Here is my master bath that I tackled all by myself "Hubby did help me with the heavy stuff though." This all happened less than a year ago. This was by far the best, learning experience I have ever had.
This was the before a basic builder home bathroom, I wish I could find my photos of the opposite end of the bathroom. Believe me your not missing much it was just ugly.
So here is my new beauty and a list.
- Vintage dresser repainted.
- I added a wood top to raise 1", for inside clearance of plumbing.
- Delta Faucets from Lowes purchased a while back.
- Mirrors from Lowes, they were dark and have been painted Behr Oyster.
- I used original white sinks from the old vanity.
- Light Fixture Polished Antique Nickel Hinkley, I love love this fixture very well made.
- The walls are wood plank stripes, cut down to size 8" stripes from lowes 8mm underlayment.
- Planks are painted Behr Swiss Coffee. I actually have used this all over my house for base boards and trim.
- Chandelier was given to me by a friend and i love it...
I found this Cast iron tub on craigslist for a great deal it was also in great shape. I had to sand the outside of the tube to remove rust, then primmed and painted. The Inside porcelain was in great shape, all I had to do was clean with basic bath clean products.
- White subway tile from Home Depot.
- Snow white grout.
- Quick Pitch pre slope system, this gave me the perfect slope. In removing the old insert I gained 6 feet around. Awesome!
- Flooring is Pebble Tile with Snow white grout.
- Rain shower head is from lowes.
- Shower handle is a Delta series.
- Shower arm was a fantastic deal off of Ebay $10.00. I purchased it knowing it was chrome, so when it arrived I gave it a very light sanding with a green scrubbing pad and viola, a perfect satin look. I made sure I sanded in the same direction to give a even look.
- The Stone is a long quarts back splash, that I cut down to size and placed as my entry shower top.
The tube hangs over the ledge by a inch and if I ever put glass. I have more than enough room to place it. I have also gained 4.5sq feet by the tube. Plus by removing the old vanity, I gained more square footage around that area too!
- Shower curtains are from Amazon and are much longer than your normal curtains.
- Curtain rings are basic curtain rod rings purchased at Target.
- Shower rod is made out of copper rod. I soldered brackets to the rod on all three ends. This allowed me to screw them in to the ceiling and walls. As you can see its not copper anymore, I gave it a light brushing of silver paint.
- Wall color on this end of the bathroom is Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore
- Tile is from lowes
And that is it, all done and I'm in love....
