The (water) Closet.

SO, we moved into a two bedroom, one bathroom school house. And as any friends that know me or worse, road trip with me know . . .I use the bathroom a LOT. Running up and down those stairs to get to the bathroom between commercial breaks of whatever dumb show I happened to be watching at that moment just wasn't cutting it. 

So you know what. . .who has jackets these days? who really uses "coats" anymore? Not us! This closet was doing NOTHING a couple hooks and nails couldn't handle. 

SO closet,  OUT(house) YOU GO!



 We bought this door second hand from Construction Junction in Pittsburgh, we figured we would keep the NRA sticker on the window to scare intruders from interrupting.

This inside of the closet. A little chop there, some wood work here, a bit of plumbing there and a mess of olive green hi gloss paint and we are in BUSINESS. 

Listen, I loved America before loving America was "cool" design.
To me. this is a symbol that will never go out of style. 

We snagged these amazing and totally imperfect faucets at a garage sale up the street. Our plumber thought we were crazy. Swapping out two old ugly faucets for two OTHER ugly faucets. 

I said, "that's fair. a faucet."
(get it? he didn't)

An old mug from my childhood makes up for the lack of space for a soap dispenser. 

The essentials.

Love this other find from

Now this guy watches over you in case the NRA sticker doesn't scare off the intruders. This is  . . .Butch Rose. . .named after his mom. The other Butch Rose. 

I made a man let me buy this thing off a wall in an Argentinian vintage clothing store. We had a serious language barrier, as I walked out with that thing, I realized that language barrier worked majorly to my advantage.
Love Butch. 

The power of black spray paint

My Main Man. 
He angled the mirror JUST SO . .. so guys can smile at themselves while doing their business.
