Bathroom Makeover, Day 10

While we were at work, Cassie (my daughter), painted the cabinet a denim blue.  I love the color.

Robert removed the sink.  We had to remove the wallpaper that was behind it.

OK, so this is where our big splurge came in.  We decided to buy a granite counter top.  We went to a place that had precut slabs, so we saved some money on that.  We also bought the sink from them and had them drill the holes for the sink.  We bought the faucet off of EBay for only $40.  To give the granite top more support, Robert put a board on top of the cabinet and fastened it with countersunk screws.  He cut out the hole for the sink and then applied an adhesive.

 Here's Cassie helping Robert bring the new counter top in.  Isn't she a doll!

Yay!  Counter top is in!

Next, since we had taken Gravy's sleeping place away from him for a couple of weeks, we had to get his approval.  As you can see, he wasn't too sure of it at first.

But... he began to warm up to it.

And before you know it, he was happy in his new bathroom.

Now that we have Gravy's approval, we can continue on with the backsplash!
