We have one of those oh so glamorous 1970’s style en suite master baths. Which in this house means it’s about the size of a postage stamp. It needed a total remodel. We even had to replace the subfloor under the potty. Who knew a new toilet could be so exciting!
Sorry, blurry pic. The shower curtain was a $3.00 Goodwill find.
I would have loved to replace this cabinet above the toilet with something vintage. But painted it duck egg blue instead.
And here’s what I really LOVE!
My new vanity and sink! I bought this buffet years ago for this very purpose. Boy was it worth the wait!
I choose this vessel sink because you could mount the faucet on the sink instead of having to mount it outside like many of them. Still searching for something to use as a back splash. Maybe some vintage tin from an old ceiling?
Again, duck egg blue and then distressed. I went ahead and waxed the top. We’ll see how it holds up over time.
Oops! Looks like I forgot to put on the other two knobs before I took pics.
This is the only thing we have left to do. Hang the lights. They’ll go on either side of the mirror.
Still looking for the perfect accessories. I just kinda threw these in until I find what I want. One of those “I’ll know it when I see it” type things.
Above are the most recent updates as of 8/14/13. The lighting is finished. I REALLY love my DIY kitchen cart turned bathroom cart. And the earring holder that I made and attached on one of the doors. The chair is a vintage chair that my Hubby gave me one year for Valentines day! Hope you enjoy my DIY bathroom!
