I have something fun to share about my bathroom but first a little back story…….
(A little sneak peek! Can you guess what the update is?)
A long time ago (alright, 2 years ago) my faucet broke in my bathroom. In order to get it off of the sink we had to take the sink out. Once we took the sink out and got the corroded faucet off the sink clips broke. Because they were SO OLD I found out they no longer made those clips. We bought several other kinds of clips and none of them even came close to working. We had no way to put the sink back on the counter. So we now needed a new sink. But because the sink was SO OLD it was an odd shape. No sink on the market would fit the hole. So then we were faced with needing a whole new counter top. But at the time my husband was unemployed. We didn’t really even have money for a faucet or sink let a lone a counter top!
I wrote a post about my DIY counter top. I made it out of MDF, painted it, and sealed. It worked great for a temporary fix but I knew at some point we would need to get a real counter. It would only last so long.
After two years it was showing wear and tear so I reached out to a local granite company and I was able to pick out a remnant piece of granite. Eeeeeek! Tell me I am not the only one to get this excited over cold hard granite…. and no Twilight jokes, mmmmkay?
MGS By Designs was amazing to work with! I went to their shop in Lindon, Ut and looked through all the slabs of different stone they had available. They had a TON of choices. They also had a lot of remnant pieces to choose from. Picking a remnant is a very cost effective way to get a counter top. I was surprised how quickly we picked out our favorite. Once we saw it we just knew it would be perfect with the colors in our bathroom.
My boys collect rocks and were enthralled with all the different types of stone. We even got a full tour!
Once I picked out my granite and chose the edge, a template guy came and measure. Then was install day (or as I like to call it…. early Christmas).
I wasn’t the only one excited! My boys loved watching :)
Isn’t is so pretty!
I chose the ogee bullnose edge and I LOVE it. It makes it look even more high end.
I want to thank MGS By Design for the beautiful counter top. They were amazing to work with and I HIGHLY recommend them if you live in Utah and are considering getting granite. If you have any questions contact Stephanie firstname.lastname@example.org and she will help you out.
***I was provided the counter top as compensation for writing this post for which I will love MGS By Designs forever and ever. The thoughts and opinions are all mine, as usual :P
