The Vanity Search.

We have a 1950s-60s house that we have been slowly remodeling for the past 8 years. Probably by the time we're done with the remodel we'll have to start over again because everything will be outdated (hah!) . Actually, we're on our last leg of the remodeling journey with the remodel of the bathrooms. Currently we're doing the masterbath.  This bath was previously covered in a bluish tile.  Believe me, I like vintage bathrooms but this one was just plain ugly!

This bath has been gutted down to the studs and sub flooring.  This coming week we will be doing the sheetrock.  By the way, ALL of the remodeling has been done by my hardworking hubby, Mr. Thomas.

We really wanted a nice looking vanity with 2 sinks.  We thought we'd get an English sideboard and install 2 sinks in it.  We searched high and low in Dothan but couldn't find anything that we liked.  We took a trip to Mollywood Imports that's about 5 miles South of Dothan; 30,000 sq. ft. of imported Indonesian furniture.

A view looking through the showroom.

I especially Loved this piece.....not for the price though.  I think it was around $1,000.

A nice classic looking unpainted piece.

I like the lines on this piece and I love green, I'd probably tone down this green a bit if it were to go in my house.


So, we ended up buying a vanity from the Home Depot yesterday.  I like it.  It looks like a piece of furniture and has black painted finish and will fit 2 sinks.  Although we paid a bit more than we wanted, we found what we were looking for!

I'll post a pic of the vanity soon!  Stay tuned ;-)


  1. The distressed piece at Mollywood is awesome. I did a PC condo last fall for a friend and used the EXACT piece in the LR to hold his flat screen tv. I also used about 4 or 5 matching pieces around the condo as end tables/coffee tables. Molly also had some distressed stacking cubes that we grouped together like building blocks, they made a great piece of art in the corner. Painted the walls in the living area a dark chartreuse/mustardy green. The combination was perfect. I like a black and white bathroom. I think your vanity choice in black will be timeless and classic. Upload more pics when you get a chance. Justin

  2. The condo sounds cool Justin. That distressed piece was my favorite but there's definitely not a place in our house for it right now. Molly has some super cool furniture in her place. I heard she was opening a place downtown....

    I was definitely wanting a black piece in our bathroom. I'll post some more pics soon!

  3. LOVE the green piece, that one's fabulous.
