Before we get to the "after" shots, I thought I'd share a photo of my hall bath when we bought our house 3 years ago.
Not so cute. And while we did tear out and replace the tile in the bathtub surround and the floor before we moved in, our little makeover stalled out until the One Room Challenge came around.
So, though the magic of wallpaper, paint, a little vision and the husband's renovation skills, I'm thrilled to share my hall bath "after" photos with you!
I repurposed an antique buffet I've had for a while but had no use for until we decided to transform it into a bathroom vanity. We only lost the use of the top drawer so not only is the piece unique, it offers plenty of storage.
I'm so proud of myself for getting this shot (above). I literally set the timer on my camera, held it against the opposite wall and hoped for the best. But wait, first take a moment to bask in the glory of that flame mahogany. So gorgeous!
The shower curtains and valance were made from off the rack curtain panels. We added grosgrain trim to the curtain panels and my workroom made the valance out of a third panel. The bamboo shade came with me from a former house. Lucky fit! The palm frond chandelier is vintage - I painted it gold myself.
So you know how I love a good mix, right? Since my buffet/vanity (buffity?) is so classic, I wanted to contrast that with a little bit of mod, and I knew this mirror would be perfect. Isn't it though? It was dark wood when I bought it but I sprayed it gold then painted over that with Liquid Leaf.
Thanks to all of your input I decided against the vessel sink, because lots of you warned me that they were not so user-friendly - so in this case functionality won out. I went with a polished chrome faucet because it's timeless and transcends trends.
And I love the little glimpses of my antique mirror wall.
Most everything in this shot I've had. The stag sconce is antique. I've had it for at least 5 years but never could find the right place for it.
The turquoise lamp is vintage too. Floor tile is readily available from the shelves of Home Depot and it's budget friendly. I chose it because I like how clean the white looks in a bathroom and the geometric pattern feels old and new at the same time. The wallpaper is Brunschwig & Fils Le Grand Palais.
Thanks for taking the time to visit today. I'd love to know what you think about my bathroom makeover!
