Basement Bathroom Inspiration + Giveaway Winner!

Happy Fabulous Friday my friends!

A few things to share...

First things first, the winner of the Lampe Berger starter kit! Congratulations to...
Florence C in Newfoundland!!
Fun giveaway, would love to hear your thoughts on the kit :)
We're moving full steam ahead with clearing out the basement. Mr. Fix-It and I have been hanging out down there clearing out ALL.THE.STUFF! It feels good to get rid of things and it's been a walk down memory lane finding things down there. However, I'm ready for the "cleaning out" period to be over! Over! Over! All the stuff can feel overwhelming sometimes and we're really trying to reduce what we need to store. Mr. Fix-It has also been busy taking out the beams, random insulation that someone added before us and turning the basement into an empty shell for our contractor. Here is where we started...
Here's where we are right now. Slow and steady.

Between boxes, I've started to think about the end result and started with the bathroom.
You know my love of white and grey but want the bathroom not to feel so formal. I found these fab tiles and I can't get them out of my head. It's tile that looks like barnboard and some of the tiles have writing that makes them look like shipping crates. Some say "FRAGILE", "LONDON", "NEW YORK' etc. I'm diggin' it.
As for the vanity, I like the Hemnes vanity at Ikea. The price is right and the storage drawers are great. This week, I bought a toilet online at Lowes. I ordered it on the last day of the sale...why do I feel so victorious? Is it the fact that it was over $100 off? Or is it because I'm thrilled about ordering a new toilet? Maybe a little bit of both. Yikes.
I also want to share a fantastic built-in that one of Keep it Beautiful Designs readers sent to me after the post looking for your advice on the basement built-ins.
She and her hubby are DIYers and doesn't the end result look so great? Fresh, clean & a much greater use of space.

What a great job. I love how the tv sits in the framing. Gorg! Christine said she will send along a final, final photo when the bookshelves are all styled oh-so-pretty. I love seeing your renos as they develop. If you have a project you want to share, send them my way. I would be happy to feature you :)
Happy Mother's Day to all you mamas!
Happy weekend :)
Keep it Beautiful.
