grey day casa: medicine cabinet to niche

The original 1970’s medicine cabinet in the bathroom wasn’t doing much for us; we didn’t keep anything in it and it projected a good 2″ from the wall on the left side of the vanity.

1970s medicine cabinet redo

old 1970’s medicine cabinet… 🙁 who though of the shape for the top of that door? rough…

So my husband removed the old cabinet and built a new niche for me using some mdf, 1″x4″s and trim 🙂

see how it turned out! ->

grey day casa: sharing an apartment

Made bed

Doesn’t have to be perfect, just tidy—–nightstands are IKEA HEMNES and are perfect examples of furniture that “perches”

We just moved to a new place a month ago but for the past two years John and I were sharing a tiny first-floor apartment. If we lived in the city this would be the norm; but in the suburbs, most people are incredulous when you claim that a married couple can amicably share a small one bedroom apartment.
