Though not originally from Never Never Land, I sure feel that’s where I live some days. Renovations always take longer than anticipated, cost more than was budgeted, involve more work than you bargained for, and can be fraught with challenges. Don’t you love that word – challenges – it just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? Some days, not so much..but whether reno-ing a space or a hub, I am passionate about family, music, writing in all forms, and great food.

We finished off the alcove above the sink and stool by filling it with a floor-to-ceiling mirror glued to the drywall with silicone cement. At $160, it’s an inexpensive, useful way to make a room feel more spacious. Since the medicine chest was eliminated, we needed storage space for the stuff guests shouldn’t see. We bought a small cherry cabinet for those items.
My only options were to 1) expand the inset hole to accommodate a new cabinet, or 2) close up the inset with drywall. I chose to close up the hole and do without a medicine cabinet. It irked me to pay more money to a contractor for an unexpected drywall project, and lose the space and convenience of my medicine cabinet.
