Flip to page 68 and you'll find a four page spread featuring my master bathroom renovation:

It's hard to imagine that beautiful wall mounted sink was once sitting curbside headed for the trash.  I documented the day I found the sink on Instagram:

I saved it (and it's sister) on a whim and had my then 8 year-old son help me load them into our minivan.  This sink weighs a ton and the original plumbing trap was still attached full of the worst smelling gunk you ever did see!  I drove home thinking I would love to use these sinks someday when the time is right.

That time came last spring when we finally renovated the master bathroom.  Dreams do come true and I'm so honored to be in the premier issue of I Did It! magazine.  A special thank you to everyone who contributed to this space and made this article possible.

Be sure to pick up your copy of I Did It! magazine January 2017 issue, it's filled with projects you can do and lots of my DIY blog friends too!
