I know I have been posting so much the last few days but I wanted to get all this done before we leave tomorrow morning. This is the last one for at least a week–I promise!
Next on my house tour is our downstairs bath. This bathroom would be a powder room except that it happens to be a full bath even though I don’t think anyone has ever used the shower before. We didn’t totally gut this space–just redid the floor, vanity, paint, etc. I still need to do something about the lighting. Here is the only before picture I could find from right after we moved in:
The towel holder next to the vanity is actually an antique cranberry picker, stained that color by the cranberries.
The vanity is an antique oak dresser refinished in tung oil. The sink is the Iron Bell by Kohler.
The sketch above the toilet is an original by my MIL. The basket is vintage. You can probably tell I love baskets. They are all over the house but they provide such great storage as well as texture in a room. We need the extra storage in this house which, like most old houses, doesn’t have a lot of closet space.
I added additional storage and display with the crates. It was supposed to be temporary but that was a while ago…
Believe it or not, this is a really dark room–there is about an hour in the summer where the light shines in and that’s when I took the photos–and I’ve been thinking lately about embracing the coziness and going totally dark in here. Honestly, there are so many other projects I need to tackle first that by the time I get around to repainting this room, I will have changed my mind anyway! But it’s hard to leave well enough alone.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
