before I take it all down and start setting
the stage for Spring thought I would show you my décor.
I will miss my Valentine tree till next year!!

I love the look of silver plated items in groups, trays hung on walls, loving cups in a bunch etc.
I don't do silver or silver plate per say in my own home as gold finishes go better
in here . But that doesn't mean I don't like to look or admire it. I actually have a couple pieces I am not sure what to do with because I love them so much and they are hard to find.  Maybe I can recreate a room and add silver plate to it.
I always carry a lot of it in my shop space and it seems to go; pretty trays, wonderful old bowls, lovely ice buckets.
There is always a silver lining and always a pretty piece of silver plate or silver somewhere!

Redoing the main bathroom...
Our current home project is the redo of the main bathroom.
We just found this triple mirror that we really like for it.  We are
waiting on the counter top fabricator to make us and come install the marble under mount sink and back splash that will go on top of the old vanity.
This weekend we go buy a sink faucet for this too.
At Christmas time I just dolled it up a bit, while we waited for the counter top guy to come after the holidays to make a template etc.  The old buffet was nice to give up its former life to become a sink vanity for us.

Hubby having to modify the drawers so we can do the plumbing later.

New Italian tile went in for the flooring.  Getting ready to grout here.

Some of the décor in here.

With the old sink vanity out, already looks better.

Getting ready to set tile.

The old vanity, back splash and floor had to go.  We replaced the toilet also.

Before we started.  We are going to have the shower redone into a walk in shower etc. too and eliminate the tub portion.  I have arthritic things, so this will be helpful in the future.  We still have a tub in the master.  Can't wait for it all to be updated and redone. Nice change!
