Master Bathroom: Phase 2

Remember Phase 1 of the Master Bath Reno? I basically fell in love with dark paint and fur. While it solved the issues of poorly-installed beadboard and trim, it only kind of solved the issues of storage we have in there (with the shelves above the toilet). Oh, and I tossed a teeny mirror in our nook-hole-thing until I found something else that worked better.

Master Bath Complete_HouseofGoldWell. That day is here. Remember thrifting (Dealbreakers) with my friend? And how I hinted that I found a mirror? Well, I did. It cost me approximately $8.99 at a Salvation Army here in town. YUSSSS. Mirror Detail_HouseofGoldAnd instead of a ridiculous pedestal sink in a master bath, we upgraded to a [small] vanity with an actual cabinet. And actual counterspace where we can put our teethbrushes.

Here’s how this all came together: The mirror was intended to hang horizontally. Not gonna work here. It merely required that I unscrew two of the screws on the back, reorient the wire vertically, screw the screws back in, and ta-daaaa! Winner winner, chicken dinner. Mirror Fix_HouseofGoldThe vanity? I’d been on the hunt for one of these guys since we decided to tackle the master bathroom. And I found this guy on craigslist for approximately $50. It was a maple-wood color. Which would be fine for most spaces, but not this one. So I primed and painted it white.

But first, we had to take out the pedestal sink, which meant we were left with a too-short tailpiece (the dark grey pipe thing), and too-long supply lines (the squiggle cord things). In the words of Shaun T., “this is no.”Vanity Underthings_HouseofGoldSo J fashioned up some plumbing (because he’s a MAN and that’s what MEN do), and I bought some shorter supply lines. And then we closed the doors and took pictures.

So for $58.99, we have a space that functions and is pretty!

Now I just have to sell the pedestal sink on craigslist.

  1. Love it! I would love it if you joined and contribute your awesome posts at my link party at City of Creative Dreams on Fridays šŸ˜€ Hope to see you there at City of Creative Dreams Link Party.

  2. LOVE what you did here–and for less than $60? That’s awesome! I love the dark paint color on the walls and I agree that white was the right choice for the new vanity. Usually I’m not a huge fan of gold (don’t hate me!) but the gold mirror totally works in this space. Looks fabulous!
