Bathroom Redesign May 1, 2010

We owed you this post awhile ago. Months ago, actually. The bathroom was one of the major “must do”s before we actually started living in the house, so we tackled it almost first in the grand scheme of Summer 2009 house remodel. Tiling the shower was the main goal, remember this post?, since the house came with thin plastic tile glued directly to the plaster (ick!). We accomplished that task while D’s dad was in town in July.


D’s dad took our hole in the wall and framed it out for a medicine cabinet… complete with two adjustable birch shelves.

We then found this jem at the REstore in Seattle.  It fit perfectly!

Then, we sanded down the white paint… look how great it fits!  After this picture, we sanded more and put a simple clear coat on the door.  That plus some new hinges… and its perfect!

Without further adieu, below are the after pictures. The final pieces of the design came together with Sherwin Williams Semi-gloss paint in Lakeshore, a vintage sconce fixture from the REstore as well.  We heart architectural salvage!

Does that whale look familiar?? You can read more about him here.

We filled out the design with a bunch of accessories we already had. Blythe gave me the Turkish tray for my birthday two years ago. The striped bamboo towels are from Target and i have had for awhile now. also, the artwork was posters picked up from traveling and a photo simply printed on an inkjet printer in a glossy painted vintage frame.

Here’s another shot of the Before so you can compare.
