These are NOT quite after, because there are some details still missing. But it came to my attention that I had not posted any photos of the master bathroom since we've moved upstairs. Probably because Miss Grace showed up early and I never got around to it. And then, I forgot. Please forgive me.
If you don't remember what the master bath looked like BEFORE we worked on it, here is something to jog your memory.
Here are the rest of the BEFORE photos. Click on the pictures in this old entry to make them larger.
I started to take some artsy, close-up photos and then quickly realized that I hadn't deep-cleaned the bathroom this week. So, um, you'll get the artsy close-ups later. These are the less artsy, FAR AWAY photos. That don't show the water spots.
I KNOW! Crazy different, isn't it? Who knew it could possibly look so good??? Seriously?
Big props to the winner of our Open Source Bathroom contest, Kristen from the American Bungalow Forum. She came up with the layout. We also drew inspiration from Diane's Divine Bath (another AB Forum participant). I think there was also something from a page out of a Pottery Barn book and catalog as well.
I love taking showers in here. Love it. All of that natural light and steam. I try not to think about how it reminds SOME people (remaining nameless) of a sixties go-go dancer booth.
Grace has a big fan of the tub since Day One. That probably goes without saying. (Look how little she used to be!!! Awhhh...)
Anyway, here are some of the materials we used to put this thing together:
Paint - Restoration Hardware Atmosphere Blue
Subway tile - American Olean Greenwich Village in Designer White
Tub - Salvage
Built-in cabinet - Salvage, original to the room
Beveled mirror glass for built-in - Clark and Devon Hardware
Medicine Cabinet - Van Dykes
Toilet and Sink - Kohler Memoirs
Lighting above sink - Discontinued Pottery Barn Sconces from eBay
Lighting next to built-in cabinet - Rejuvenation Detroit sconce in brushed nickel
Showerhead - Downpour showerhead with adjustable arm
Tub Faucet - Clawfoot Supply three-ball legtub faucet with gooseneck spout
Beadboard and trim - Stock pieces from Lee Lumber
Outlet covers and switchplates - Restoration Hardware Aluminum (Wow. They used to be HALF this price or even less!)
I think that covers it, unless you see anything in there that I didn't mention.
I don't miss turning on the shower with a wrench. Nope. Not at all.
