I paid a visit to Home Depot today. Due to a small flood, and some pretty lax home maintenance, our downstairs bathroom is in a state of disarray and a small remodel is way overdue. The carpet was taken up about two years ago, the sink doesn’t match the toilet, the walls are a bit crumbly, and the medicine chest is one of those old metallic things with the sliding, mirrored door, circa 1950.
So armed with the dimensions of the smallest room in our house, I broke down and visited one of my least favorite stores on the planet. I’m always disappointed with Home Depot. I seldom find what I’m looking for, or anyone to help me find it. I was able to find the bathroom sink aisle I needed, only to find it blocked off by an orange, folding metal gate.
Not eager to wait, I decided to go take a look at some flooring that would be suited to a super cheap remodel. I found a few stick on tile and vinyl sheet styles that would work, only to find they were out of samples for the exact shades in which I was interested. Armed with dimensions and tape measure, I returned to the now-opened bathroom sink aisle. I was unable to find anything there that would fit our tiny bathroom.
Completely discouraged, I came home to try my luck online. I found a sink that will work, though it’s not very pretty. I found a towel bar that will fit, but it’s nothing special. I’m already disappointed by the results of this remodel and we haven’t even started.
