Yes, after 12 weeks, the renovation of our upstairs bathroom is all but complete! Would you like to see? Let’s start in the doorway. The first thing you see is the quartz cap on the toilet alcove:
I’m so glad we waited to find another remnant of the quartz (“Lattice” by Pental) to finish this half-wall instead of capping it with wood trim. Wood would have been very nice but this is much more elegant. To the left of the wall you can see part of the clawfoot tub. Here’s a look at the entire tub:
I love the look of the vintage bath hardware, including the telephone-style shower head. Now for the shower, in all its tiled and glassed-in beauty:
Moving counter-clockwise, here’s the five-panel door, which used to swing into the bathroom but now slides neatly into its wall pocket:
As you can see from the right side of the photo, I’ve already hung towels on the wall to the left of the shower. I chose a deep teal blue.
Am I saving the best for last? Maybe! Here is the mirror over the vanity, with the three sconces mounted in place:
Another view from across the room:
Even prettier with the lights on:
And, for some drama, here’s a shot of two the sconces with the lights turned low:
Back where we started, here’s another shot of the toilet alcove and wall cap:
And there you have it. Am I thrilled? Absolutely!
There is more to come, however. The plantation shutters I ordered for the windows are due to arrive by the end of June. I’m going to wait until they are in place before putting pictures on the walls. In the meantime, I’ll be looking for a long narrow console table, preferably vintage, to go in this space between the end of the tub and the half-wall . . .
. . . and a bench to go in this little corner:
Once the bathroom is truly complete, which may take a few weeks, I’ll post some before-and-after photos. Until then, if you want to review the project from the outset, feel free to follow these links:
