It was another busy busy week here in the bathroom renovation process. First things first, the doors!!! We decided to sacrifice privacy doors for the light that they would allow to go back and forth between the bedroom and bathroom. They are custom doors that were stained to match the existing, original doors in the house. They are beautiful!! We didn’t really want doors as much for the privacy as for the noise control of running water, the vent, etc. and I’m hoping these help with that.
We also got the custom vanity installed this week. It turned out even more beautiful than I had hoped. It is hard to tell here, but the original bathroom vanity was the same size, but butted up to the wall on the right side. We got a little more space on the left end when we took John’s closet and reconfigured the layout and I decided to center the vanity on this wall. It looks more furniture like, in my opinion. I also asked them to jut out the two sink spaces just by a couple of inches to add interest. The source for the hardware is below.
The crown molding and baseboards also went in, and the entire space was painted. Here are my colors:
- Walls – Ben Moore White Dove in eggshell
- Trim – Ben Moore Alabaster in semi gloss
- Ceiling – Ben Moore Alabaster in flat
We took out the linen closet and added more cabinetry instead. It is a beautiful piece and will be much more functional than what we had before (a deep closet with only three 18″ deep shelves and a lot of wasted space)
The counter company came out to measure and template that this week, and the glass shower surround should be in next week!
