Stock vanity goes custom- My Texas Home Makeover Post #27

I painted the vanity the same color as the new plank ceiling.  Oh what a little paint can do!
Drawer pulls snagged from pier one for $2 each.

Planking the Ceiling- My Texas Home Makeover Post #26

After a year off from major home projects, I jumped in with both feet when the kids went back to school two weeks ago.  I decided to plank the half bath ceiling as a test case for the kitchen and dining room ceilings.  I glued then nailed painted 3"x 5/16" pine over the existing popcorn ceiling.  It looks fabulous- the kitchen ceiling is next!  

Planking.  The boards went up much faster and easier than I expected!

It took me an entire day to learn how to cut crown molding- I had to use a small crown molding for this project because my HVAC vent (not pictured) was in the way.  

The ceiling is painted Sherwin Williams Pussy Willow and the walls are SW Mineral Deposit.  

Prior to this, I had never used a miter saw or a nail gun and certainly hadn't cut crown molding- loved every minute of it and did it all myself.
