Vintage Formica Vanitory — spotted in the wild

formica vanitoryWe’ve written about Formica Vanitory designs before — and now, I’m thinking that here is one spotted in the wild — for sale in Washington, D.C. area.  What a very functional design — with all the countertop space, yet set off the floor to make for easy cleaning and also a sense of greater space in a small vintage bathroom. Thanks to reader Beth for the tip and to the seller for permission to publish these photos here.

    Absolutely lovely! Too bad it comes so late for my pink and gray bath–the the width is just right. Sigh–one can’t have ALL the pink bathrooms, just one that is perfect for one’s house. 🙂
