There's a Hole.

Well, after bugging him for a month or so, my husband got started on some of the updates for our guest bathroom. He scored some free satin nickel hardware from work.

He took down the builder grade mirror, only to reveal a fist-sized hole in the wall with no obvious purpose, except maybe access to the pipe? Since the new mirror is smaller and doesn't cover the hole, it has to be patched, textured and painted.

There was also apparently no junction box or stud installed in the wall for the light to attach to, but he managed to install the new light fixture we got on sale at Lowe's:

It is soooo much better than the ugly thing that was up there before, which looked like this only really dingy with the chrome worn off in places. It had been there since the house was built 15 years ago, judging by the white rectangle left behind once we removed it.
