Bathroom Sink Upgrade

**This is a sponsored post on behalf of Dorel Living. All thoughts and opinions are my own**

When we bought our house, I knew right away that we were going to have a huge issue in the master bathroom. Why someone opted for a pedestal sink in a master bathroom mystifies me. So going into purchasing the home, we started looking at different sink and vanity options for a TINY bathroom.

That is the sink we were dealing with, for 3 LONG months. We finally found the perfect colored, sized and style of sink through Dorel Living. We opted on the Dorel Living Otum 36” Vanity! It took forever for us to settle on a size and style since we were working with such a limited space and wanted to upgrade the mirror to one that we already owned and matches our bedroom set. I was pretty dead set on a gray and Payton was pretty deadset on a dark brown (guess who won LOL)!

Removing the old sink was pretty effortless. Since it was just a pedestal sink, it eaily came up off of the flooring and detached from the wall. Our biggest issue was that the piping didn’t match up to the new sink so that required to buy a few extra supplies to hook it up. Still, it was very easy.

When our package arrived from Dorel Living, I was relieved to find that our vanity arrived assembled! Woo Hoo!!! I was super worried about having to put it together, I seriously lack patience in that area! 

It did not include the fixtures which was how we wanted it. This gave us the opportunity to get the vanity we wanted and match our fixtures to the shower. It would have been so difficult otherwise. We found the perfect sink fixtures and it ended up so beautiful. 

We were really happy to find that the color of the sink was EXACTLY what the photo showed on the Dorel Living website pictures! For us, that meant that is matched our mirror and bedroom perfectly. To have drawers, cabinets and counter space has been so life changing for our bathroom. Not only do we love our bathroom transformation, we know that it will help the resale value of the home! 

One downfall was that we did have to remove our towel rack and toilet paper roller. We did know that going into deciding to put in a vanity. We have a towel hook on the back of the bathroom door (for not, we plan to remove that and install barn doors) and still need to purchase a free standing toilet paper roll holder. For now we just set it on the back of the toilet!

Can’t wait to show you guys more projects that we are doing to the new house!

Published by Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
