People think I'm crazy.

I bought this table on Craigslist. It has a rusted zinc top.

The paint finish is...rustic. My mom went with me to look at it and she sat in the truck praying that I wouldn't buy it.

But, as with our currently "rustic" house, I can see the end product in my imagination.

Here's the plan:

These two bathrooms, I think from Cottage Living? have been my inspiration, especially the first one. I have this sink:

That will go on top of the table. I'm taking the zinc top off, cool as it probably once was. I'll touch up the paint & leave the top unpainted. It will go here:

White subway tile, white mosaic floor tiles, pale grey walls, white painted medicine cabinet, clean toilet & no boxing glove in the corner. It will be fabulous. I've said that before, haven't I? One of these days I'll show you all the fabulousness for real instead of just talking about it.

Oh, and Vino doesn't think I'm crazy. He likes the table. That's two of us!

I am totally excited for this "after" picture. I'm a very in the box thinker and just can not picture this one. :)

Erin, I do not think you are crazy. You are so creative. Can't wait to see how the bathroom ends up! Keep blogging.

Creatives are always a bit 'crazy.' :)
