Wanna see it? I'm super, super excited to show it to you! First I am going to start with a few before pictures, I took these when we moved in, so they are pre-any upgrades that we have done to the bathroom.
|ACK! That's a bright gold shower!|
|Hmmmmmm, I'm pretty sure we can do better then plastic crystal knobs on the faucets and broken towel holders.|
|a nice clean slate ready for a change!|
|Pretty cool right? I bought the laundry basked at Target, and it is just right for placing in front of the toilet with enough leg room for sitting without feeling cramped, and there are no corners to whack yourself on. I replaced the original builder's faucets with some I got for $25 a piece at overstock.com, and the tile backsplash was one I did last year sometime to close the gap between the top of the vanity and the bottom of the mirror. (Oh I also did the lights myself too, I bought some black ones from Lowe's and painted a little gold accent on them to tie in with the gold trim on the shower.)|
|I used vintage silver-plate trays as wall decor in the bathroom, I like to think of them as the jewelry of the room!|
|the valance is the one I chronicled making here, and is the inspiration for the pretty grey blue color in the room as well as the gold and cream of the towels. (These colors also work really well with the gold shower.)|
|We changed out the original tub faucet for one I got on ebay for $50, and then I tiled a few colorful accent tiles into the splash guard around the tub, in order to tie in the backsplash and the original flooring. I have a couple of pieces of mercury glass around the room to continue the mirrored look. (My master bedroom also has mercury glass in it, so it ties the whole master suite together too.)|
|More mercury glass, and also a drink dispenser for mouthwash (I added cleaned glass marbles to the bottom of the container so that I don't have to use as much mouthwash to fill it up.)|
|I'm taking this moment to gratuitously point out my favorite picture of my husband and myself, my Hunny in an Air Force Mess Dress tuxedo? Yes please!|
|This is my jewelry chest, I got it at Hobby Lobby with all black knobs and changed out all the knobs for the color of jewelry that goes inside of each drawer.|
Anyway, I am super excited to have a done stamp in this room, and I hope you will like it as much as I do! I have all the photos ready to write up a tutorial on how to do the mirrored vanity doors, and I am pretty excited to share with you how easy it was! (I'll try to get it written in the next few days)
Here is the link to the door tutorial!
