Quick Fix Powder Room

Sometimes we can be so focused on a problem,
that a solution eludes us,
until friends step in. 

The new granite counter top for my powder room
was cut too short.
Oh no!
A 3/4" gap at both ends annoyed me for weeks.
 There was no additional granite for a backspash
and the space was too great to be filled by any tile.

What to do?

Thank goodness for clever, creative friends. 
 When I described my problem to them,
their reply was immediate:

Create a dry-sink.

And so we did.
Here's the gap, filled with wood.
Then 1x8 poplar was nailed against the wall.      

A 3" wide top, dressed with crown molding
creates the illusion.

And I finished off with a little paint.

Problem solved,
and a bathroom I can live with.

For every a problem, there's a solution,
but finding it can take a little time,
and talking with the right people helps, too.

Thank you girls for helping me.
