This bathroom has been a long, long process. We had many things happen that brought the project to a hault. We had things go much easier than expected. If you dont know what I am talking about please go back and read this post before you see these after pictures.
I am so happy to be done.
The results are so good.
We still have big plans for this barn door. As of now it is unfinished wood. All of the trim work has been ordered and shortly it will look like a remnant of a castle door that I found at a flea market in Paris!!
We used a vintage mirror that was extra tall to emphasize the tall ceilings. I painted it a gold to compliment the "champagne bronze" hardware we used throughout the rest of the bathroom.
Carrara marble runs from floor to ceiling in the entire shower area while a black hexagon mosaic slopes to the shower drain. Not a curb in sight!! Hurrah!
This is a custom niche made from black and white granite tiles. We found two tiles that mirrored each other and then we installed them with seamless edging. The result is stunning. It brought the whole bathroom to a level of sophistication that I wasn't expecting.
This is a Godmorgon cabinet from Ikea. I never loved the idea of cabinetry from there, but it was the perfect fit for the space and was easy modified. We added our own top, sink and hardware. It took on a much more expensive look, but still has that amazing storage capacity that Ikea cabinets are known for.
I chose Benjamin Moore's Salamander on the walls and we used the same Carrara tile to create a 5 inch base trim.
And these lions, what can I say……. why is the smallest and cheapest item from the bathroom my favorite??
I am so happy to have such an amazing master bathroom for the first time. I am so happy to have such a talented husband who will do all the crazy things I request of him.
On to the next project……
