I had promised in my last post to post sources for the kitchen but it has been selected for a photo shoot. I will let you know more about that later! So for now I will post before and after of the baths. We did these baths as reasonably as we possibly could while maintaining some interesting details.
Here is the before of one of the baths.The only entry to this bath was from the hallway. It was not connected to either bedroom.The “boys” kept the basic same arrangement of the bath below but they created an opening to the left of the present vanity into one of the bedrooms. They kept the door to the hallway so the bath can be accessed from the hall or the bedroom . Those guys are always thinking!
The vanity was replaced with a pedestal sink in order to conserve space to gain the extra inches needed to create a doorway. I am sorry I should have staged this a little better but I ran out of time!
Here is a picture of the shower before
Here is the shower after. These pictures are taken from the bedroom doorway. Sorry about the painters tape!
We were actually able to keep the beautiful tub by having it resurfaced. The tile is inexpensive subway tile from Home Depot. The liner is stainless steel and can also be found at Home Depot and elsewhere.
The result is a cleaner more contemporary space that blends with the rest of the house.
The other bathroom had one of those really “funky” showers in it. Again the basic arrangement remains the same.
I know you want that shower don’t you?!! Too bad another lucky person already bought it on Craig’s List!
This photo was taken before the shower door was installed. Again we used inexpensive subway tile. The liner is multicolored to incorporate the color of the floor tile and the vanity. I had no idea the vanity (console table) was made from multicolored recycled wood until we received it. At first I was put off by it, but it has grown on me and I rather like it.
The light is from Home Depot. The mirror is from one of my wholesale sources but you can find a similar one at Restoration Hardware. The baskets are from World Market. Colin cut a console table from Dovetail down to make the vanity. The sink is from the Stone Outlet. You can find sources for all of the products on my Pinterest Board here http://pinterest.com/chattersley/np/. The ceramic tile in both baths was sourced locally. If you are interested email me and I can track down the name. This tile has a really interesting combination of colors. It sort of looks like verdigrised (not sure is this is a word) copper.
That is all for now. I have a lot of current projects that I hope to share if I can find the time to get photographs. I am going to be opening an online store soon and will have a couple great giveaways in conjunction with that. I am off to a wedding in Chicago this week, and I have a post coming up about a talented reader of mine. So please stay tuned! I am sorry I have not been able to post as often. I will do my best to get back in the swing of things! Thanks for reading I so enjoy your comments and suggestions!
