We even had fun laughing at the drunk caulking job in the bathtub. Oh condo builders, are there any corners you won't cut?
I figured out what to do with storage and Ky agreed that it makes a lot more sense! I am going to get a horizontal medicine cabinet! Ikea sells my current cabinet as a horizontal model (my current model seems no longer available).

For the record (because I like to give credit where I can), I was inspired by this image of Kelsey's bathroom on Apartment Therapy:
When I saw this it was like a lightbulb went off in my head! A horizontal cabinet would maximize the space better (no dead space on either side).
I also plan to add two shelves above the medicine cabinet for towels and one below for some extra pretty storage. Trust me, there is a lot of room (and my towels are white and crisp and pretty to look at). I will then remove the shelving from the opposite side of the room (where my towels currently reside). Less shelves all over the walls= illusion of more storage. Sha-bam.
I didn't want to get another see-through cabinet but the solid versions of this cabinet are unattractive to me. I may try beefing up the film on it. And if I decide I want the wood-look more (I have been loving the warmth of wood lately), I can add those veneer sheet things they sell at Home Depot to it. Ky also suggested I could change up my vanity base with that too, but I would need new cabinet doors because they aren't flat. However flat cabinet doors match the condo style better (it's sleek) so who knows where I will go.
Ooh! and in other updates- how sexy is this colour?

So next step! Go to various places that well countertops and price out a new countertop! Fingers crossed for a good deal!
